Vertical Mist Separator WV1


The Type WV1 VAKUTEC@ mist separators  are especially suitable when aerosols must be separated due to the demands of environmental protection.


The following descriptions are for mist separators sizes DN180 to DN1250 for air stream volumes of from 1.100 to 68.800m³/h. VAKUTEC@ mist separators Type WV1 needed for a larger air stream volume require special planning and adaptation.


The mist separator is constructed equipped with a quick locking mechanism. This makes maintenance or an inspection within the shortest time possible. The removal direction of the mist separator units, depending on the air direction being left,right or upwards is adapted to the local conditions accordingly.


Type WV1 VAKUTEC@ mist separators work on the principle of inertia. The aerosols found in the air are carried by the air stream and are dispersed onto the mist separator partitions. Due to the curvature of the profiles the moisture drops are driven down the innerface and due to gravity channelled downwards. As an option the mist separator can be equipped with a coagulator. The coagulator is positoned between the mist separator units so that the smallest drops are enlarged and then separated into the second mist separator. During transition the separator unit is intermittently sprayed for cleaning purposes with the help of double spray nozzles positioned upstream.


The materials used depend on the specific physical and chemical capacities. Preferably synthetic materials such as PVC,PP and PVDF are used. In special cases stainless steel profiles as mist separator units can be fitted.

Technical details

With an even air stream flow the mist separator unit without a coagulator achieves a 99.9% separation of a minimum drop size of 15u with a loss of pressure of 300Pa. With coagulator the separator efficiency rises on a drop size of 10u with a pressure loss of 400Pa.
