  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...
