Droplet separation in the chemical industry

For the minimization of undesirable emissions

Droplet separators play an essential role in process engineering and chemical plants. They protect system components, save energy, increase product output and are a decisive factor when it comes to sustainably reducing undesirable emissions.

Droplet separation in the chemical industry

For this, droplet separators must be able to separate even the finest droplets with a diameter of less than 5 micrometers while at the same time minimizing pressure losses. This is possible only with effective separation systems that function in the long term even in highly corrosive environments and that can be seamlessly integrated into the existing installation. This in turn needs the right materials, an in-depth understanding of the respective operating processes and naturally also the suitable droplet separators. We offer all of this from a single source.

Droplet separation in the chemical industry in practice


  • Gas absorption
  • Condensation
  • Demineralization
  • Distillation
  • Evaporation


  • Modular system design
  • Highest degrees of separation for large liquid quantities
  • Separation of small droplets
  • Compact design even for high gas velocities
  • Low pressure losses
  • High corrosion resistance
  • Use also with high solid particle quantities
