HRT Radial Spin Separator
For gas flow in any direction
The HRT Radial Spin Separator is an in-line unit that uses centrifugal spin to separate droplets form the gas stream. It is a versatile design which is used in applications where plugging may be a problem.
̃ High liquid capacity
̃ Gas flow can be in any direction, including down-flow
̃ Retrofits easily in existing ductwork
̃ Suitable for vacuum and pressure processes
̃ Non-plugging, maintenance-free operation
̃ No moving parts
Materials of Construction:
̃ Metals: 304, 316 stainless steels, carbon steel;
̃ Plastic: FRP and Thermoplastic lined FRP;
̃ Available in any fabricatable material
̃ Face velocity: 6-12 m/s; special types up to 15m/s.
̃ Limit drop size: 25+ microns, depends on gas flow
̃ Capacity: 2000 – 200,000 ACFM
̃ Performance data shown in curves is f(face velocity) at standard gas density (1.2 kg/m3) Actual performance is based on actual process data.
(Conversion: 1m/s ~ 200 ft/min; 1 mbar ~ 0.4” WG)
Used in gas streams containing “dirty” droplets which cause plugging or rain-out, and where maintenance-free operation is essential.
̃ Protection of ventilation fans; paper machine exhausts
̃ Collection of entrainment from scrubbers, especially with particulate loading; reactors; blow tanks (pulp); evaporators; steam vents; general process gas cleaning;
̃ Elimination of droplet rain-out – stack mounted
Available on request
HRT Separator complete with all necessary accessories (spray, hatch, pre-separator etc.): coupled with system fan; also stack for rain-out types.
Principle of Operation:
Specially designed static spin vanes in the inlet throat induce a high velocity spin which separates the
droplets from the gas by centrifugal force. The droplets collect in the separation chamber and drain from the
Types and designations
Series HRT: (Radial spin separators)
These are a family of separators that use axial spin
(in-line centrifugal) to separate droplets from the gas.
They are available in a wide variety of configurations
and operate with the gas flow in any direction
(including vertically downwards). They are used a lot
in "dirty applications" i.e. where there are plugging
materials present. The HRT does not have the
smallest limit drop size but it is the most versatile and is un-pluggable.
The HRT is supplied as an integral unit complete with housing or a part of stack or pipe system.
