The introduction of Kimre patented high-performance, interlaced mesh structure revolutionized the technology of process fluid separation and air pollution control.
This unique, innovative concept is far superior to the usual tower packing, chevrons, and mesh pads used for mass and heat transfer, particulate removal and mist elimination.
As a result, industries around the world have increased production, reduced energy and maintenance costs, and reduced emissions to comply with ever more stringent air and water pollution control standards.
The Kimre interlaced mesh structure is simple, yet surprisingly effective. The basic structure of the mesh forms a ladder-like arrangement of thermoplastic filaments, forming double-V systems that intersect each other at right angles.
Our engineered mesh construction has a large surface area and void space. The choice of filament diameter and the physical arrangement of mesh layers optimize the effectiveness and range of solid or liquid particle removal. A variety of thermoplastic filament materials allows for continuous service from -320° F to 400° F (-195° C to 204° C).
The thermoplastic media eliminates problems associated with corrosion, contamination, and erosion. The lightweight material is flexible, offers exact fit and is easy to install, remove, and maintain.
Kimre offers a range of products, all based on its unique media that effectively removes solid and liquid particles below one micron while draining large volumes of liquid. Kimre products are so effective they make traditional tower packing and metal pads obsolete.

KIMRE Technology improves:
Kimre, Inc. began offering air pollution control products to the chemical processing industry in the early 1970's in order to improve the performance of existing, outdated technology. The engineering expertise used to design the unique patented structure offered by Kimre has grown into an extensive knowledge base of the requirements of all sectors of the chemical processing industry in regards to air pollution control and process optimization. Kimre is dedicated to nurturing an organization rich in practical technical experience; the majority of Kimre's professional staff has a background in Chemical Engineering with masters degrees.
Kimre has grown into an important part of the world community by offering innovative, cost effective solutions in diverse applications in air pollution control, gas cleaning functions, and liquid cleaning functions. Kimre's main sales headquarters and manufacturing plant are located in Miami, Florida. Kimre's European customers are serviced through Kimre Europe out of Belgium through a sales office and second manufacturing site. In addition many of our Asian-Pacific customers are serviced through distributors experienced in the final processing and fabrication stages of our products.
If you are interested in working with a local representative, Kimre is happy to refer you to one of our local experts. Kimre works with independent manufacturers' representatives in South America, Canada, Mexico, the United States, South Africa, Europe, Japan, Korea, and Australia. In addition Kimre has many contacts with original equipment manufacturers around the world that will work with you in the design and installation of entire processes or individual pieces of equipment.
Since Kimre supplies products and technology for air pollution control, but does not supply complete systems, we are able to work with any of the scrubber manufacturers or engineering companies to utilize our technology to the best advantage. Most of the manufacturers of wet scrubbing equipment in the United States, Europe, and Canada use our products. Most of the Fortune 500 companies have installations of equipment with our technology and essentially all of North American chemical companies use our products.
AEROSEP - Multi-Stage Aerosol Separation Systems
Aerosols are suspended liquid or solid particles ranging in diameter from the submicron range to the 10 to 20µm size. Kimre offers the AEROSEP Multi-Stage Aerosol Separation System to collect submicron particulates which are hygroscopic using the principles of condensation scrubbing.
KON-TANE - Tower Packing
Tower Packing is usually thought of as a mass of inert solid shapes dumped in a cylindrical column for the purpose of providing greater surface area for the gas and liquid in a wet scrubber to make contact. Structured tower packing is thought of in much the same manner, a series of stages are installed in a vertical tower to provide maximum surface area for the gas and liquid to make contact. However, most designers tend to overlook the benefits of an ...
For more than 30 years, Kimre product engineers and application specialists have been solving process gas stream and emission problems in plants around the world. This experience results in a superior understanding of gas and vapor stream separation and mass and heat transfer. We have a special insight into the effects of these dynamics on system energy consumption and separation effectiveness.
