AbstractA gas-liquid separator wherein a helical passageway is defined between an outer cylinder and an inner cylinder in such a way that a working fluid with entrained bubbles may be forced to flow tangentially into the helical passage and swirl therethrough. The entrained bubbles are separated from the liquid through centrifugal force produced by the swirling or vortical flow through the helical passageway and trapped or collected inside the inner cylinder, from which they are discharged to the exterior.
