Whirl / Wet Dust Collection Systems
High Efficiency Dust Collection Systems
have Low Operating Costs; Ideal for Dust Above 3 Microns
Whirl / Wet employs a unique process to create intensive mixing of the dust
particles and water.
To infuse dust particles with water droplets, the mixture is passed with
high velocity through a
fixed-position dual opposed blade system. The mixing of the
dust-laden airstream and liquid occurs,
and, to increase turbulence, a tangential airstream is injected through
the lower blade assembly.
Rotation is accelerated, droplets in the airstream are processed through
a mist eliminator located
downstream, and particulate material is deposited on the bottom of the
unit for recovery or disposal.
Water level is maintained automatically and make-up water is only needed
to compensate for
evaporation or sludge removal.
Whirl / Wet operates in
the 99% efficiency range for a wide variety of applications, and over a
wide range of micron sizes, with removal efficiency dropping off under 3
microns. For fine particle
applications, PM2.5, submicron particulate and condensables, view our
Cloud Chamber Scrubber technology.
Whirl / Wet dust collection systems are effective for soluble and
Applications, from metal grinding to food processing are ideally suited
to the Whirl / Wet.
Energy generated inside the unit will not allow the system to clog under
conditions; so, the agglomeration and sticky residues that plug
baghouses are not a
problem with the Whirl / Wet.
your application involves very hot gases, Tri-Mer's
Non-Ceramic Catalyst Filter combines high collection efficiency with operation to 1650°F.
If your application requires a dry dust collector, Tri-Mer’s
Tri-Flow filter system provides MERV 16 performance, and, like the
Whirl Wet, the advantage of self-cleaning.
Whirl / Wet is a frequently specified dust collection system for coal,
fertilizer and sugar dusts. It satisfies the dust elimination
requirements of stone finishing and battery
manufacturing. Whirl / Wet is ideal for controlling emissions from solar
panel manufacturing. It is the
leading dust collection system wherever metal or plastic grinding or
variable dust loadings.
Whirl / Wet is advantageous for
materials recovery. Processes that were not formerly compatible with materials recovery become good candidates as a result of
the Whirl / Wet. Whirl Wet uses less water than any competitive dust
collection system. To demonstrate the effectiveness of Whirl Wet dust collection systems in
your facility, ask about Tri-Mer's Pilot Plant Program.
