The PORTA-TEST WHIRLYSCRUB I inline separator provides excellent liquid removal, with a removal efficiency of 99.99% down to 10 um. Designed for separation of liquids from gases in natural gas or steam service, it is ideal for pipelines and processing facility applications with gas-dominant streams containing low amounts of liquid (3 bbl/MMcf or less).
Conventional separators typically use wire mesh, vane-type mist extractors, or filter cartridges to remove solid and liquid particles. To be effective, these devices must be operated at relatively low velocities. However, the PORTA-TEST WHIRLYSCRUB I separator uses the energy of the flowing gas to achieve separation, resulting in smaller separator size and weight and a reduced installation cost. Moreover, there are no consumables.
