Anderson Separator Combination Separator-Trap Series HSW

Anderson Separator's full line of HSW in-line horizontal combination separator-traps are a cost effective choice to remove moisture or condensate from compressed air, steam, and gas with a reduced potential of re-entrainment.   Fabricated at our fully automated machining center, Anderson's line of combination separator-traps  are available from 1/2" through 3" sizes off the shelf.

Operation

The process gas enters the vessel through the inlet connection and is directed through Anderson's engineered Hi-eF TM centrifugal separation element. Centrifugal force throws the entrained liquid to the walls of the unit where it drains to the bottom reservoir below the baffle plate. 

The level of the reservoir is automatically controlled by the float trap mechanism, purging the vessel of unwanted condensate with no pressure drop to the system. Anderson's exclusive optional stainless steel mesh screen assembly protects the trap function and helps prevent the drain orifice from obstructions, thus offering maximum protection from costly malfunctions such as catastrophic carry over or excessive gas/steam loss in the purge cycle.

The scrubbed gas passes up through the outlet connection, completely free (99%) of entrained particulate 10 microns and larger, with minimum pressure drop across the unit.

 
Capacity

Anderson's HSW series of separator-traps have been tested in our flow lab to determine separation efficiencies. The results show that the entrainment removal efficiency to be consistently over 99% through the entire flow velocity range. The fluid discharge capacities over all sizes at various differential  (Pin - Pout) pressure ranges are: (Note: data @ SG=1.0)

Differential Pressure (PSIG) 80 125 150 300    
Gallons per Minute 3.1 1.9 1.4 1.3    
Orifice Diameter (in.) .156 .109 .093 .078    
 
Applications

Anderson's HSW series of separator-traps are ideal for piping, process, and mechanical engineers that wish to maintain completely clean and dry air, gas and steam within their process lines. Refining, chemical, power, and gas pipeline industries are just a few areas of Anderson's successful applications. Air compressor, aftercooler, and exchanger OEMs specify this series when economical reliability in harsh operating service is desired.
