MIST ELIMINATOR FAQ

 

* Mist Eliminators are described by the DIRECTION of GAS FLOW: horizontal and vertical

    - Horizontal flow Mist Eliminators have the gas flowing horizontally

    - Vertical flow Mist Eliminators have the gas flow Vertically.

* Agilis Mist Eliminators can be manufactured in any material available in sheet stock. Typical materials are 304 and 316 stainless steel, alumimum, polypropylene, kynar, carbon steel and many other materials.

* Agilis Mist Eliminators can be manufactured in square, rectangular, triangular or circular configurations

* Mist Eliminator performance is defined using three terms: 1) Limit Drop, 2) Pressure Drop and 3) Fractional Efficiency

    - Limit drop is the smallest droplet that can be collected at 100% efficiency.

      A limit drop of 20 microns indicates that any droplet 20 microns or larger cannot pass the mist eliminator.

    - Pressure Drop is a measure of the amount of energy used by the mist eliminator. It is measured in inches of water column.

    - Fractional Efficiency is a measure of the collection efficiency of droplets smaller than the Limit Drop. If the Limit Drop

      were 20 microns the Fractional Efficiency at 15 microns would be 75% indicating that 75% of all droplets 15 microns

      in size would be collected.

Mist Eliminator

Evap Cooler

DH™ 4300 droplet separator profile when assembled into models forms a vane kind separator for horizontal movement. The streamlined profiles with numerous bends ensure high liquid masses combined with high separation efficiencies. The profile is created in talcum strengthened polypropylene. It could therefore be utilised in a wide selection of processes below different operating circumstances. DH 4300 droplet separator profile can be supplied as regular 5 metre lengthy profiles or in tailor produced lengths that are shorter than 5 metres. DH 4300 droplet separator profile is developed for use mainly following spray humidifiers and air intakes. The profile is ideal for use at encounter velocities in between two and 8 m/s.

Droplet Separator

The streamlined separator profiles deflect the droplet laden gasoline stream, as being a result the momentum from the droplets causes them to impinge on to the profile surface area. The droplets coalesce with each other and form a liquid film, the affect of gravity leads to the liquid to drain to the bottom of the profiles. Specially shaped separation chambers enhance performance by enhancing the separation of finer droplets and ensuring issue free discharge of liquid. To prevent “flooding” from the profiles and the possibility of re-entrainment of the separated liquid, the peak of the profile sections is generally restricted to 2,five hundred mm.

Demister

Demisters are particularly suitable for small and moderate gas velocities and are designed to achieve a high separation efficiency in the case of solid-free gas flow. Installation can be horizontal or vertical, e.g. directly at the top of the column. Demisters are available in stainless steel (SS304, SS316Ti etc.) as well as various kinds of high performance plastics. For the separation of fine droplets, we recommend the DeKombi© Mist Eliminator. It ensures maximum separation efficiency whilst keeping the pressure drop to a minimum. It is designed for vertical installation.

A demister is a device often fitted to vapor-liquid separator vessels to enhance the removal of liquid droplets entrained in a vapor stream. Demisters may be a mesh type coalescer, vane pack or other structure intended to aggregate the mist into droplets that are heavy enough to separate from the vapor stream.

Demisters can reduce the residence time required to separate a given liquid droplet size by reducing the volume and associated cost of separator equipment. Demisters are often used where vapor quality is important in regard to entrained liquids particularly where separator equipment costs are high (e.g., high pressure systems) or where space or weight savings are advantageous.

For example, in the process of brine desalination on marine vessels, brine is flash heated into vapor. In flashing, vapor carries over droplets of brine which have to be separated before condensing, otherwise the distillate vapor would be contaminated with salt. This is the role of the demister. Demisted vapor condenses on tubes in the desalination plant, and product water is collected in the distillate tray.

Demisters are particularly appropriate for little and moderate gas velocities and are designed to achieve a higher separation efficiency in the situation of solid-free gas movement. Installation can be horizontal or vertical, e.g. straight at the leading from the column. Demisters can be found in stainless steel (SS304, SS316Ti etc.) as well as various sorts of high performance plastics. For the separation of fine droplets, we recommend the DeKombi© Mist Eliminator. It ensures maximum separation efficiency while maintaining the pressure drop to a minimal. It's developed for vertical installation.

A demister is really a device often fitted to vapor-liquid separator vessels to enhance the elimination of liquid droplets entrained in a vapor stream. Demisters may be a mesh type coalescer, vane pack or other structure meant to aggregate the mist into droplets which are hefty enough to separate in the vapor stream.

Moisture separator

Demisters can decrease the residence time needed to separate a given liquid droplet size by reducing the volume and related price of separator gear. Demisters tend to be used where vapor quality is essential in regard to entrained liquids particularly exactly where separator equipment expenses are higher (e.g., higher stress systems) or where space or excess weight savings are beneficial.

Mesh Pads

For instance, within the process of brine desalination on marine vessels, brine is flash heated into vapor. In flashing, vapor carries over droplets of brine which have to be separated before condensing, otherwise the distillate vapor could be contaminated with salt. This is the role from the demister. Demisted vapor condenses on tubes within the desalination plant, and item water is collected in the distillate tray.

Coalescing pad

The monofilaments in the B-GON® structure align roughly 93% of the fibers perpendicular towards the gas flow for maximum droplet removal efficiency. The conventional knitted kinds seldom exceed 67%. The higher number of fibers perpendicular to the gas movement allow for higher elimination efficiency per unit of pressure drop, which corresponds to reduce energy utilization, reduce working costs, and immediate outcomes.

Pre-coalescer

Kimre, Inc. manufactures the B-GON® Mist Eliminators out of thermoplastics ranging from polypropylene to PFA-Teflon®. This really is beneficial over the SS mesh when looking at corrosion resistance. B-GON® Mist Eliminators do not lose their form in service because of corrosion as stainless steel mesh can. The B-GON® Mist Eliminators mix the best features of knitted mesh and plate-type mist eliminators. The ladder-like structure from the B-GON® mesh leads to a change in direction of vapor movement which enhances droplet removal by impaction, interception, and centrifugal actions. This also creates a cross flow of captured liquid that flushes particulates from the media. The improved drainage of the geometric structure is a large advantage more than the knitted mesh pads shown around the following web page. The interlocking structure also offers the B-GON® Mist Eliminator with superb resiliency and resistance to compression or “cold flow” from the media.

Radial Spin Vanes

Whenever your application deals with dirty, fibrous or heavily particulate laden liquid/gas flows you should be looking at an Agilis Technologies Radial Spin Vane (RSV). This advanced design will also remove particulate or fibers that have been wetted.

  • RSV Advanced Design
  • Low Pressure Drop
  • High Efficiency
  • Maximum Velocity
  • Small Limit drop
  • Effective Drainage
  • Internal Spray Wash System
  • Variety of End Connections
  • Each Agilis Technologies RSV comes with three unique sections that perform specific functions.

    Inlet: The inlet section is designed with the double spin vane. Unlike a single vane with multiple blades the Agilis Technologies Dual Blade design provides more spin at lower pressure drop and more importantly resists plugging by particulate and fibers. The “Full Body Spin Vane” forces the gas and liquid into a precisely controlled rotation that maximizes the centrifugal force effects and promotes maximum separation.

    Wire droplet separator

    Main Body: The main body of the Agilis Technologies Radial Spin Vane is designed to slow the flow of the gas and liquid and to provide a dis-engagement zone. This area also includes a spray wash that allows the operator to clean the unit in place if required. Within the dis-engagement zone the liquid is.

  • RSV Advanced Benefits
  • Superior Gas-Liquid Separation
  • High pass drainage available
  • Short body design
  • Horizontal or Vertical Operation
  • Many Materials of Construction Available
  • Radial spin mist eliminators kind HRT are used to separate big quantities of liquid and condensate or dust from gas streams. They can be installed in vertical or horizontal position, e.g. in stacks, chimneys or pipelines.

    Numerous materials and sizes are provided to meet the customer’s specifications. Available materials are polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), PVDF, GRP, steel and stainless steel e.g. SS304, SS316Ti, duplex-steel and others on demand.

    Centrifugal separator

    Mist capture can happen by four mechanisms ( mesh pad, vane pack, cyclone, and fiber-beds). It ought to be kept in thoughts that you will find no sharply defined limits in between mechanisms. As shown in Fig. 1, since the momentum of a droplet varies directly with liquid density and the cube from the diameter, heavier or bigger particles tend to resist following the streamline of a flowing gas and can strike objects placed in their line of travel. This is inertial impaction, the mechanism accountable for removing most particles of diameter > ten µm. Smaller sized particles that follow the streamlines might collide using the strong objects, if their distance of approach is much less than their radius. This really is direct impaction. It's often the governing mechanism for droplets within the 1- to 10-µm variety. With submicron mists, Brownian capture becomes the dominant collection mechanism. This depends on Brownian motion-the continuous random motion of droplets in elastic collision with gas molecules. As the particles turn out to be smaller sized and also the velocity gets lower, the Brownian capture becomes much more efficient.

    Heated Mist Eliminators

    Technique and apparatus for removing droplets entrained inside a gas stream wherein a plurality of longitudinally extending eliminator blades (23) are positioned in side by side spaced apart relation for passing a gas stream with each blade having an inlet inclined section (35') and an outlet inclined section (35'') of opposite slope connected by an intermediate transition section (35''') establishing a convex surface (36) on the bottom from the blade along with a concave surface (35) on the top from the blade. The convex surface from the blade has a deviation greater than the deviation from the concave surface. The outlet section features a trailing end differing in shape in the leading finish of the inlet section and is shown as an airfoil section (40) at the trailing finish from the concave surface from the blade. The blades are provided with notches (25, 26) at their ends corresponding with notches (28, 33) in finish supporting plates (24) for mechanically interlocking each blade with the end plates.
