gas separator

1. n. [Well Completions]
A device used to separate entrained gas from production liquids. Surface processing facilities generally use gas separators to render the liquids safe for further processing or disposal. Gas-separation equipment is also used in downhole applications, such as the protection of pumping equipment against gas lock by separating and redirecting free gas at the pump suction or inlet.
