What's New

Fiber Bed Filters
Kimre, Inc. offers a complete line of fiber bed filter mist collector systems. We design and fabricate fiber bed coalescing filters for use in a wide range of applications in various industries to reduce and eliminate liquid mist emissions. Available in standard or custom-designed configurations to fit new or exisiting systems in the field. Our fiber bed coalescing filters offer long filter life and simplified maintenance.

• High removal efficiency
• Long filter life - up to 10 years
• Custom designed filters for any vessel
• Filter re-pack on site or at Kimre's plant
• Increased surface area
• Smaller footprint
• Low operating costs
• Low maintaining costs
• Complete turn-key systems

Fiber bed filter mist collectors are used to trap, collect and remove liquids and soluble particulate suspended in a gas stream. They are also to collect insoluble solids.

Filters are typically constructed in annular cylindrical form with an outer and inner screen and the filter material placed between the two screens.

Mist laden gas passes in a horizontal direction perpendicular to one side of the fiber bed and cleaned gas exists from the opposite side. The particles are trapped and held by the fibers as they try to pass through the fiber bed. The collected particles coalesce on the filter surface and drain by gravity.

The filter units rest or are suspended from a tube sheet inside a closed tank. gas flow can be from outside the filter face to the inside or vice versa.

Cellular Mist and Drift Eliminators

Kimre mist eliminators are state of the art, durable, high efficiency and with cell design that will meet the most stringent mist removal specifications. Special features are included in the designs for Counterflow and Crossflow towers. Kimre mist eliminators provide ultra-low drift loss and are used in Cooling Tower, Evaporative Cooling, Turbine Intake Cooler, Scrubber and High Humidity Cooling systems.

  • Fabricated to meet span requirements up to 8ft (2.4m)
  • Reduces the net blockage of air due to additional support beams
  • Can be field cut for a tight fit
  • Designed so they nest or interlock with module next to them
  • Removes water through drainage channel

- Kimre mist eliminators utilize a series of sinusoidal-shaped corrugations bonded to mating sinusoidal structural waves to form closed cells that force the leaving airstream to make three distinct changes in direction. The drift droplets carried in the airstream, when forced to make changes in direction in each cell, create centrifugal forces on the drift droplets, forcing them to be captured by inertial impaction and direct interception. The high surface area of cellular eliminators and these unique design features, ensures state-of-the-art drift removal efficiency.
