Vane Inlet Diffuser

SAIPTECH designs and develops separation technology that makes oil and gas production more efficient and less expensive.

To overcome the criticality of separator inlet arrangements the use of SAIPTECH?s technologies will ensure the best achievable distribution. The Vane Inlet Diffuser is an excellent inlet device for a wide range of operating conditions and results in more compact solutions.

Excellent gas / liquid separation

Due to its optimal design and large open areas, the Vane Inlet Diffuser smoothly introduces the fluid into the vessel. As the fluid is evenly distributed among the vanes, the velocity is significantly reduced. This results in an increased gas-liquid separation by gravity at the inlet nozzle, improving the overall separation efficiency of the vessel.

No adverse effects

Adverse effects experienced with other inlet devices, like liquid entrainment due to high shear forces, do not occur in the Vane Inlet Diffuser. With the gas velocity reduced to a minimum, negative effects like swirling or liquid re-entrainment will be avoided. Due to the large open areas there is no pressure drop and no potential for blockage. Furthermore, no maintenance is required due to the very robust design.

Competitive Advantage

The advantages of the Vane Inlet Diffuser are:
  • Smooth introduction of fluids into vessel
  • Maximized liquid drop-out
  • Excellent gas flow distribution
  • Where required, Integrated Flow Conditioner
  • No pressure drop
  • No blockage due to large open areas
  • Maintenance free
  • Removable through Man Way
  • No welding required for installation
  • Easy retrofit
