Coalescing & demisting

Coalescing and demisting
These separation processes remove droplets from a stream of liquid (coalescing) or gas (demisting). The fine droplets merge in the Bekipor® medium to form larger droplets which can be drained and separated from the main stream. Examples include the separation of oil from water, emulsion breaking of chemicals, and crankcase ventilation.
Bekipor® is an excellent choice for coalescing and demisting filters. Its unique structure leads to efficient collection and drainage of droplets, creating low pressure drops.

It has a long lifespan even under constant exposure to corrosive environments and high temperatures.

Specific benefits over competing products such as glass fiber, PEEK, and PTFE fiber media are the absence of binders, good recyclability, superior corrosion resistance, drainage capability, and higher temperature resistance.

Excellent, reliable and consistent separation performance

Consisting of high-quality stainless steel, Bekipor® non-woven media have a long lifespan even under constant exposure to low and high pH values, chemicals and fluctuating temperatures.

Saves energy thanks to very low pressure drops

Bekipor® WB features a high mechanical stability and has a porosity of more than 98%. This enables good droplet growth and drainage, leading to very low pressure drops.

Easily recyclable

Metal fibers actively contribute to the circular economy, much more so than other fiber solutions.

Compact design for a smaller footprint

Due to the high efficiency and low pressure drop, the design of your filtration system can be optimized, and its footprint minimized.
