MES Series - Mist Eliminator Separators

Mist Eliminator Separator

Mist Eliminator Separators or Demister Pad Separators are used for removal of liquid droplets (dispersed phase) entrained in gases (continuous phase). The dispersed phase can cause corrosion to downstream equipment, cause undesired reactions resulting in low quality product and/or product rejections and cause air pollution among other issues.
