Solid contents from a reactor in the plant is being carryover to the condensers of the vacuum system and clogs the tubes of the condensers. To avoid this problem, we are planning to install a strainer or a cyclone separator in the pipeline to collect the solid debris. Which is better? A strainer or a cyclone separator?

In my opinion cyclone would be a better option.
Because if we install strainer and solids cover a surface of strainer then it will restrict the flow in pipeline and due that back pressure will develop and there are chances of vaccum break in column.

Is there foaming issues?


Is the load fill in RX too high?  I.e., not enough disengaging space?


If so, fix these issues first.
