FLEXIFIBER® Type IP (Impaction Panel) Mist Eliminator
Economically capture liquid particles in the 1 to 3 microns range.
FLEXIFIBER type IP mist eliminators primarily use the impaction mechanism to remove entrainment from vapor. Collection efficiencies on 98% sulfuric acid mist are essentially 100% on all particles greater than 3 microns, 85 to 97% on all particles 1 to 3 microns and 50 to 85% on 0.5 to 1.0 microns. Operating pressure drops are normally 125 to 180 mm (5 to 7 in) W.G.
Elements are normally rectangular in shape and are available in various metals, typically metal frames and glass fiber media.
Type IP fiberbeds are most commonly used in sulfuric acid plants.
How it works
Inertial impaction occurs where the mass of the droplet is large enough that it typically cannot follow the path of the gas stream and impacts directly on the target.
