Mist elimination secures process efficiency, provides protection for downstream equipment and recovers valuable solvents
No other application area than the process industry has such demanding tasks for mist eliminators. Varying process conditions such as volume, temperature and density changes make every separation task to a challenge.
Beside liquids, process gas flows can often be contaminated with solids. In order to eliminate all relevant particle sizes, Munters uses all relevant separation technologies. This includes vane separation, agglomeration (coalescence) and filtration.
Applications in the process industry cover the removal of process based liquid carry-over, the removal of condensed liquids and the cleaning of process gas from contaminants.
Efficient removal of liquid process carry-over is necessary in process inlet scrubbers, distillation towers and absorbtion column using solvents. Mist eliminators recover valuable solvents and stop liquid re-entrainment thus protecting downstream equipment.
Condensed liquids are a result of changes in pressure and temperature. They can be a valuable product or a liquid that reduces the process efficiency. Mist eliminators recover valuable products or simply remove the liquid from the gas phase.
Contaminants are liquids, gases or solids, such as water, salt, sulphur compounds, sand and varying amounts of undesirable hydrocarbons, that must be removed from the gas stream. They must be eliminated from the process because their presence can lead to complete component failure.
Munters Mist eliminators are installed in front of compressors, in or behind columns, in scrubbers or behind heat exchangers.
Munters provides ready-to-install internals as well as complete systems for e.g.
