Motor Gas Separator

The Tempress gas separator incorporates a turbine-powered rotary drum centrifuge to bypass gas above a PDM motor.  Fluid flow is ported through the motor.  Without a separator, the combined fluid and gas flow rate are limited by the equivalent flow capacity of the motor.  Bypassing the gas allows operation of the motor at the design fluid flow rate.  A replaceable gas port in the separator allows the nitrogen bypass rate to be set independently.
