Process complications caused by emulsions can include equipment fouling, off-spec product, increased operating costs, and unscheduled shutdowns which can lead to loss of production and revenue. Emulsions are mixtures of two or more liquids in which there is a fine dispersion of one liquid into another known as the continuous or bulk phase. Properly designed coalescing systems separate the dispersed liquid from the continuous phase of the process stream so that downstream contamination is avoided.
Our Strata Liquid-Liquid Separation technology offers a complete line of coalescing elements to address even the most complex emulsions. Strata coalescing systems provide excellent coalescing efficiency, capacity, and liquid contaminant removal to eliminate costly problems and provide process reliability.
