Summit ESP offers a high performance suite of Vortex gas separators designed to mitigate the downtime and other impacts of free gas excessive ingestion into electric submersible pumps during oil and gas production.
Summit ESP’s separators are available in 338, 400 and 513 Series. Our highly efficient and advanced line of Vortex separators are designed to allow continuous operation of the ESP system in the most extreme gaseous applications, effectively reducing the unnecessary shutdowns caused by gas interference in the pump.
The Summit ESP Vortex technology is standard in all three series, thereby avoiding the documented design flaws of “rotary separators” that have reliability issues when operating in abrasive applications. To further enhance reliability, our standard offering includes corrosion resistant metallurgy and abrasion resistant (AR) bearings. Our AR bearings are constructed with robust tungsten carbide and provide radial support to extend operational life in severe-service well conditions.
In applications where a single separator is unable to handle the volume of free gas, either tandem separators and/or net positive suction head (NPSH) pumps are available for both the 400 and 500 series. Standard to our NPSH pump line are tungsten carbide bearings at the flange connections as well as optional thrust bearing support throughout the pump assembly.
