Acoustic multiphase high pressure separator is designed to accurately determine incoming mixture fractional composition during filtration experiments.
The separator is a device consisting of two or three interconnected high pressure vessels. The first vessel receives the mixture from core holder output and fluids gravitational separation. The second and third vessels are equipped with high-precision acoustic level sensors and accurately determine the entering them phases volume (water-oil; oil-gas). Detection of phase boundary position during the experiment is carried out by digital measurement system consisting of ultrasonic signal source, ultrasonic signal receiver and software. The software automatically defines liquid / liquid and gas / liquid section boundary, calculates phases volume and core sample saturation degree changes.
Calibration procedures are provided that allows user to accurately measure volume and makes the measurements independent of incoming fluids type.
Optionally, the acoustic separator can be equipped with an automatic valves system.
