Title
(EN) ELECTRO-COALESCER CELL WITH TURBULANCE-INDUCING SHAPE FOR MAXIMIZED PERFORMANCE
(FR) CELLULE ÉLECTRO-COALESCEUR AYANT UNE FORME INDUISANT UNE TURBULENCE POUR UNE PERFORMANCE MAXIMISÉE
Abstract
(EN)
The electro-coalescer includes: a fluid inlet; a fluid outlet; a power source; and one or more pipes fluidly connecting the inlet and the outlet, each pipe having an electrode disposed therethrough. The electrodes are coupled to the power source. The pipes are configured to connect to an electrical ground and an electric field is generated between the electrode and the pipe through which it is disposed. An internal surface of each of the one or more pipes is configured to induce turbulence in a fluid flowing through the pipes.
(FR)
L'électro-coalesceur comprend : une entrée de fluide; une sortie de fluide; une source d'alimentation; et un ou plusieurs tuyaux reliant fluidiquement l'entrée et la sortie, chaque tuyau ayant une électrode disposée à travers celui-ci. Les électrodes sont couplées à la source d'alimentation. Les tuyaux sont configurés pour se connecter à une mise électrique à la terre et un champ électrique est généré entre l'électrode et le tuyau à travers lequel il est disposé. Une surface interne de chacun du ou des tuyaux est configurée pour induire une turbulence dans un fluide s'écoulant à travers les tuyaux.
