Hydro-Helical Delivers Superior Performance

Hydro-Helical gas separator solves difficult gas problems

  • Fluid remixing and inefficient separation due to regions of turbulent flow
  • Ineffective fluid separation patterns due to high-pressure differential across the separator
  • Limited maximum flow rate and pump compatibility from ingestion of fluid through exit ports
  • Flow losses, recirculation, and gas ingestion in integral tandem configurations

Top tier technology

  • Crossover technology enables maximum throughput efficiency of rotating fluids, optimum directional transfer of liquid, and increased erosion protection
  • Proprietary Erosion Buster® protection design throughout reduces erosion and wear
  • Innovative fluid moving stages produce 20% greater flow rate than conventional separators and 33% greater flow rate in integral tandem configuration
  • Anti-gas lock technology results in zero gas lock within the separator and thereby improved gas slug ride-through
  • Superior thrust protection reduces erosion and wear on running surfaces between the impeller and diffuser
  • Stationary helix vortex inducer creates greater than 95% separation efficiency, consistent separation of fluids at higher velocities and gas volume fractions, and eliminates erosion characteristics common in traditional paddlewheel vortex separators
