Vertical Coalescers are designed to meet higher removal efficiencies. Flow path is inside to outside which allows droplets to fall in a lower velocity environment. Vertical coalescers are ideal for final polishing and protection of sensitive equipment. Removal efficiencies to 0.3 micron are possible.
Flow enters the vessel and passes through a diffuser which separates bulk liquids which fall into the lower sump. Gas continues upward through the coalescer filters which polish the gas. Liquids drain to the upper sump.
