The gas-liquid cylindrical cyclone (GLCC©) is a simple, compact and low-cost separator, which provides an economically attractive alternative to conventional gravity based separators over a wide range of applications. As shown in Figure 1, over the past 20 years more than 6,000 GLCC’s have been installed around the world by the Petroleum and related industries. However, to-date no systematic study has been carried out on its structural integrity. The GLCC inlet section design is a key parameter, which is crucial for its performance and proper operation. This paper presents Finite Element Analysis (FEA) simulation results aimed at investigating the effect of various parameters on the inlet section structural integrity. Finally, recommendations on design modifications are presented, directed at strengthening the inlet section.
