Mist eliminators of the CVR and CHR series are so-called vane type mist eliminators, often also called chevron mist eliminators. In this type of mist eliminators, the droplet loaded gas stream is deflected in the flow channels between the vanes by the profile shape. By centrifugal forces the droplets splash onto the walls of the profiles and are deposited there. Here they form a liquid film. Depending on the version of the mist eliminators the separated liquid is discharged by gravity, either against the gas flow (vertical arrangement), or crossing the gas flow (horizontal arrangement). The profile geometry and surface, as well as the design of the separator system are of crucial importance for the drainage capacity of the profiles and thus the allowable gas - flow velocity. Furthermore, the profile geometry has decisive influence on the pressure loss of the entire mist eliminator system.
