Eaton Dry Type Gas/Liquid Separators, formerly Wright Austin, have been designed for applications with a higher than normal load of entrained solids and are available in three different configurations. A straight-through flow connection, a vertical down-flow inlet and a horizontal outlet, and a compact, straight-through flow design.
When correctly specified and installed, DTL separators will remove 99% of all entrained liquid droplets and solid particles that are 10 microns in size or larger from an air, gas, or steam stream. The removed particles and liquid accumulate at the drain port at the bottom of the drain sump for removal.
Maintenance and Spare Parts
Eaton separators have no moving parts. All components are either bolted or welded into place. Therefore parts lists are not available. The separators are bolted, threaded, or welded into the lines. They are self-cleaning, and do not need lubrication or maintenance. For this reason, lubricating, operating and maintenance manuals are not available.
Moisture laden gas enters the inlet of the separator where it is deflected by Eaton’s unique Cenpellar™ into a centrifugal motion. The entrained solids and moisture droplets are separated out by a reduction in velocity. Separated liquid and solids fall into the separators integral drain trap where Eaton’s exclusive Vortex Containment Plate (VCP) ensures that they cannot be re-entrained. The VCP is constructed with a series of carefully placed rings and plates that shield the separated liquid from the vortex action within the separator to prevent re-entrainment . The VCP also helps direct the liquid to the drain trap while at the same time moves the clean, dry gas to the separator outlet. With Eaton’s exclusive VCP the need for expensive, delicate baffles that are used in ordinary separators is eliminated.
