PHASE SEPARATION
PHASE SEPARATIONGases and liquids may be intentionally contacted as in absorption and distillation, or a mixture of phases may occur unintentionally as in vapor condensation from inadvertent cooling or liquid entrainment from a film. Regardless of the origin, it is usually desirable or necessary to separate gas–liquid dispersions. Natural separation of the liquid and gas phases occurs due to density differences; however, natural separation is generally inadequate because the process is slow and the location of the separation is uncontrolled. Separation processes are used to accelerate the natural phase separation and to control the location of the phases. Technology for phase separation has changed little in recent years; the challenge remains the correct selection and application of the existing t…
