Mist eliminator pads and proper engineering go hand in hand when it comes to trapping airborne particles and maintaining an optimally functioning system. Particulate matter is the sum of all solid and liquid particles suspended in air, many of which are hazardous. Generally, these are divided into coarse and fine particles. Each has their own definition for measurement. They can be further classified as organic or inorganic in their origin. Some commonly would be known as dust, pollen, soot, smoke, and liquid droplets. They will vary in size and composition. Fine particles would be aerosols and vapors. Larger particles would be industrial dust from agricultural processes, uncovered soil, unpaved roads or mining operations. Everyday living such as traffic causes wear and tear on roads, producing particulate matter that we know as dust. Other common larger particulates are sea salt, pollen, mold and insect bodies.
Federally, it is a requirement by EPA for industries that create pollution to eliminate or significantly reduce hazardous substances into the environment.
At Kimre™, our experienced application specialist are advanced in designing mist eliminator pads and working with solvents that are used to further breakdown solutes or substance, also known as particulates.
When properly engineered and installed, mist eliminator pads play a key role in the removal of entrained droplets or particles in the gas or vapor stream. Mist eliminator pads and filters are a cost-effective solution to reducing solvent losses and harmful emissions. This will extend equipment life and lessen maintenance cycles and down time. Once a determination of the mechanism by which the particulate matter is generated, our experienced engineers will design and manufacture a mist eliminator pad that will exceed your company’s expectations. Contact us today for a full range of mist elimination, from sub-micron droplet control using Fiber Bed Filters through 2 to 5 microns with our B-GON® Mist Eliminators up to 10 microns and above.
