– Liquid Separators - mist eliminators and droplet separators.
quality design and engineering expertise gained over many years
involvement in the oil, petrochemical and chemical industries
provides a sound basis for selection and process design of an
extensive range of droplet separators, mist eliminators and coalescers.
range of gas-liquid and liquid-liquid separators, gas-liquid distributors
and flow equalisers.
for horizontal or vertical vessels offer a solution for a wide
variety of separation problems.
continued cooperation with university research institutes Costacurta
is able to develop fluid-dynamic studies for the optimization
of design, sizing and performance.
mist eliminators, made from layers of mesh specially arranged
in a cellular structure usually supplied with support grids for
prevention of carry-over in any liquid-gas processing operation
to improve performance of distillation columns, vacuum flashers,
fractionating towers, absorbers, evaporators, cooling towers and
manufactured in a wide variety of materials.
Droplet separators for horizontal flow installed in horizontal
and vertical vessels. These are made with vanes equipped with
a variable number of pockets for draining the separated liquid
and used for removal of droplets mainly by the inertial impaction
mechanism. Used with particularly high gas velocities or when
the droplets conveyed by the gas may contain small quantities
of suspended solid particles or when they are highly viscous and
in cases in where the use of VICO-Tex® is not recommended.
Droplet separators for vertical gas flow using parallel moulded
vanes with a shape that forces the gas to make a series of changes
in direction. The droplets are removed the same way as VICO-Vane.
Used to separate large droplets, which may contain small quantities
of suspended solid particles, or highly viscous droplets. Normally
fitted when the installation of VICO-Tex® or VICO-Vane is
not possible or not recommended
Filter candles comprising cage and coalescent filling are
for separating small droplets, down to 0, 3 microns, using
inertial impaction mechanism, direct interception and Brownian
movement. They must operate with particularly clean vapour
streams, so return very high separation efficiencies and
suitable for process fluids as used in absorption columns
in sulphuric or phosphoric acid plants or downstream of
liquid ring compressors or in atmospheric vapour effluent
flow cyclonic droplet separators provide excellent separation
by centrifugal force. They are made of a group of elements
whose number depends on the working conditions. They work
with a high gas velocity enabling the use of smaller vessels
at high working pressures and are only slightly affected
by any changes in gas flow and clogging caused by solids
in the gas stream. Suitable for installation in horizontal
or vertical vessels.
