  • Chemical Industry: Wet Scrubbing HCL & SiCl4 Fumes Case Study

    This two-stage scrubbing system utilizes a jet venturi scrubber in conjunction with a counter current packed tower including entrainment mist eliminator. It was designed to eliminate the HCl (hydrochloric acid) fumes generated when SiC14 (silicon tetrachloride) comes in contact with moisture during processing operations at a zirconium processing tank farm, and also the remaining small amount of ...

  • A Short FAQ On Oil Mist Collectors

    Oil mist collectors, much like wet dust collectors and cyclone dust collectors, are used in a huge variety of industrial grinding, cutting, induction hardening, induction heating, and other industrial applications — but information about these commonplace air cleaning tools is few and far between. Here’s a short FAQ for those who ...

  • Oil mist eliminator solves oil/smoke problem

    Workers in a component manufacturing division of and automotive company complained of an oil mist/smoke problem. The application involved a battery of 10 machines used in finish grinding and lapping valve lifters that use mineral seal oil as cutting fluid. Even though the oil mist was invisible, oil would condense on a cold glass held over an operating machines, indicating some of the ...

  • An Economical Solution to cooling tower drift

    In certain cases cooling tower drift (mist) can overwhelm conventional lower efficiency chevron mist eliminators. This paper explores an alternative strategy to control drift in those cases. The author uses a case history to illustrate conditions that can be expected to cause uncontrolled drift and to discuss a solution. The author acknowledges that the information presented is anecdotal, ...

  • How to: control process mist eliminators

    A structured-media mist eliminator is less prone to plugging than conventional knitted-mesh mist eliminators, achieves higher removal efficiencies per unit of pressure drop, and has lower energy consumption and operating costs. Many process air and gas stream problems involve mist carryover and mist eliminator plugging. This often results in reduced product yield, excessive energy usage, ...

  • Basics of Mist Elimination

    Mist eliminators have evolved over the years from packed bed types to knitted mesh mist collectors. Knitted mesh mist eliminators achieve much greater efficiency than the packed bed types where dumped packing is used as a collection device and impingement types where wave-like plates are used to collect mist. This presentation will discuss the basic concepts of mist elimination, whether the ...
