spray research has a custom test fixture
specifically designed for the evaluation of liquid particle separation
technologies and for the support of
development efforts requiring a particle separation component.
A number of cyclonic separators, mist eliminator vanes or pads can be mounted
in the fixture. The two-phase flow is established with either blowers [vortex,
regenerative, radial blade] or a liquid-ring vacuum pump. The flow path is
highly configurable and can accommodate up to Ø150mm [Ø6"] process lines.
The fixture features a generous number of optical access ports for observation,
motion analysis or particle dynamics analysis.
Full-scale mist eliminator technologies can also be evaluated in the
wind tunnel/process duct section.
