Mesh pad separators (P51)

Demisters, also known as mesh pad separators, are used in a wide variety of applications in most industrial sectors worldwide.

FAUDI demisters are used in process engineering plants where they are applied to separate liquid droplets from gas, steam or air flows and for the phase separation of non-mixable liquids.

FAUDI offers an application-oriented, practical and economical solution for these tasks in the form of the mesh pad separator. These separators offer a high level of separation performance even under elevated temperature or pressure conditions.

We are able to complement our standard sizes with in construction as needed with project-specific products using adapted dimensions and materials – all tailored to your use case.

how does a mesh
pad separator

In the FAUDI demister, the main separation mechanism is the inertia of the liquid droplets. The gas with the droplets flows through the wire mesh with multiple deflections. Due to the many changes of direction and the moment of inertia of the droplets, they collide with the wire surface and collect at the nodes of the wire mesh. The collected liquid droplets then fall downwards as larger drops into the collection chamber of the separator.

The application of mesh pad separators depends on the droplet loading and droplet size distribution in the gas phase, the required separation efficiency, the pressure drop and the solids loading of the gas flow.
