Mist elimination (general)
In any process where gas and liquid come into contact, the gas will entrain some liquid droplets. These mists can cause process inefficiencies, product loss, and serious equipment damage.

Benefits of mist eliminators
  • Reduce losses of glycols, amines, or other solvents from the top of gas treating towers.
  • Allow significant increases in capacity of existing knockout drums without the need to change piping and foundations.
  • Protect turbine, blower and compressor blades and cylinders from mechanical damage due to liquid entrainment.
  • Prevent poisoning of expensive downstream catalysts or provide boiler feedwater quality condensate from evaporator overheads.
  • Help reduce droplet emissions from vents and stacks to environmentally acceptable levels.
