Eaton Gas/Liquid Separators


Eaton Dry Type Gas/Liquid Separators have been designed for applications with a higher than normal load of entrained solids. In order to handle the large amount of solids, these separators feature a conicalshaped sump that better promotes the collection of removed solids at the drain port. The separated material collecting at the drain port must be removed before it fills the sump area. Since automatic drain traps are not suitable for draining solid materials, use of a rotary valve is recommended for this purpose. This type of valve will allow the solid material to be removed while releasing a minimum amount of air, gas, or steam from the system.

When correctly specified and installed these separators will remove from an air, gas or steam stream 99% of all entrained liquid droplets and solid particles that are 10 microns in size or larger. The removed particles and liquid will accumulate at the drain port at the bottom of the drain sump for removal.

The Type DTL separators are centrifugal separators that cause the gas stream to enter a controlled centrifugal flow. This action forces the entrained liquids and solids to the outer wall. The exclusive Eaton Vortex Containment Plate (VCP) system shields these separated particles and liquid droplets from the vortex action within the separator and directs them toward the drain sump. The exit stream is drawn from the clean and dry center of the separator. The VCP prevents re-entrainment of the removed liquids and solids and assures a clean and dry gas stream at the separator outlet.

Type DTL Separators are available in three different configurations. The DTL-T has a straight-through flow connection, the 33L-DTL has a vertical downflow inlet and a horizontal outlet, the 31L-DTL is a compact, straight-through flow design.
