Parallel plate interceptor diagram

The parallel plate interceptor (PPI) is the early form of a plate coalescer. The basic design of parallel plate interceptor is a series of plates installed parallel to the longitudinal axis of an API separator as shown in figure above. The plates form a “V” shape so that the oil sheet moves up the underside of the coalescing plate and to the sides. The sediments move towards the middle and down to the bottom.
