Internal Baffle Assembly for Centrifugal Separators

I70 centrifugal separator baffle

At the heart of centrifugal separators are the internal elements or baffles which create a complex pathway that droplets and particles larger than 10 microns cannot pass through without impinging upon.  Thus separator elements must be sized large enough to handle the process flow rate without much of a pressure drop as well as having the capability to drain the liquid load quick enough.

I70 Separator BaffleThe separator body requires a certain diameter and some companies prefer to simply use our elements and fabricate their own vessels.  We have two styles, the I-60 for "up flow" and the I-70 for "down flow" exit paths.

Properly sizing an element involves using only 65% of the equivalent air or steam flow based upon our capacity charts and calculators.  Non-air gasses need to be corrected to their equivalent air flow when using the sizing chart; our calculator will automatically do this for you.

To calculate the minimum distance from the bottom of the element to the surface of the liquid add 12" to the pressure drop across your vessel in inches of water.
