Rethink your liquid-liquid separations
A fresh look investigates general principles in designing process coalescers
Efficient liquid-liquid separations are an integral part of
many industrial processes. Water entrained in oil and other
hydrocarbon products can impede quality specifications.
Entrained oil in process water streams puts additional demands
on effluent treatment systems.
Under the present economic environment, processing production
demands push plants and existing equipment beyond the original
design capacity. Equipment that formerly made clean-phase
separations can no longer do so. And for new plants, strong
economic incentives push process designers to incorporate
equipment with smaller footprints to minimize weight, plot
space and capital costs.
