When gravity forces alone do not produce an efficient separation of immiscible fluids, adding a KOCH-OTTO YORK® liquid-liquid coalescer system can improve separation efficiency. High separation efficiency can result in only a few parts per million (ppm) liquid dispersion in the liquid effluent stream.
Created using combinations of KOCH-OTTO YORK knitted mesh and co-knit mesh, structured packing, and parallel plates, the exact combination of products in each coalescer system varies depending on your application.
When existing separator drums have no internals or very crude internals that result in inefficient liquid-liquid separation, KOCH-OTTO YORK coalescer products can be designed and manufactured to easily retrofit existing vessels, often without welding to the vessel shell. New applications are designed to handle multiple liquid and gas phases.
Coalescer systems can be offered as the complete package including the vessel, liquid distributors, coalescing media, the mist eliminator, and vortex breakers.
