API SPECIFICATION 12J — SPECIFICATION FOR OIL AND GAS SEPARATORS
|D O W N L O A D|
The present API Specification is intended to provide the coverage of the minimum technical requirements applicable to the design, fabrication and subsequent testing of the oil and gas separators of oil-field type as well as of the oil-gas-water separators; the content of the document covers the vertical and spherical separators as well as the single/double barrel separators.
The volume starts with the introduction where the scope of the Specification is outlined and some general information is given, which is necessary for understanding of the rest. The definitions used throughout the document have been provided in the same section. The next chapter of the Specification is dealing with the materials, their proper selection and associated corrosion consideration. Then a chapter comes fully devoted to the design of the separators and covering their sizing, temperature/pressure ratings etc.
Sample calculation is also provided in this chapter. The rest of the chapters address marking including API and ASME Code nameplates and stamping, inspection and rejection issues including ASME inspection. Six annexes to the main content supplement it providing corrosion guidelines and process considerations, calculations, design information etc
