R style gas/liquid separators have a two stage process for separation. The initial stage the liquid enters the inlet and is deflected downward, losing velocity, resulting in a majority of the liquid to accumulate within the reservoir. The remaining moisture laden gas passes up through a vaned element where the remaining moisture is separated by centrifugal force, coalescing within the reservoir. The resulting dry, clean gas flows upwards and exits through the outlet of the separator. Wright Austin accomplished this without complex baffles, deflectors and other structures that obstruct the flow-stream and this results in very low pressure drops.
R style gas/liquid separators are fabricated from carbon steel, 304SS, 316SS and can also be fabricated from exotic alloys when needed.
R style gas/liquid separators are available with ASME code stamp and CRN. All fabricated R style gas/liquid separators are designed in New Jersey (USA) in accordance with ASME Section VIII, Division I.
