The Voraxial® Separator is fitted with a patented non-clog, low-shear rotary assembly designed to create a vortex in the fluids flowing through the separator.
By this action, heavier materials (such as solids) are forced to the outside of the vortex while lighter materials (such as oil) are drawn to form the central core of the vortex, thereby creating separated flow streams.
A specially designed manifold is utilized at the exit of the separation chamber to collect the separated streams.

Custom Voraxial® Skid
The Voraxial® (above) can be easily mated to existing pipeline or equipment, supplied within a complete turnkey solution, or retrofitted into existing water treatment systems to improve the separation efficiency and reduce wastewater costs.
Operators will experience immediate savings in acquisition, installation, operation and maintenance costs.
The Voraxial® provides consistent separation without requiring any adjustments if the inlet oil or sand concentration and flow rate fluctuates. The standard Voraxial® is rated for 250psi and 250F but it can also be built to withstand more pressure or higher temperatures should the application require.

APPLICATION Pretreatment The Voraxial® 4000 Separator processes between 4,000 to 17,000 barrels per day as a pretreatment to provide a consistent influent stream to the IGF.
By installing the Voraxial® as a pretreatment, the customer increased separation efficiency
from: 72% without the Voraxial®
to: 93% separation with the Voraxial®.
APPLICATION Oil and Sand Separation: The above Voraxial®, combined with other equipment, is a compact turnkey solution installed on an offshore FPSO.
The customer cannot afford to lose any fluid pressure in completing the separation.
APPLICATION Water and Sand Separation: Two views of a complete turnkey system that includes three Voraxial® Separators working in parallel and in series, separating sand from water at rates of up to 30,000 barrels per day. The Voraxial® system is installed via hose connection to the customers existing system. The fluid pressure is approximately 15psi.
