ist elimination or demisting can be defined as the mechanical
The wire mist eliminators, commonly referred to as knitted mesh mist
eliminators, collect droplets by the inertial impaction and interception
mechanisms of collection. The wire mesh separators are commonly used to
collect droplets above 5 microns in diameter. However, when the separation
of droplets in the 1-3 µm is required, these wire mist eliminators
are largely ineffective because of the meshs random structure, irregular
density, and coarse fiber diameters.
Kimre developed a structured mesh to combat the weaknesses of the wire mesh already on the market. The material has been described as ladder-like or honeycomb-like and is comprised of three-dimensionally interlocked plastic monofilaments. Since 93% of the fibers are perpendicular to the gas flow, the pressure loss through the media is dramatically lower for the same level of efficiency as a traditional knitted mesh mist eliminator. Because of Kimres unique structure, we are able to produce our media in the widest range of fiber diameters in the industry. This allows Kimres engineers to design for the highest level of performance at any particle or mist size.
Features and benefits of B-GON® Mist Eliminators
Description of B-GON®
Kimre offers custom designed mist eliminators for collection of droplets
and particulates above 0.8 microns in diameter. Several standard pad designs
are available for routine installations, but thousands of pad combinations
are available for unique situations. The following graph displays the
collection efficiency and clean operating pressure drop of some standard
pad designs operating in an air/water environment under ambient conditions.
