SLUG CATCHERS

A Slug catcher catches large and fast incoming volumes of liquid and are designed to reduce turbulence or act as a volume buffer to downstream equipment.Slug catchers are very often seen at the inlet of a large central gathering station where 1 or more lines are entering for processing.A Slug Catcher can also be called a inlet Settling Tank. A slug catcher brings consistency in operations downstream of it's stage, as all wells do not flow at a constant steady pressure and volume, the slug catcher "catches" all the different frequencies and sends the liquid to the next piece of equipment in a consistent and steady manner. Therefore, easing the load on the next processing unit.
