Anderson® - Centrifugal Separators

ANDERSON® SEPARATOR was founded in 1855 by a 25-year-old boilermaker named Valerius D. Anderson. He designed a very efficient steam cleaning and purification process for steam boilers. This centrifugal separator quickly became the industry standard for the removal of solids and liquids from steam. The new units quickly found applications in many other industries ranging from food processing to steel making. As Anderson Separator grew, so did its line of separation equipment. Anderson Separator became part of the Clark-Reliance family in the late 1980s and has continued to grow its business in the compressed air, steam, gas and power generation industries.

Principal of Operation

The Anderson Hi-eF™ Centrifugal Separators operate on a patented two-stage principle of separation that employs carefully controlled flow guiding the entrainment laden vapor through a series of vanes and baffles.  Each component of the separating element is designed to obtain maximum separating efficiency.  Briefly, in the first stage of the separation, impingement against a baffle removes the larger droplets of entrainment. In the second stage of separation, the separator removes the fine mist entrainment by utilizing centrifugal scrubbing action through a uniquely designed contact element.  In each stage, the gas medium and the separated liquid are carefully and continuously guided for maximum efficiency.  The separators are designed to handle large volume flow of a broad range of fluids.  Self-cleaning and engineered without filters or moving parts, the separators are free from maintenance and repair.
