PhaseSep® WR Liquid/Liquid Coalescer

Introduction-

Retrofits WAKO Carbon Fiber Rod Mount Coalescers

Pall Corporation’s PhaseSep WR Series liquid/liquid coalescer is designed to directly retrofit WAKO carbon fiber liquid/liquid coalescers. This new coalescer does not require field assembly as is the case with the WAKO product, thereby saving time when completing change outs. Pall Corporation offers world wide support to assist you with the most challenging separation demands.


PhaseSep WR Coalescers:
  • Handle dispersions with inlet liquid contaminant concentrations as high as 10%
  • Separate dispersions with interfacial tensions as low as 0.5 dyne/cm
  • Reduce sodium levels from cumene hydroperoxide – cumene streams in Phenol plants down to <2 ppmw on a consistent basis

The Pall PhaseSep WR system is a multiple stage unit starting with preconditioning of the fluid with a Pall particulate filter followed by the PhaseSep WR coalescer. The purpose of the preconditioning filter is to remove particulate matter to prolong the service life of the PhaseSep WR coalescer and to initiate 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 WR Series coalescer utilizes the same specially formulated proprietary PhaseSep medium that Pall deploys when it sells new PhaseSep High Efficiency liquid/liquid coalescer systems. The WR series product allows customers to adopt Pall coalescer technology without the need to purchase new capital equipment.

Retrofit Options

The PhaseSep WR coalescer can directly retrofit WAKO tie rod style liquid/liquid coalescers (WAKO assembly part number CF-19300-42T). No field assembly of the Pall PhaseSep WR coalescer is required. The element slides over the existing housing tie rods along with a coalescer spacer, and is then sealed using the existing housing flange and spring loaded seal nut (See Figure of Pall PhaseSep WR Coalescer installed assembly).

Compatibility

The PhaseSep WR coalescer is compatible with many corrosive chemicals encountered in the chemical and petrochemical industries including phenol, cumene, cumene hydroperoxide, hydrogen peroxide, organic acids, caustic, methylene chloride, alkaline amines, and essentially all organic solvents. For compatibility information with a specific chemical, please contact your Pall distributor or Pall applications engineer.
