ULTISEP® and LIQUISEP® technology featuring Pentair’s APEX element was developed to address the inherent deficiencies of the conventional gas-liquid and liquid-liquid separators, making it possible to effectively remove liquid aerosols from gas streams and hydrocarbons from fluid streams. It flows from the inside-to-the-outside, reducing the gas velocity as the droplets are being removed. The media technology is specifically designed to provide the desired level of separation and has the capability of providing effective separation from nano-levels to that approximating a demister pad.
APEX® Technology is specifically intended to keep annular velocities constant across the entire height of the element. This was accomplished by introducing a gentle taper in the element, so that the annular space on the outside of the element gradually increased from the bottom to top, keeping pace with the external gas flow as it exited the element.
The liquid contaminant enter the gas stream through any one of a variety of events including phase separation and condensation, compressor lube-oils from compression, chemical addition to pipelines (including corrosion inhibitors), and entrainment from overheads of contact towers resulting in aerosol distributions primarily in the nanometer range.
