Centrifugal gas liquid separators supplied by the company feature a centrifugal element.
As the air, gas or steam flow enters the separator, it is forced through the centrifugal element.
The heavier moisture droplets and dry particles are centrifuged to the outer periphery of the flow and impinged against the vessel's wall.
The flow forms a helical pattern as its path extends to the drain side of the separator. The flow then reverses by way of a centre vortex. This centre return vortex is potentially a danger point where re-entrainment is most likely.
The Eaton Vortex Containment Plate or VCP combats re-entrainment by providing a quiet zone where the entrainment is permitted to fall out of the flow. This arrangement effectively segregates the removed entrainment from the outlet flow.
Eaton gas liquid separators have no moving parts. All components are either bolted or welded into place.
The separators are bolted, threaded or welded into the lines. They are self-cleaning and do not need lubrication or maintenance.
Eaton gas liquid separators, when properly sized, installed and drained will remove 99% of all liquid and solid entrainment where particle size exceeds 10 microns.
