Coalescing Separator Vertical with
Centrifugal First Stage ACF-HF
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 an Hi-eF™ centrifugal 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.
