The separator is one of the most important and often used vessels on a plant. In this unit you will learn what a separator does, what internal parts it must have to do its job, and how they work together, You will also learn what substances can be separated and why they must be removed from each other, the main factors in separators design, how to control the separators parameters, the main operation concepts, and the most common problems and troubleshooting. This course is designed to provide necessary information and practice for such activities.
