Industries, Inc. manufactures its own liquid / gas separator. The separator
consists of a two piece 316 stainless steel housing, and a Teflon membrane,
pre-filtration on input, and 1/8"FNPT on outlet and on drain output. The
separator's membrane only allows gasses to pass through it, thus preventing any
liquid to pass. The liquid simply falls to an outside container which can be
Principal of Operation
The cooling coil brings the temperature of the incoming sample gas down to room
temperature thus turning any liquids that may be in the gaseous phase into the
liquid phase. After the sample is cooled, it enters the liquid / gas separator.
At the heart of the separator is a porous Teflon membrane. The membrane allows
gasses to pass through tiny holes in the membrane while not allowing liquid to
pass due to their high surface tension quality. The separated water then falls
into a liquid collection container, which can be easily emptied and the liquid
free gas easily exits the separator.
