Today, two stage filter separator technology allows you to have the smallest possible vessel diameter, resulting in the lowest cost, while removing aerosol liquids and solid particles efficiently. The separator’s first stage contains replaceable BCE-GLF coalescing filters mounted on a tube sheet. Here the larger liquid particles and the solids are removed, while the aerosol liquid mist coalesces into large droplets (>10 microns). Some of these coalesced droplets fall off the filter but the majority are carried to the second stage. If there are solids present we can supply our BCE-GPF-CCF Pleated style cylinder. In the second stage, these large droplets are removed by a high capacity BCE-DPV Double Pocket Vane. (See ‘Vane Packs’ in the ‘FILTERS’ section)
Filter separators, and the orientation of the Coalescer Cylinders inside, can be vertical or horizontal (see images below).
