Separations using Low Mix Option

  • Mixed liquid phases are pumped or gravity fed to the housing through either or both inlets and are channeled to rotor inlet.
  • Mixed phases are pulled into the rotor and subject to ā€˜Gā€™ forces.  Liquid entering the bottom of rotor displaces existing volume over weirs.
  • Light phase flows over fixed central weir and is ejected into lower collector ring.
  • Heavy phase flows through underflows and over the variable diameter weir ring before being ejected into upper collector ring.
  • Heavy and light phases gravity drain out the opposing outlets into collection vessels

Liquid Phase Separation Process Parameters:

  • Ratio of Liquid Phases

  • Specific Gravity

  • Viscosity

  • Solubility

  • Droplet Size

  • Chemical Interactions
