Word forms: (regular plural) electrotreaters
(Chemical Engineering: Operations, Liquid-liquid operations)
The main types of electrotreater used for liquid-liquid operations are electrostatic coalescers and electrostatic
separators. Electrotreaters are mostly liquid-liquid separators in which the separation process is enhanced by
the application of an electric field. An electrotreater is a type of coalescer in which droplets are charged electrically to increase their
attraction to each other.
