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.
