Droplet separators are used on ships in a wide variety of applications. The droplet separators protect downstream ship plant components, reduce energy requirements or help to comply with legal environmental regulations.
Possible areas of application are air intake systems as protection against rain and splash water or for the treatment of combustion air from engines. A further task is the use in the wet cleaning of exhaust gases to reduce the sulphur content. The use on ships therefore places high demands on the droplet separators.
Advantages of Lechler droplet separator systems:
The available materials include:
For the design and project planning of droplet separators, precise knowledge of the functional and performance data of the separator systems is required, as is a thorough understanding of the process technology for the respective application. The knowledge of droplet generation and droplet movement in a gas stream is essential for the optimal design of a droplet separator. For more than 100 years we have been dealing with the recognition, measurement and definition of droplets. It is not without reason that Lechler nozzles and Lechler droplet separators have become indispensable in process engineering and on ships.
Each plant requires a specific design and construction of the droplet separator. The design, construction and selection of Lechler droplet separator profiles is based entirely on your requirements, specifications and drawings. That is why we do not offer standard solutions, but put together individually the systems suitable for you.
In order to guarantee a flawless functional sequence, the materials used must be matched to the influencing variables of the individual system. For this reason Lechler offers a wide range of materials - also as stock goods.
Depending on the direction of flow, Lechler high-performance separators are divided into models for horizontal and vertical inflow. The choice of the flow direction depends on the process engineering and the design. Lechler offers you a suitable solution for all installation situations.
