Eaton DTL Dry Separators have been designed for applications with a higher than normal load of entrained solids and are available in three different configurations. A straight-through flow connection, a vertical down-flow inlet and a horizontal outlet, and a compact, straight-through flow design.

  • Sizes from 2″ to 16″
  • For high solid loadings applications
  • Fabricated carbon or stainless steel construction
  • Flanged drain
  • Low pressure drop
  • No moving parts to wear out, no required maintenance
  • Exclusive Vortex Containment Plate (VCP) System


  • Larger sizes

Eaton DTL Dry Separators – Conical-Shaped Sump

In order to handle the large amount of solids, these separators feature a conical-shaped sump that better promotes the collection of removed solids at the drain port. The separated material collecting at the drain port must be removed before it fills the sump area. Since automatic drain traps are not suitable for draining solid materials, use of a rotary valve is recommended for this purpose. This type of valve will allow the solid material to be removed while releasing a minimum amount of air, gas, or steam from the system.

Eaton DTL Dry Separators are centrifugal separators that cause the gas stream to enter a controlled centrifugal flow. This action forces the entrained liquids and solids to the outer wall. The exclusive Eaton Vortex Containment Plate (VCP) system shields these separated particles and liquid droplets from the vortex action within the separator and directs them toward the drain sump. The exit stream is drawn from the clean and dry center of the separator. The VCP prevents re-entrainment of the removed liquids and solids and assures a clean and dry gas stream at the separator outlet.

Vortex Containment Plate

Moisture laden gas enters the inlet of the separator where it is deflected by Eaton’s unique Cenpellar™ into a centrifugal motion. The entrained solids and moisture droplets are separated out by a reduction in velocity. Separated liquid and solids fall into the separators integral drain trap where Eaton’s exclusive Vortex Containment Plate (VCP) ensures that they cannot be re-entrained. The VCP is constructed with a series of carefully placed rings and plates that shield the separated liquid from the vortex action within the separator to prevent re-entrainment . The VCP also helps direct the liquid to the drain trap while at the same time moves the clean, dry gas to the separator outlet. With Eaton’s exclusive VCP the need for expensive, delicate baffles that are used in ordinary separators is eliminated.

Maintenance and Spare Parts

Eaton separators have no moving parts. All components are either bolted or welded into place. Therefore parts lists are not available. The separators are bolted, threaded, or welded into the lines. They are self-cleaning, and do not need lubrication or maintenance. For this reason, lubricating, operating and maintenance manuals are not available.
