Experimental Study of Oil-Gas Cyclone Separator Performance in Oil-Injection Compressor System
Experimental study of the separation efficiency of oil-gas cyclone separator for oil-injection compressor system was conducted with the aim of understanding the separation process and identifying the main parameters affecting the separation efficiency. Malvern Particle Size analyzer was applied to analyze the separators’ performance. By simultaneously measuring the oil droplet size distribution and oil concentration upstream and downstream of the separators, the separation performance was assessed. The results of the study contribute to an optimized cyclone separator design.
