26. What is The Structure, Function, and Working Principle of The Gas-Water Separator?

The structure of the gas-water separator:
1. Cyclone Blades; 2. Water Storage Cup; 3. Water Deflector Plate; 4. Filter Element; 5. Manual Drain Valve.

The function of the gas-water separator is to filter out dust and impurities from the air, and to separate moisture from the air.

The working principle of the gas-water separator:
Compressed air enters through the inlet and is introduced to the cyclone blade. There are many small gaps on the cyclone blade, forcing the air to rotate strongly along the tangential direction, causing impurities mixed in the air to obtain greater centrifugal force. Water droplets, oil droplets, and dust separated from the air are directed along the inner wall of the water storage cup, collecting at the bottom of the cup, and are regularly discharged from the drain valve. The air that has undergone centrifugal rotation further undergoes filtration through the filter element before exiting through the outlet. The water deflector plate is set to prevent the sewage in the cup from being rolled up and damaging the filtering effect of the filter element.
