Sulfuric acid plants
The amount and type of mist generated in a given location in a sulfuric acid plant can vary greatly depending on the specific plant, its age, design, and operation. Many types of mist eliminators are used in sulfuric acid plants
.

Drying towers
Drying towers typically use DEMISTER® mist eliminators. Another option is to use the FLEXIFIBER® type IC-K mist eliminators.
   
Interpass and final absorption towers
Interpass and final absorption towers typically use FLEXIFIBER® type BD or FLEXIFIBER® Type IC mist eliminators.  
 
Tail gas scrubbers
Single absorption plants that have added ammonia based tail gas scrubbers to reduce SO2 emissions can create a high percentage of sub-micron particles that can be addressed by using the FLEXIFIBER® Type BD mist eliminators.
   
Ore smelting
Smelting of ores often produces flourides that will corrode glass and glass fibers. In these instances, the recommended product is FLEXIFIBER® Type BD mist eliminators manufactured with special carbon fiber.
