Coalescing Separator Vertical ACF

Principal of Operation

The  Anderson Coalescing Filter is a multi-stage separator that  provides maximum solid and  liquid removal. The  primary stage of separation is designed for removal of large particulate and  liquid loads through gravitational and centrifugal force.  If a high solid or liquid load (slugging) is present, additional separation internals are  available to provide bulk removal and  extend the  life  of the  coalescing element.

The  final stage of separation consists of one  or more multi-special layered fiberglass / polypropylene coalescer elements. The  entrainment laden gas  flows from the  inside to the  outside of the coalescer elements.  The innermost layer acts as a pre-filter to remove submicron solids. The  fibers of the  middle layer capture the  fine  liquid droplets suspended in the  gas  and  cause the  droplets to run  together and form large droplets within the depth of the filter.  These large droplets emerge on the  outer surface of the coalescer and drain by gravity to the  lower collection chamber. The clean gas  passes from the  coalescer elements and  exits through the  vessel outlet.
