Hi, Could someone help me as I am trying to figure out how does a sour oil trap of a centrifugal compressor work. The only information I have is that a sour oil trap basically removes the process gas trapped inside the seal oil and vent it (please correct me if I am wrong) and that it contains a float and orifice etc. What I really want to know is that how do these components come together to separate process gas from oil and what is the purpose of a blow down valve in the trap??
