Three Phase Separators

The three phase separators are pressure vessels used to separate gas, oil, and water. TSI Fabrication is an ASME licensed shop capable of fulfilling client's three phase separator system needs. TSI can provide a turnkey solution from design, engineering calculations, 3D modeling to fabrication. Alternatively, clients can submit their design dossier for fabrication. In addition to following client's requirements TSI builds pressure vessels and associated piping using industry standards such as ASME Section VIII for pressure vessels, Section II for materials, Section V and IX for welding and testing procedures, ASME B31.3 for process piping, NBIC Repairs or alterations, API 6A for high pressure piping, and NACE MR0175 for sour service applications. Fabrication of separator systems is not limited to vessel and piping systems. TSI manufactures trailers and frames to package the separator system in either land or offshore modules (DNV 2-7.1).

For other sizes, designs and applications such as production units and four phase separators consult TSI Fabrication.
