A Heated separator is a separator with an integral heating element incorporated into the design. They efficiently separate liquids and gas while also introducing heat to protect production equipment, valves and pipelines from clogging due to the buildup of paraffin.
The difference between a Heated separator and a Heater Treater is the pressure rating, the retention time, and the water content in the oil between the two designs. The heated separator is purposed for separation and the Treater is designed for emulsion reduction.
Tri-Point offers models in both horizontal and vertical designs.
