Euromesh - Inlet Cyclones
EUROMESH® Inlet Cyclones applies centrifugal forces to the fluid mixture, to achieve optimal degassing of the liquid. The incoming fluid mixture flows smoothly from the inlet pipe into the highly optimised tangential inlet zone, before entering the separation zone of the cyclone. This lessens the potential for droplet shatter and gently releases the gas from the liquid under influence of centrifugal forces, thereby optimising the gas/liquid separation process. The gas-free liquid mixture travels with a swirling motion to the liquid outlet of the cyclone, where the low velocity levels ensure the best possible liquid/liquid separation. Since this design does not incorporate any guide or flow control vanes, extremely good sand handling capabilities are obtained. It should also be noted that little or no gas will normally be present in the liquid(s) leaving the inlet cyclones. Thus, the use of inlet cyclones has the added benefit of preventing foaming in the separated liquids.
The following areas of application can be identified:
- Production and Test Separators
- Gas Scrubbers
- Gas Knock-out Drums
- Slug Catchers
- Produced Water Degassers
- Flash Drums
- Flare Knock-out Drums
- Free Water Knock-out Drums
- Enhanced Oil Recovery Systems
- Mitigation of Wave and Sloshing Effects

The company has an extensive background in trouble-shooting, de-bottlenecking and revamping at client’s production facilities. This gives an unrivalled ability to provide the most functional, cost effective design, along with the commitment to assess future abilities by applying our “whole life” concept and principles of BATNEEC # Best Available Technology Not Entailing Excessive Costs.
Our knowledge and unique range of Separation Technologies allows us to supply bespoke equipment, purposely designed and manufactured for Onshore applications, Offshore platforms, Semi-submersibles, Tension Leg Platforms (TLP) and Floating Production Units (FPUs).
All of our separation equipment is fully trial assembled and inspected, before delivery to the client. In addition, a full-sized mock-up of the vessel and the installation can be undertaken. Finally, it is our practice to offer the services of our qualified project management staff members whenever our equipment is to be installed, whether this requires their attendance onshore or offshore.
