Too much light material in the feed to the Fractionator could cause the Heater Charge pump to cavitate and loose suction. This would trigger a low flow trip on the Heater but this wouldn’t be because of a two phase flow. Some light material in the feed to the Fractiontor could cause an increase in Fractionator overhead make and if uncontrolled could lead to a Compressor shutdown.
