Abstract

A novel gas separation process makes use of a rotating phase separator to separate micron-sized droplets from a gas stream. Based on an industrial scale design, a water/air separator is constructed and tested. The first experiment concerns the drainage of large fractions of separated liquid. During operation, drainage is observed via windows and a descriptive model is formulated. Because of the major influence on overall separation efficiency, liquid drainage is a key issue in the separator design. The second experiment comprises a droplet collection efficiency measurement using micron-sized droplets dispersed within the airstream. The separation efficiency of fine droplet removal is measured. This is an important factor in reducing capital costs.
