Selecting Vacuum Pumps for Degassing Liquids
Similar to distillation, degassing is one of the many separation processes such as distillation, drying, filtration, membrane separation, adsorption, crystallization, etc. that rely upon the differences in the physical properties of substances in a mixture. Degasification relies upon the differences in the solubility of a gas in a liquid with variations in temperature and pressure to provide a mechanism for separation. The solubility or miscibility of one fluid in another is normally considered a physical property if no chemical reaction occurs.
