The droplet eliminator consists of:
- a metal frame (zincked, stainless steel coated using low-carbon steel or plastic);
- a droplet eliminator plate;
- capacities for collecting moisture — a tray;
- systems for diverting water — a drainage system.
When passing through the air with moisture particles in a zig zag or wave motion, drops hit the surface of the plate at every turn, stick to it, connect to other ones, and end up reaching such a size and weight that they no longer can stick to the surface and flow down into the tray along the filter grooves.
Such types of droplet eliminators are used in irrigation cells of large central conditioners with an efficiency of 12,000-150,000 cfm.
