Dürr Universal’s separator-silencers are used to remove liquid from gas flow vacuum systems using either liquid-sealed rotary positive blowers or liquid ring vacuum pumps. Separator-silencers may be required for both the inlet (vacuum) and the discharge (atmospheric) of a vacuum system. Only the most stringent acoustical environments require significant inlet silencing. An inlet separator provides corrosion protection for the vacuum pump by removing most, if not all, of the process liquid before it enters the vacuum pump. The vacuum pump or blower discharge is normally extremely noisy and requires a high-performance separator-silencer.
