Separate droplets as small as 1 micrometer in diameter

Kate Torzewski

Coalescers of type Phase Separator PT 800 and PT 500 were developed for an application to separate micro droplets of hydrochloric acid from silicone oil, and vise versa. The pressure vessels are made of carbon steel with an inner, 3-mm-thick PVDF lining. Unlike pressure vessels of pure PVDF or of glass-reinforced PVDF, the lined-carbon-steel type of vessel can be fabricated according to any user-defined design code, design pressure and vessel size. The coalescer elements and other internals are also constructed of PVDF with coalescing media of a special, acid-resistant micro-glass fiber with an optional PTFE microfiber. Droplets as small as 1 µm in diameter can be separated with this custom-designed coalescer. Hall 5.0, Stand H10–H13 — Franken Filtertechnik KG, Huerth, Germany
