Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SEPARATING AND MEASURING MULTIPHASE IMMISCIBLE FLUID MIXTURES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE SÉPARATION ET DE MESURE DE MÉLANGES DE FLUIDES MULTIPHASES NON MISCIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) An automated process and accompanying apparatus simultaneously separates and measures the flow rate of any multiphase mixture of immiscible fluids. Such separation and measurement can occur in a single vessel (10), or multiple vessels. Liquid levels, together with a material balance analysis, are utilized to determine constituent liquid flow rates. The vessel(s) can be remotely operated and monitored in real time, while also allowing for automated or manual calibration.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé automatisé et un appareil associé permettant de séparer et mesurer simultanément le débit d’un mélange multiphase de fluides non miscibles. De telles séparation et mesure peuvent se produire dans une cuve unique (10) ou des cuves multiples. Des niveaux de liquide, conjointement avec une analyse de bilan de matière, sont utilisés pour déterminer des débits de liquide de constituant. La ou les cuve(s) peu(ven)t être actionnée(s) à distance et surveillée(s) en temps réel, tout en permettant en outre un étalonnage automatique ou manuel.
