Asphalt vents
Light end hydrocarbons emitted by hot asphalt are shock cooled when they contact the atmosphere creating a visible plume composed predominately of submicron liquid mist particles. This creates a "blue smoke" that can coat equipment, cause unpleasant odors, escape into the atmosphere, and become health hazards when inhaled.

These small organic mist particles are typically removed from the vapor stream by using FLEXIFIBER® mist eliminators, which can eliminate the asphalt mist plume and reduce or eliminate odor caused by mercaptens in the vapor stream.
 
The mist eliminator systems supplied by Koch-Glitsch can include all ancillary equipment such as prefilters, blowers, and heat exchangers for a complete skid-mounted system.
