Liquid Carryover: Prevention and Mitigation of Its Damaging Effects

Separation of a liquid mass fraction form vapor flow has been a topic of many articles and discussions. We wish to present some of the history behind the devolvement of the current methodology utilized today as well as additional insight into the separation mechanisms involved. A greater understanding of the physics involved, the application operational parameters, and the effects of vessel orientation can prevent the phenomenon of liquid carryover. Liquid carryover can exist as a mist or a liquid when escaping the separation mechanisms.
