Abstract: In this paper, taking an oilfield as the research object, the pre-throttle water distributor is tested and studied. Aiming at the pre-throttle water distributor, the flow field of throttle tubes with different circles and sizes is calculated, the pressure drop and velocity are compared and analysed, and the test results are drawn. according to the test results, the optimal pipe diameter and circle number selected under different pressure drop are determined. The research results can play a good guiding role in the design of pre-throttle water distributor.

Keywords: water distributor; pre-throttle; throttle tube; pressure drop; flow rate.
