PhaseSep® FR1 Liquid/Liquid Coalescer

Retrofits Facet* Tie-Rod Mount Style Elements

Pall’s PhaseSep® FR1 Series liquid / liquid coalescer is designed to directly retrofit Facet International coalescer vessels designed to hold tie-rod mount style liquid / liquid coalescers.

The Pall PhaseSep FR1 system is a multiple stage unit starting with preconditioning of the fluid with a Pall particulate filter followed by the PhaseSep FR1 coalescer. The preconditioning filter removes particulate matter to prolong the service life of the PhaseSep FR1 coalescer and initiates coalescence of the dispersed phase.

Pall preconditioning particulate filters are available in numerous configurations that can fit directly into your current prefilter housing. If you do not have a prefilter installed,a system can be provided by Pall.

The PhaseSep FR1 Series coalescer utilizes the same proprietary PhaseSep medium that Pall employs when it sells new liquid / liquid coalescer systems. The FR1 series product allows customers to adopt Pall coalescer technology without the need to purchase new capital equipment.

Applications
  • Separation of pyrolysis gas from quench water in ethylene plants
  • Separation of oil from water
PhaseSep FR1 Liquid/Liquid Coalescers:
  • Remove dispersed liquid contamination to a level consistently less than 20 ppmw oil and grease*
  • Handle dispersions with inlet liquid contaminant concentrations as high as 10%
  • Separate dispersions with interfacial tensions as low as 0.5 dyne/cm
* By Infrared Method (EPA413.2)


Pall Corporation must review each application for the PhaseSep FR1 Liquid/Liquid Coalescer for technical feasibility. It must be determined if enough coalescer area is possible and if the existing Facet housing is long enough to prevent the two liquid phases from recombining once the emulsion is broken.

If appropriate, two or more 20 inch long Pall PhaseSep FR1 style coalescers can be coupled together with a Pall supplied coupler to increase the amount of coalescer area in the housing.

Figure 2: Filtration: Solid particles are removed from the fluid stream by the filter medium.

Coalescence: Small droplets are merged into larger ones as they pass through several layers of filter media in the coalescer.

Separation: Gravity takes effect, the large droplets are separated from the product fluid stream.
