Allen, C. (1987). IPC No. U.S.Fluid separator apparatus and method (Patent No. 4636315.)


A fluid distributor comprises a distributor body having a fluid port at one face and a distribution surface at the opposite face, with the distribution surface having a plurality of uniformly spaced distribution openings. Fluid passages defined by channels and bores in the distributor body provide fluid communication between the fluid port and the distribution openings such that there is substantially equal fluid flow to each distribution opening. A method of fluid distribution particularly adapted for chromatography applications is also disclosed.
