liquid mixtures must be settled and coalesced before they can
be separated. Gravity Settlers or decanters can be either horizontal
or vertical vessels designed to continuously settle, coalesce, and
withdraw settled liquids. Cyclones and centrifuges have also been
used for separating liquid/liquid mixtures by enhancing the settling
rate and reducing the separation time.

Description of LIQUI-NOMIX®
The self-supporting LIQUI-NOMIX® structure works well
in both clean and dirty services because of the large number of
fibers perpendicular to the flow, the high void space, and the variety
of monofilament diameters and materials of constructions available.
The styles of material most commonly used in this service range
in diameter from 8-mil to 37-mil (0.2 0.9 mm) and 94-97%
void space. Combinations of styles can be used together in single
stages to achieve particulate removal/filtration and fine polishing.
The composite feature of the LIQUI-NOMIX® material
allows for long term operation, low maintenance, and reusability.
Sludge and solids are easily cleaned from the material with cleaning
solutions or high-pressure washes. Therefore, replacement costs
of other types of coalescers are eliminated.
