spherical separator

1. n. []

A ball-shaped vessel used for fluid separation. A spherical separator can be used for two-phase or three-phase separation purposes. Spherical separators are less efficient than either horizontal or vertical cylindrical separators and are seldom used. Nevertheless, their compact size and ease of transportation have made them suitable for crowded processing areas.
