The vacuum degasser is a high-efficiency in-line modele that removes dissolved gasses from HPLC solvents. Its unique design assure reliable continuous operation and the highest level of continuous performance available without the need for helium degassing. Up to five solvent lines may be degassed simultaneously by one unit. The extremely low internal volume of each teflon AF channel offers very quick equilibration and very short startup times compared with PTFE degassing channels which have the same degassing efficiency.

A vacuum is pulled on a stream of water, and the vacuum draws the dissolved gas out of solution, removing it from water. There are two basic systems available – tower and membrane. In a vacuum degasser tower, water flows by gravity down through a tower filled with packing as a vacuum is drawn on the tower. The packing in the tower has a very high surface area, disperses the water very effectively, thereby enhancing the removal of O2, CO2 and N2. Performance is further enhanced by using atomizing nozzles as the water enters the tower. In a membrane degasser, water flows across one side of a membrane surface while a vacuum is drawn on the other side. Both types of systems use steam jet eductors or liquid ring pumps to generate the vacuum required.


Vacuum degassing is practiced in the steel industry for several purposes. They are :

to remove hydrogen
to improve cleanliness by removing part of the oxygen
to produce steel of low carbon content ( < 0.03%)
to produce steels to close chemical composition ranges (including deoxidizers), and
to control pouring temperatures, especially for continuous casting operations.
