MECS Brink Mist Eliminators Quality Service Technology:
MECS developed the fiber bed mist eliminator in 1960. We continue to
be the leader in improved products which utilize the latest technology.
MECS welcomes the opportunity to investigate and recommend
solutions to any air pollution problem.
Systems are in operation throughout
the world which incorporate Brink technology to meet a variety of diverse
needs. Brink Mist Eliminator products offer longer service life resulting
in lower plant maintenance and operating costs.
Formation of Mists:
Small mist particles (tiny particles of liquid or dissolved solids suspended
in a stream of gas) are an inevitable product of many manufacturing processes.
Within a process, these particles can cause problems such as corrosion of
equipment, contamination of product, fouling of heat exchangers and catalysts,
and damage to instruments.
When released to the atmosphere, these mist particles
can cause violations of air pollution emission standards or of opacity regulations.
Mist can form in manufacturing processes in three different ways:
- Mechanical forces break up or "atomize" a liquid to form a mist.
- Cooling of a gas stream may result in the condensation of vapor to form a mist.
- Chemical reaction of two or more gases may take place at temperatures
and pressures where the reaction products are mists.
Mechanical forces typically create mist with large particles while particles
formed by condensation and chemical reactions are usually small (submicron).
MECS Brink® Mist Eliminators are designed to remove virtually any
type of mist from any gas stream. Brink Mist Eliminators excel at collecting
the very difficult to remove submicron size mist particles from gas streams.
MECS also offers complete package systems to control emissions
from oleum and asphalt storage and loading operations; and from asphalt
saturator, textile finishing and plasticizer coating operations. Packaged
systems are available for collecting oil from turbine lube oil reservoir
vents and oil/coolant from metalworking operations like machining.
We look forward to the opportunity to work with you to solve your mist related
problem. If you have questions or would like detailed information on Brink® Mist Eliminators contact us anytime at 281.350.1200.
