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, corrosion of plant equipment, shorter- than-expected equipment and catalyst life, shortened plant run times, and/or not meeting output capacity requirements.

Mist eliminator basics
Any time a liquid comes into intimate contact with a flowing gas – as happens in many manufacturing processes – the entrainment of liquid droplets into the gas stream generates a mist. This mist can result in process inefficiencies, product losses and equipment damage.
