Coalescer Gas Liquid Separators

Wright-Austin Coalescer SeparatorWright-Austin high efficiency coalescer air liquid separators for horizontal or vertical up-flow applications are very compact and can be installed and supported within the pipeline without costly supports. 

Coalescer separators are designed to remove 99% of entrained liquid  in the form of a fine mist or fog (as fine as 4 microns) from a gas vapor.  Coalescer separators are used in applications where fine mists are encountered in processes involving cooling, condensation, flashing or evaporation.  Examples include removal of water or oil from refrigeration gases, evaporator overhead steam, compressed air prior to a desiccant dryer bed, high pressure gas at injection wells, fuel gas lines to engines in power and industrial plants, natural gas distribution lines and regulator stations.

Coalescer separators employ a two-stage separation process, The first stage is the coalescer stage, the smaller liquid droplets enter a wire mesh pad in the vessel.  As these droplets pass through the mesh, they grow in size prior to entering the second stage where they are centrifugally propelled to the outer wall and coalesce to the bottom.  The patented vortex containment plate prevents reentrainment after separation. Coalescer separators are constructed to ASME code for unfired vessels, Section VIII, Division 1.  An ASME stamp and CRN registration is available for sizes 2½ inches and larger.
