By comparing the separation efficiency with and without the coalescing pump included in the process, his investigations have shown that the pump increases the separation efficiency of a downstream hydrocyclone by reducing the volume fraction of droplets which would otherwise be too small to be separated. Furthermore, his investigations show that the pumping pressure can be adjusted continuously to maximize the improvement.
Researcher and Ph.D. Candidate, Rune Husveg, will be presenting a part of his Ph.D. project at the 2017 ADIPEC. In his Ph.D. project, Rune is designing a self-optimizing control system for the coalescing pump. This system maximizes the separation efficiency of downstream separation equipment by optimizing the coalescing effect of the pump.
We hope to see you there!
