Brink Fiber Bed Mist Eliminators remove liquid or soluble solid mists from gas streams. They collect the very-difficult-to-remove, submicron-size mist particles that cause visible emissions (opacity). On plant stacks, Brink Mist Eliminators are used for pollution control. Within processes, they help protect equipment and prevent product contamination.
All Mist Eliminators operate in a similar manner. Gases containing mist particles are directed horizontally through a bed of fibers. Particles collect on individual fibers of the bed by the mechanism of impaction, interception and Brownian diffusion, then coalesce to form liquid films which are moved through the bed by the gas flow. The collected liquid then drains off the downstream face of the bed by gravity. Brink Mist Eliminators are typically installed in a vessel from which the collected liquids are continuously drained.
The eliminators come in a variety of styles and sizes. With Brownian diffusion types, collection efficiencies on submicron particles can be designed to exceed 99.5 percent.
