Mist Eliminators

Mist eliminators are installed at the top of the column, or in combination with a collecting tray from one packed bed to another. They separate liquid particles from the gas and minimize entrainment of liquid by the effluent gas flow out of the column or from one packing to another.

There are mainly two types of mist eliminators available: wire-mesh demisters and vane-type separators. In addition, non-irrigated packed bed stages can also work as mist eliminators.
