The Sheffield Kinetic Separator
What it Does
How it Works
A) The fast flow path enters the first chamber. System pressure forces a slipstream (the analyzer sample) in the reverse direction, while the main flow (containing the separated contaminants) exits the bottom of the chamber. Gravity and inertia cause kinetic separation of the slipstream of representative process components from the heavier contaminants.
B) The sample is routed to a polisher chamber, which again uses the gravity and inertia of an exit flow and slipstream redirection to effect a second kinetic separation. Both chambers exit the bottom of the separator to a common low-pressure return. The polisher chamber employs a flow meter to control at the optimum sample flow.
C) The entire length of this polisher chamber
acts as a housing for a filter that is customized to target specific
contaminants. For instance, a filter can be used to coalesce mist or
condensate and remove particulate from a gas stream. It can remove free
water and solid particles from a liquid hydrocarbon process. It also can be
equipped with 316 stainless steel filters for back flush applications with
stack or water samples. In all applications the flow passes vertically
though the filter at a flow, which impacts the filter element at a shallow
angle. This combined with momentum of the flow has a self-cleaning effect.
