New data of the experimental performance of a Gas-Liquid Cylindrical Cyclone (GLCC) separator are presented. The data were collected using a 2 3/4" (0.07m) ID GLCC model working with an air-glycerin mixture. The inlet liquid flow rate, the inlet gas flow rate, the tangential liquid velocity inside the separator body and the gas carry under were measured for an operation regime without liquid carry over. The influence of the first three parameters over the gas carry under was established. Results show the separator efficiency is mainly affected by the inlet gas flow rate for the explored conditions with slug flow at the GLCC entrance.
