Flash evaporator and liquid-vapor separator are the simplest separation equipment used in chemical industry. Liquid-vapor separators are only used for phase separation, whereas flash evaporators allow for a partial or total component separation.
A correct design and sizing of such a separator is required to obtain an optimal separation.
Liquid-vapor separators use gravity to isolate the vapor from the liquid. A demister can be added to reduce the overall size of the separator and increase the separation efficiency.
A flash evaporator works on the same principle, but instead of a two-phase feed, a pressurized single-phase superheated liquid feed is flashed inside the separator, generating the two phase with a different composition each.
With more than 70 years of experience, Labbe masters all steps in manufacturing of flash evaporator and liquid/vapor separator. This, from sizing to the construction, without subcontracting, for all types of equipments:
With its factory adjacent to the design office and with a stock of over 1000 tons of materials, Labbe offers an unmatched manufacturing time from the initial request to the delivery, with state-of-the-art quality control.
Accurate demister characteristics and flows analysis are used to design the flash evaporator or liquid-vapor separator.
The feed inlets and demister are chosen from Labbe wide range of internals to obtain the best performances/size ratio and separation efficiency.
Labbe Process Equipment provides all the internals associated:
