Oilfield Separators Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of oilfield separators, which are used in oil and gas processing. These separators split oily water, gas, slop oil and crude oil, which are all by-products of oilfield production. Separators are either vertical or horizontal and cylindrical or spherical in configuration. Separation is accomplished primarily by gravity or centrifugal force, with the heavier liquids falling to the bottom or outer edge of the tank and the gas and lighter liquids rising to the top or center of the tank. This report does not cover water treatment separators for wastewater processing.
