Coalescing separator working principle and application field

Lefilter2022-12-10 BACK TO LIST

In the process of petroleum refining or mechanical processing, due to the water in the raw material itself (or the reason for the water entering the process), the medium is inevitably mixed with water. The existence of water will affect the process effect, process equipment and product quality. Cause adverse effects, therefore, the Coalescing separator plays a vital role.

coalescing separator

Coalescing separator breaks through the single filtration mode of traditional filters, integrates filtration and dehydration, and can filter out various tiny particles, moisture, fibers and suspended solids in fuel. It is an ideal oil purification equipment.

Product structure and working principle

Coalescing separator is mainly designed for liquid-liquid separation. It contains two filter elements, coalescing filter element and separation filter element, and is equipped with drain valve, drain valve, differential pressure gauge, safety valve, heat tracing device and other accessories.

In the oil water removal system, after the oil flows into the coalescing separator, it first flows through the coalescing filter element to filter out solid impurities, and coalesces extremely small water droplets into larger water droplets. Most of the coalesced water droplets The water droplets can be separated from the oil by their own weight and settle into the sump.

Then the oil product flows through the separation filter element, because the separation filter element has good lipophilic and hydrophobic properties, so as to further separate the water, and finally, the clean and water-free oil product flows out of the coalescing separator.

The coalescing separator mainly plays the role of oil-water separation, the water content of the incoming oil is 400-600ppm, and the water content after filtration is ≤100ppm.

Application field

Coalescing separator is suitable for aviation fuel, gasoline, kerosene, diesel oil, liquefied petroleum gas, low-viscosity hydraulic lubricating oil, turbine oil, etc., airports, oil depots, city gas, mine gas, liquefied petroleum gas and other fields.
