A review is presented of the selection, design and operation of steam-water separation equipment. The criteria for choosing a separation system are first discussed and typical applications are described. Then, each of the major types of separator (gravity separators, drop inertia separators and cyclone separators) are reviewed in detail and the principal problems in design and operation for each respective type presented. Finally, procedures for testing separators are reviewed and overall conclusions drawn.
