VTSC Séparateur Triphasé Vertical Commandé par Ordinateur



Description Générale

The Computer Controlled Vertical Three-phase Separator, "VTSC", designed by EDIBON, is a unit that allows the study of the main characteristics of gravity separation and the effect of viscosity, flow and density difference in this separation.

Two computer controlled pumps drive water and oil to a point of mixing that also reaches a current of air produced by a computer controlled blower.

There are two level switches, one in each feed tank, to ensure the correct level for proper functioning of the fluid circulation pumps.

The mixture of water, oil and air enters by one side the vertical separator, made of transparent material.

The entry separator makes the initial gross separation. The liquid flows down and the secondary separation section begins.

For the separation of the air there is a fog extractor in its upper part.

By means of two overflow type outlets both water and oil separate phases are extracted, to return each one to its deposit.

This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.

Des exercices et pratiques guidées


  1. Analysis of the design principles and control parameters of a three-phase separator.
  2. Study of the separation of two immiscible liquids.
  3. Study of the influence of the viscosity of the oil in the separation.
  4. Study of the influence of the flow rates in the separation.
  5. Study of the influence of the density difference in the separation.
  6. Study of the Influence in the separation of a variation in the water cut.
  7. Study of the influence on the residence time of a variation in the water cut.
  8. Study of the influence of the water / oil ratio on residence time for separation.
  9. Sensors calibration.


  1. Study of the influence of the flow in the formation of emulsions.

Other possibilities to be done with this Unit:

  1. Many students view results simultaneously. To view all results in real time in the classroom by means of a projector or an electronic whiteboard.
  2. Open Control, Multicontrol and Real Time Control. This unit allows intrinsically and/or extrinsically to change the span, gains, proportional, integral, derivative parameters, etc, in real time.
  3. The Computer Control System with SCADA allows a real industrial simulation.
  4. This unit is totally safe as uses mechanical, electrical/electronic, and software safety devices.
  5. This unit can be used for doing applied research.
  6. This unit can be used for giving training courses to Industries even to other Technical Education Institutions.
  7. Control of the VTSC unit process through the control interface box without the computer.
  8. Visualization of all the sensors values used in the VTSC unit process.
  9. By using PLC-PI additional 19 more exercises can be done.
  10. Several other exercises can be done and designed by the user.
