Wright-Austin Gas/Liquid Separators
has established the industry standard air/liquid
separator designs for over 100 years. The product line
includes both cast products (cast iron, cast steel and cast 316SS)
as well as fabricated products, typically constructed from carbon
steel or 316SS, although they can be constructed of most alloys
available in plate form.
What are gas/liquid separators?
They are pressure vessels used to remove
entrained droplets and particles from a process gas (the most common
is compressed air and steam). Having no moving
or serviceable components and due to the patented internal geometry of the separator,
droplets and particles coalesce and drain from the separator with
minimal pressure drop.
The efficiencies for most of our separators are 99% for removal of
droplets and entrained particulate > 10 microns in size,
although we do offer versions which can remove finer droplets; a
coalescer style for removal of droplets as fine as 4 microns and
two stage design for removal of droplets >0.30 microns with
Cast products are typically stocked in non-assembled form,
requiring 3-5 work days for assembly and testing prior to shipment
after receipt of an order. Fabricated separation products
require 6-8 weeks for most "standard" (existing designs) and up to
12 weeks for custom designed separators.
If you need information or a replacement for
an existing Wright-Austin separator, we have access to many of the drawings and design details for
separators manufactured during the Wright-Austin™ days,
usually the applicable information is included on the nameplate.
Sometimes a picture and a few dimensions are all that is required
for identifying an existing separator.
While we provide sufficient information and resources online to
enable you to size your own air/liquid separator,
we encourage you
to contact us for assistance for your specific application. The best way to proceed is to fill-out our inquiry form
, as it will
prompt you for most of the information we require to properly size a
separator for your application.
