Sub-Micron Particulate Collection
erosols are suspended liquid or solid particles ranging in diameter from the submicron range to the 10 to 20µm size. Kimre offers the AEROSEP® Multi-Stage Aerosol Separation System to collect submicron particulates which are hygroscopic using the principles of condensation scrubbing. Aerosols as small as 0.2 microns in diameter pass through gas conditioning stages and particle growth stage within the AEROSEP® system before being collected by a final entrainment separator stage. The typical AEROSEP® system has four stages:
Features and benefits of AEROSEP®
The AEROSEP® System has been compared to wet electrostatic
precipitators and ionized wet scrubbers by outside engineering firms and
has been found to operate with similar energy consumption to an ESP. However,
the initial capital expenditure for the AEROSEP® is dramatically lower,
making it an attractive alternative to these two pieces of equipment.
