Slotted Gas Shield - OSI



The Odessa Separator Slotted Gas Shield is designed specifically for wells with high lifting costs associated  with  gas failures. The Slotted Gas Shield is made up of diffused intake ports which minimize  gas entering  the separator  and  a large body annulus, which  reduces  the  fluid  velocity  allowing  for  gravity  driven  gas  separation. 


The  fluid  enters  through  the slotted intake, where the first stage of separation of free  gas  occurs  in  the annular gap “by mechanical action wherein the coalescence of gas particles occurs colliding directly with the slot,” then the fluid travels down inside the housing of Slotted Gas Shield. 

- Mitigates the gas slugs.

- Reduces or Eliminates the Gas locking.

- Multiple stages of gas separation.

- Allows sand & gas separation when is combined with

  the Vortex Sand Shield.
