Panta Vane™ Mist Eliminator consists of a series of specially profiled baffles that removes liquid droplets from vapor stream by the inertial impaction of the droplets on the baffles. The liquid droplets carry over with vapor which has been crossing vane zigzag do not intend to change direction, so collide to lates and forming larger droplets which trickle downward to the liquid in the bottom of separator drum.

Droplet removal is by inertial impaction. When the gas is forced to change direction negotiating narrow passages formed by the shape of the vanes, larger liquid droplets will tend to continue in a straight line and coalesce on the vane surface that blocks their path. Smaller droplets however will tend to follow the gas around the corner. The degree of removal of any droplet size can be calculated based on centrifugal forces and Stokes Law.In general droplet removal efficiency increases with:
