LIQUI-NOMIX® Liquid/Liquid Coalescers
Kimre’s LIQUI-NOMIX® Liquid/Liquid Coalescers provide polishing of liquid streams to remove contaminant liquids to meet any industry standards. Water quality levels below 2 ppm can be easily achieved.
LIQUI-NOMIX® is used as a final polishing element by many of the industries’ leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of oil/water separators.
The filament structure of the LIQUI-NOMIX® Coalescers creates a tortuous path for the liquid flow, which creates a high surface area for collection of the contaminant liquid. LIQUI-NOMIX® Coalescers are provided in thermoplastics including polypropylene, which is oleophilic. Therefore, the collection of oily contaminants in water is enhanced. Finely dispersed droplets that are too small to be separated by simple gravitational settling are collected by the fibers of LIQUI-NOMIX®. These droplets coalesce and collect into large droplets, which can then rise to the top of the coalescer and can be easily skimmed away from the aqueous phase.
Contrary to typical polyurethane foam coalescers, LIQUI-NOMIX® Coalescers utilize composite designs that allow long-term operation and low maintenance. This design incorporates layers of varying fiber diameters from the largest available in the industry to the finest. The large fiber diameter layers provide resistance to fouling by solids and sludge and protect the finer layers downstream. The finer layers are able to collect the droplets that are too fine to be removed by gravity separation. Furthermore, LIQUI-NOMIX®’s three-dimensional structure allows for easy cleaning and re-use, virtually eliminating the replacement costs of other polyurethane coalescers.
