Air & Steam Separators
To improve the operating efficiency of pneumatic equipment, Kadant Johnson air separators eliminate 99% of entrained contaminants including moisture, pipe scale, dirt and oil. When used on steam service, Kadant Johnson separators provide cleaner, drier steam to heat exchangers, steam turbines, and other processing equipment that requires clean dry steam.
Kadant integrates the three separating functions of abrupt direction change, filtration and expansion to remove contaminants from the air or steam. When the vapor enters the separator, it is forced to change directions many times by negotiating several layers of course mesh wire screen. Immediately following the direction change and filtration, the air or steam enters the expansion chamber. Together these functions effectively isolate and capture 99% of the precipitate. Foreign particles settle at the bottom of the separator and then removed.
