Vortex Separators

REKPA A.Ş. is the leading manufacturer of Turkey in liquid removal technology from gases with its specially designed VORTEX SEPARATORS. VORTEX SEPARATORS separate liquids from steam, compressed air and gases by means of baffles through centrifugal force and convert it into dry and clean phase.

Working Principle
It is not possible to regularly disperse the liquid droplets around whole pipe internal surface. It is easy to take the liquid flowing at the bottom of the pipe by gravity.
The freely moving liquids may only be separated and collected by separators. The freely moving moisture and particles in various sizes in gas flow gets into centrifugal movement around the downwards conical cyclone or baffles and with increased flow of gas, the liquid particles, droplets and sediments in the gas is dispersed and separated into bottom part of the separator.
The dry and clean gas getting into wide inner volume is directed to the collector conical cyclone (optionally passing through a filter) and continue flowing through the downstream pipeline. The liquid and sediments go down into collector chamber under the stainless steel plate and can not rise up again. The liquid passing through the filter may be automatically drained by a steam trap (or liquid drainer) or manually by a drain valve . The level of liquid accumulating in the collector chamber may be observed by level gauge pipe.


Manufacturing Properties

Durable and maintenance free lightweight design.

Made of welded carbon steel and stainless steel construction.

Flanged, screwed and socket weld end connections available acc. to ISO, DIN and ANSI standards.

Strainer usage is not required before steam trap (excluding DN 15).

Manufactured in special dimensions for maximum efficiency for each application.

Pressure Strength and Sealing Tests as per AD MERKBLETTER HP 30.

Works in wide range of speed and ensures higher system efficiency.

In general, the connection size is selected based on pipe diameter.

Separates 99% of water droplets over 10 microns and all solid particles.

The pressure loss is approximately 0,1 bar.

• BOILER OUTLETS: Prevents chemical agents, abrasive liquids, foreign matters and water droplets in feed water from entering steam distribution lines.

• CONTROL EQUIPMENTS: Increases the efficiencies of control equipmenta such as pressure reducing valves, control valves, flowmeters and extends their lifetime.

• STEAM TURBINES: At inlets of steam turbines, it separates the water particles and avoids wearing of turbine wings and body.

• Heating batteries and driers.

• Kitchen devices, laundry machines.

• Multiple floor pressing machines (Rubber and wood presses);

• Autoclaves and sterilizers.

• Dye and dressing machines.

• Bakeries.

• Tea and tobacco plants.

Why should pressurized air pass through separate and filter?

The air sucked by compressor with dust and various particles is compressed with burned oil coming from the compressor. The water, oil and sediment in the compressed air enters the entire installation if not separated properly at the compressor outlet.

Vortex Separator to be used at compressor outlet separates 99% of water droplets and all solid particles. In case highly clean and dry air is desired, the driers and filters must be used.

It separates the liquids carried with fluids in all gases.

Easily installed into the system since no electricity connection is required. VORTEX SEPARATORS are the simplest way to separate liquids.

It is preferred by many engineers.

It is used in applications where the liquid load to be separated does not exceed the flow capacity of steam, gas and compressed air by max. 40% in weight.

Increases the efficiency and production quality (loss of efficiency with low heat transfer).

Decreases the maintenance costs and times (such as corrosion of pipelines – prevention of water hammer damage of mechanical parts).

• Decreases the operating expenses;
• Eliminates the shock loads on working parts;
• Avoids the equipment damage caused by erosion and corrosion;
• Requires no electricity ;
• Requires no maintenance;
• Affordable costs.
