Application background of gas-liquid separators is introduced. Centrifugal gas-liquid separators have many advantages, which are analyzed by comparing with normal gravity settling facilities. Experimental research was carried out. Test rig and facilities are described. Test prototypes are transparent plexi-glass separators. Through transparent prototypes, interior flow field can be observed clearly. Experimental phenomena of different structure plexi-glass prototypes are compared with and analyzed, some test photos were recorded. Test data of plexi-glass prototypes were obtained. Results show that the separating performance of the centrifugal gas-liquid separators is satisfactory. The structural scheme of high-efficient separator design is concluded.
