Fluid separator apparatus and method
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.
