This app provides the optimum two-phase separator design for any given process conditions. All well-known classic methods, i.e. GPSA, York Demister, Theoretical, as well as the modern realistic CFD-based approach are included, and their produced results can be compared against each other. The CFD-based approach was presented as a PhD thesis in 2010 by the developer of this app. Note, the popular classic methods are too conservative and usually specify extremely oversized and expensive separators. The CFD-based approach, on the other hand, will confidently propose more economical separators that can successfully accomplish the separation task. So, this app offers a direct tangible benefit for industrial design projects. For background information, please refer to the following literature:
