Headman is a manufacturer that specializes in water separators, which separate water from water, resulting in a higher purity of the desired substance. Our products are used in the petroleum, chemical and food industries to remove unwanted water. However, a common problem we encounter during long-term use is that water often accumulates in the separator, which may cause damage to the instrument if it is not removed according to the correct process. So today we introduce the method of removing water from the separator.



Methods for removing accumulated water

1. Close the inlet valve

Before proceeding with the removal of water from the separator, it is first necessary to close the inlet valve to prevent new water from entering the separator and affecting subsequent removal operations.


2. Open the drain valve

Separators are usually designed with a drain valve that can be opened to remove water that has accumulated in the separator. Before opening the drain valve, make sure that the drainage system is clear to ensure that the water can be discharged smoothly.


3. Drainage

Connect the drain line to the drain port of the separator and make sure the drainage system is clear. When the drain valve is opened, the water in the separator will flow out along the drain pipe until the water in the separator is completely removed.


4. Checking the drain port

After draining is complete, close the drain valve and check the drain opening for residual water droplets. Make sure the drain port is dry so that subsequent operation and use is not affected.


5. Regular Maintenance

In order to ensure the normal operation of the separator, it is recommended to carry out regular maintenance and cleaning of the separator, including the inspection and cleaning of the drainage system and the drain valve.



The moisture accumulated in the separator will affect the normal operation of the equipment, so it needs to be removed in time. Through the above methods, the moisture in the separator can be effectively dealt with to ensure the normal operation of the equipment and the use of the effect.
