Liquid Liquid Coalescer Separators are two stage units and utilize coalescing cartridges and separator cartridges for the separation of two immiscible liquids
Available in a horizontal or vertical configuration, the Winston/Royal Guard Type 62-CC-2S Liquid Liquid Coalescer Separator is used for the separation of two immiscible liquids such as water from a hydrocarbon. Applications include separation of trace amounts of water from oil, condensates, kerosene, gasoline, diesel, and others, in the refining, petrochemical, chemical, and oil and gas industries.
In the Liquid Liquid Coalescer Separator, hydrocarbon liquid (continuous phase) mixed with trace amounts of aqueous solution (discontinuous phase) passes through two types of cartridges for effective liquid separation. Removal of water is down to, or less than 10 ppm.
The first stage cartridges coalesce tiny droplets of dispersed water, enlarging them enough for most to settle to the bottom of the vessel by gravity. Ultra-fine solids are captured in these cartridges and are removed with the cartridge change-outs. The liquid flow moves through each coalescer cartridge from the inside out, and therefore less surface area is available with which to retain solids. If heavy particulate loading is expected, a filtration unit such as a Type 61V Liquid Filter should be installed upstream of the Liquid Liquid Coalescer Separator so as to extend the time between cartridge change-outs.
The second stage cartridges separate any remaining water droplets. The treated cellulose pleated cartridge media is hydrophobic, allowing oil to pass through while repelling water. These separator cartridges are available in 5 and 25 micron designs.
