Centrifugal Compressors – Horsepower and Efficiency Estimates

One of the major benefits in doing your own estimates, rather than turning everything over to a manufacturer, is that you develop a better understanding of the application. You are then in a better position to discuss it with the … Continue reading

Compressor Flow Characteristics

The theoretical performance curve typically has a shape as is shown in the figure below. Friction losses Friction losses are the energy losses occurring in the various flow passages of the stage caused by gas friction (like pipe losses). Shock … Continue reading

High Efficiency Filters – Brownian Motion Media

Brownian motion media consists of a thick fiber mesh made from ultra-fine glass or polypropylene fibers. The media is packed between reinforcing screens for strength and can vary in thickness from one to several inches. Depending on the application requirements, … Continue reading

High Efficiency Filters – Liquid/Gas Coalescer Cartridge

Liquid/gas coalescer cartridges are similar to cartridge filters in appearance and size. The media is designed for the gas flow inside to out, thus allowing the coalesced liquids to “wick” down the special outer media wrap into a basin for … Continue reading

Horizontal Knockout Vessels

The basic horizontal knockout pot shown in Figure P-10 can have internals configured many different ways. As with vertical vessels, careful consideration must be given to the nature of the fluids the impingement device is to deal with. Corrosives and … Continue reading

Horizontal Knockout Drum – Determining Vessel Diameter

The maximum allowable gas velocity determines the required vapor space area above the highest liquid operating level. One method used to determine the required vapor space uses a variation of Souders Brown equation. The method takes into account particle settling … Continue reading
