The T-271 droplet separator is a vane type separator for vertical flow. The gas flow charged with liquid droplets is directed through separator chambers which are designed for maximum effect on the gas flow. As a result of this configuration, inertial forces act on the droplets. The droplets impinge onto the profiles, where they form a liquid film which is subsequently drained off as a result of gravity. V-shaped impressions on the separator plates ensure that the liquid is drained off in the correct manner and returns to the gas flow.
Munters T-271 vertical flow mist eliminator has been engineered to operate at higher velocities, recover expensive chemicals, reduce operating costs and provide performance far superior to any conventional chevron or baffle type eliminator. Opposing angle chevron collection grooves on each profile surface provide a low velocity zone where collected droplets accumulate and drain to the edges of the profile subsections. Ag-glomerated liquids then drain from the modules as large droplets forming a liquid stream without risk of being carried back into the separator by the up-flowing gas stream.
