Steam separators

In certain processes, it is vital that the steam is as dry as possible. Water drops can be removed using either a technology based on collision plates or with steam separators such as the GESTRA TD based on a rotary technique and utilising the effect of the centrifugal force. The advantage of the rotary technique is the much lower pressure loss (< 0.01 bar) as well as the clearly drier final result where the steam is 99.8 % dry.

Steam separators can also be used in processes where there are loose particles within the steam or air that must be removed.
