Improve Liquid/Gas Coalescer Performance
T. H. Wines, Hydrocarbon Processing, January 2000
The use of a surface treatment on liquid/gas coalescers is presented. Details on how the improved drainage properties of the surface modified coalescer media affect the sizing of the separation systems are described. The benefits of the surface treatment include smaller overall system size requirements, fewer coalescer cartridges, capability for higher inlet aerosol challenges, and lower pressure drop.
