Abstract


This article presents a design and commissioning of a multiphase flow loop, which was developed for scrutinizing the partial phase separation characteristics of pipe Tees. Its length is 9m and its primary diameter is 0.078m (3 inches). For the ease of modification, its design was kept modular, so that it could be used for testing various other pipe profiles. To validate this flow loop, the separation of a stratified-wavy flow was tested in a regular diameter ratio pipe Tee, and the gathered results were compared with previously published data. A good agreement was observed between the two data sources, which suggests that this flow loop is suitable for a further experimentation.
