  • Microbial reduction efficiencies of filtration, electrostatic polarization, and UV components of a Germicidal Air Cleaning System

    Abstract: This study determined the effectiveness of components of a germicidal air-cleaning system involving filtration, electrostatic polarization, and UV light on the reduction of airborne bacteria and molds. The filter alone, filter and electrostatic polarization combined, and the filter, electrostatic polarization, and UV light were found to be effective (P < 0.05) in reducing a given ...

  • Monitoring Air Makes Sense

    Did you know that air filters were originally put in air handling systems to protect the life of the equipment, not human life? And that it is not uncommon for air filters to get changed less frequently to save on maintenance costs? Monitoring input from sensors can tell operators when filters and media need changing. We have required food labels that list all ingredients. Why not electronic ...

  • OPERATION OF DUCT PRODUCTION LINE

    The normal operation of the duct production line is inseparable from the normal operation of the machine. Therefore, in order to ensure the normal operation of the machine and daily production of the air pipe does not appear stops caused by faults, it is necessary to carry out maintenance of the duct production line. 1. The material requirements of the flexible pipe of the air duct ...

  • 4 Operations every metal fabricator should contain with an industrial air filtration system

    Shops that make fabricated metal products, do fabricated plate work, or engage in fabricated structural metal manufacturing cut, grind, weld, and finish metal. These operations release particulates and fumes into the shop environment. Containing them with an industrial air filtration system can ensure compliance with environmental regulations, benefit employee health, and reduce downtime. Below ...

  • Case study - Daphne utilities water reclamation facility

    With significant TSS and BOD reductions from their Salsnes Filter system, Daphne Utilities has restored previously lost plant capacity. More than that, loading reductions have cut back aerator maintenance and lowered energy consumption of blowers. Project Background Daphne Utilities, situated on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay in Alabama, provides water, sewer and natural ...

  • Chemical Air Pollution in the Clinical Research Environment

    There has been a revolution in awareness of chemical air pollution in research laboratories. I could tell you several 'horror stories' of casual exposure to mercury vapour, benzene and chromic acid (the ultimate glassware cleaning agent) among innocent biomedical PhD students (including myself) in the 1970s. But researchers in hospitals, and other laboratories can never afford to be complacent ...

  • Monroe`s Multi Stage Oil Mist Collector solves synthetic fiber plant`s oil mist problems

    Challenge A synthetic fiber plant's manufacturing operations produced a large amount of oil mist. The oil mist consisted of heavy oil droplets, smoke, and sub-micron vapors. The manufacturer required the air to be cleaned of the oil mist and other pollutants before discharge into the atmosphere. Solution The plant examined various types of oil mist ...

  • Advantages of cleaning without a venturi in baghouse collectors

    ABSTRACT: Background The cleaning cycle is the most important part of the dust collector because it controls efficiency and media life. In order to clean a row of bags in a reverse pulse jet baghouse first the flow of filtered air must be momentarily stopped and then back flushed or “induce” air to knock the dust cake off the outside of the filter media. A venturi at the top of the ...
