Coalescer Training – Principles and Industrial Applications

Course: Half Day, 0.4 CEUs
Ali Arshad – Instructor

This course will cover the basics of liquid/liquid and liquid/gas coalescing including the principles of coalescing through fibrous media and modeling vertical and horizontal coalescer systems. The effects of various physical parameters such as viscosity, density difference and interfacial tension will be addressed in terms of how they affect sizing and performance. Field and laboratory test methods for rating the performance of coalescers will also be presented. Industrial separation applications will be reviewed along with practical examples of case histories.
