Droplet separators for charge air cooler

The intake air for the combustion process (combustion air) in a tropical climate produces up to 200 tons of condensed water per day. The amount of condensed water after the purge air cooler increases dramatically due to the continuous increase in mean effective pressure and consequently the increase in purge air pressure.

The penetration of water into the combustion chamber is one of the main risk factors for:

  •     Problems with piston running
  •     Damage to the piston rings
  •     Seizure between the sliding surfaces
  •     Damage to surfaces
  •     Severe mechanical damage to important parts

Condensation of water cannot be avoided in areas of high humidity. Lechler droplet separators are used to separate the liquid.

Droplet separators for horizontal gas flow

In vane-type separators for horizontal gas flow, the separation vanes are arranged vertically to the gas flow so that the liquid runs down the baffles due to gravity. The creation of flow-calmed zones allows the liquid film to specifically drain in these areas without renewed contact with the gas flow.
