The aim of the present work is the study of the hydrodynamic flow inside an oil-in-water monitoring device for subsea production systems.
Different geometries were tested for the equipment by varying the position of the diffuser and the geometry of the central section.
The main objectives of the study were:
For a fixed central zone profile, the recirculation zones diminish as the diffuser is located further from this zone.
It is interesting to notice that the shear stress sense is directly associated with the recirculation zones.
