Title: Device for separating liquid particles from a gas stream

Abstract: A device for separating liquid particles from a gas stream including a filter insert (8, 9, 11) placed in a gas stream (3) generated by an external pressure difference. Liquid particles remain on the outer surface of the filter insert (8, 9, 11) on the raw gas side and form droplets which can flow down into a collecting chamber (6). The device is a compact separating module (1) with several stages, a cyclone (5), a filter insert (8, 9, 11) and a pressure regulating valve (12).
