Successful Case

Misdistribution of Fluids in a Separator


A common problem with piping systems is the misdistribution of fluids to the separator or slug catchers. This comes about because the multiphase flows with varying densities will separate and cause varying flow conditions in bends. Thus ANSYS simulation can be used to troubleshoot problems. In this case Fluid Codes Technical team helped Petrofac to conduct a three-phase CFD study for a header system to determine the cause of severe misdistribution in the system.
