Coalescing Plate Pack

Mixtures of immiscible liquids can generally be separated by a process of settling as a result of the density difference between the two phases. However gravitational settling becomes increasingly difficult as the droplet size of the dispersed phase decreases. The settling process can be enhanced considerably by passing the dispersion through a suitable Coalescing Plate Pack.
Plate spacing is typically 15 – 25mm (giving a bulk surface area between 75 and 125 m2/m3), standard pack length is 1000mm and the complete pack is assembled using a modular system from sub-assemblies. These sub-assemblies are designed to pass through vessel manways and be easily bolted together within the vessel.
Coalescer style, face velocity and configuration will depend on the specific application.
