BOLL & KIRCH

Coalescing Filter

In the oil and gas industry, the petrochemical industry and the oil refinery, liquid / gas coalescer filter are frequently used to remove liquids from gases such as seal gas, fuel gas, heating and cooling gas, injection gas as well as numerous technical gases. The coalescing filter element from BOLL & KIRCH consists of two layers, which fulfil different tasks: The first layer separates solids that may still be in the gas stream. In the second layer, liquid droplets are separated into a special tissue by coalescing the droplets.

Function

The small liquid droplets contained in the gas bond together on the fleece to form larger droplets (coalescence = compound). Gravity causes the droplets to flow down to the fleece fabric as soon as they have reached a certain size. The separated liquid can be collected and, if necessary, stored in a liquid container. Level measuring systems, magnetic level indicators or sight glasses (optional accessory) can be used to check the level.

Design

In order to ensure an optimal filter design (be it the simplex coalscer or the duplex coalescer), various factors are taken into account:

  • separation efficiency
  • differential pressure
  • quantity of solid and liquid particles to be expected
  • gas components

Other operating parameters that our coalescer filters take into account are, for example:

  • volumetric flow rate
  • pressure
  • temperature

The individual components’ state in the gas play a major role when designing the filter and selecting the appropriate separation mechanisms. Coalescing filters are generally used as a fine separator for droplets (concentrations normally in the ppm range). Here you find an overview of our coalescer / coalescing filter:
