Decanters are used for liquid-liquid separation when there is a sufficient difference in density between liquids for the droplets to settle. Decanter sizing calculator (DSC) is a software that is built to size horizontal and vertical decanters. The software has the ability to do multiple cases as well as accepting the input in different units of measurement. The output can also be customised to show the results in different units. Results can be exported or printed as per user preference.
Decanter sizing calculator main features
- Perform sizing calculations for horizontal and vertical decanters
- Flexible calculation settings to allow user to adjust the design assumptions
- Different input and output units for calculations
- Save and load case files
- List all calculation assumptions used.
- The software will also determine dispersed phase and continuous phase from user input.
- Various calculations are produced,
For vertical vessels; vessel diameter, vessel height, feed interface height, light liquid height, heavy liquid height, feed inlet diameter, dispersion band length, residence time of droplets in dispersion band, velocity and settling velocity for dispersed phase, volumetric flow rates, interface area, entrained droplet diameter
For horizontal vessels; vessel diameter, vessel length, feed interface height, light liquid height, heavy liquid height, feed inlet diameter, dispersion band height, residence time of droplets in dispersion band, velocity and settling velocity for dispersed phase, volumetric flow rates, interface area, interface width, entrained droplet diameter, turbulence level checks for dispersed and continuous phases.
- Print, export, copy produced results summary
