A process of separating particles have been of major importance in many industries, including oil and gas engineering industry due to its application in pipeline system in which the viscous fluid flows. The entry into new technology areas in application to particles around a micro- nanoscale and smaller imposes an exclusive requirement for devices and techniques for the transportation of viscous fluid through pipelines. Due to the requirements to prevent the particle coarsening and formation agglomeration, the potential for a range of novel research opportunities is emerged. This paper presents an innovative separation device designed by authors, which uses the change of the energy of the particles to achieve separation of a mixture of oil particles. Furthermore, we investigate the impact of the parameters of the dispersers to its stability, and we put forward in evidence that there are best (optimum) parameters leading to better stability of the particle stream.
