The Wright-Austin 31-LST series of in-line
horizontal gas/liquid separators utilizes a two stage design remove 99% of droplets and
particles > 10 microns in size. As the moisture laden gas enters the separator,
centrifugal force is applied causing the the droplets and
particles to fall into the drainage sump where they cannot be
re-entrained into the gas flow.
The relatively clean and dry gas enters the second stage,
passing through filter elements to capture and coalesce finer
particles and droplets, which are collected in another drainage
sump where they cannot become re-entrained into the gas flow.
The filter elements are made of epoxy
saturated borosilicate microglass fibers with a glass matrix
drainage layer in retentions as fine as 0.30 microns.
Standard ports are provided for vents,
gauges and drains, although additional connections can be
provided. Type 31-LSF
separators are designed for 2½ to 16" pipelines in carbon
steel, stainless steel and other alloys as required. 31-LSF gas liquid separators are constructed to ASME code for unfired
vessels, Section VIII, Division 1. An ASME U stamp and CRN
registration is available.
