Mist eliminators are also called entrainment separators and demisters. It serves to remove 99 to 99.9 % of liquid droplets from the scrubber exit stream. They employ inertial impaction, centrifugal force, and even diffusion and interception capture mechanisms. Most mist eliminators are of either baffle or mesh design and employ either horizontal or vertical gas flow. The baffle-type may be either zigzag or slanted in design. The mesh-type eliminators are used for vertical gas flow when no sticky particles are present that might plug the mesh. The mesh pads are from 4 to 12 inches thick and may be installed 0 to 45 degrees from the horizontal.
Mist Pressure Switch can be used to energize a warning signal during machine operation. The ranges of adjustment starts from .03 psi (0.8″ H2O) to 3.0 psi (83″ H2O). It is used to prevent machine startup when manifold pressure is not within accepted limits. Safety switch is used to respond to drop or rise of oil mist line pressure.
Misting fans are used to control and manage dust and odor in large industrial settings. It can be used to perform special effects such as fog effects, during live sports and entertainment events. It helps farmers keep their livestock cool during transport, when a livestock cooling system is most needed. It can also be used as part of a greenhouse humidification system.
Misting systems are used for dust and odor control. These are designed to efficiently introduce a super fine mist into the area to be cooled which almost instantly evaporates. It is used for residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural applications.
