1. ### Steam vs Fuly saturated air: Separation

And, if that is the case, it would also suggest to me that if you aim to increase the pressure of the saturated gas, you can achieve more condensation. But wouldn't increasing the pressure also cause an undesirable temperature rise - which means you would have to find a way of preventing a...
2. ### Steam vs Fuly saturated air: Separation

jambaugh, thanks for your help, I appreciate it. With reference to the exponential P vs T diagram here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vapour_pressure_of_water Is it right to say that at points above this line, condensation will occur, whereas superheated steam will result at points below...
3. ### Steam vs Fuly saturated air: Separation

For water separation purposes, what's the difference between steam and fully saturated air? I was looking at a certain product: http://www.nciweb.net/combinat.htm And I'm not sure if such a thing would be suitable for separating the water from a fully saturated air stream at about 60degC...
4. ### Venturi tube obeys ideal gas law?

The ideal gas law staes that pressure is inversely proportional to volume. Makes sense but I am confused by what happens in a venturi tube, where volume seems to decrease at the same time that pressure decreases also. I understand that dynamic pressure increases in the throat but what am I...
5. ### Separation of water from air at high temperature

Can a venturi scrubber be used to separate water particles from a hot air stream? I don't really know how these devices work but I know they can separate particles from gas.
6. ### Separation of water from air at high temperature

I'm just saying that by cooling down the hot saturated gas, more water will condense at a lower temperature. Oh and thanks for the beetle example, although i'm not sure that kind of recent material technology will be available to me in my problem!
7. ### Separation of water from air at high temperature

Hmm..thanks for the reply. If I'm interested in separating that water and re-using it in a loop (where at the outlet it will once again be a fully saturated gas), how do you think I could here use a desiccant/deliquescent material for the purpose of that separation? Hope I make sense.
8. ### Separation of water from air at high temperature

How might one try to separate water from air at high temperature (say, 75degC) - if the gas if fully saturated? I understand that you should try to cool it down first to do so, but other than putting it though a heat exchanger is there any other approach you can take? Thanks
