Halton’s DSA high-efficiency droplet separators with heated vanes keep air intakes clear during cold conditions.
The actual surface temperature of the heated DSA depends on many variables such as size of the separator, wind circumstances, face velocity, air temperature and relative humidity. Electrical heating capacities vary between 2,5kW/m2 – 3,7kW/m2, depending on these conditions. The cable heating does not prevent icing in the most severe conditions but it will help defrost the ice when the icing conditions have passed.
When intake air is crucial during extreme icing conditions, the Halton ECS (Extreme Conditions Solution) keeps the air intake open. The ECS is available as an option.
