This is a merging of two Wikipedia articles that I created

I created both the "Souders-Brown equation" and the "Vapor-liquid separator" articles on the Wikipedia. Well over 95% of the content in those two articles was written by me. I also created the image used in both of those articles.

I combined the two articles into one article (because there was a good deal of overlap between the two articles) to create this CZ article Souders-Brown equation. - Milton Beychok 22:54, 10 February 2008 (CST)

Cyclone separator

A cyclone separator is sometimes in the same way, e.g., as a flash separator. [1] I wonder if it might be appropriate to mention this competing technology in this article? Best wishes, Walter Siegmund 09:19, 11 February 2008 (CST)

Walter, I apologise for not responding sooner. Yes, a gas-liquid cyclone can be used as a flash separator. However, to the best of my knowledge , the Souders-Brown equation is not used in the design of cyclones and this article is about that equation. Perhaps, what we need is another article about gas-liquid cyclones. Would you be willing to undertake writing such an article? Best regards, - Milton Beychok 21:10, 17 February 2008 (CST)
Milton, you are right, of course. It doesn't appear that Cyclone separator exists. I'd be happy to help on such an article, but I don't have the background to write one without extensive research. Thank you for your response. Best wishes, Walter Siegmund 17:39, 9 March 2008 (CDT)
