Isolating inlet activity in
horizontal liquid-liquid coalescers
by Sam L. Mitchell
Introducing liquid-liquid coalescing media into an empty drum can dramatically increase removal efficiency of one phase from another. However, it is equally important to provide an optimal environment for the new media installation to perform the separation.
The size and type of device on the two or three phase inlet should be addressed first, insuring inlet velocity and orientation of flow allows for the smoothest transition possible into the bulk current of the drum.
