Solutions for Sub-Micron Blue Haze Aerosol Pollutant

PROBLEM: The byproduct of the production process at this foundry was sticky, gooey, sub-micron blue haze aerosol pollutant. This type of particle is the most difficult to capture, similar to tobacco smoke. Not only was there an exposure issue for employees, but the customer is located within downtown city limits and must have exemplary 0 emissions. The existing system was made up of ineffective scrubbers.

SOLUTION: The new system utilizes dense fiber-bed filters by Kimre. The filters run on automatic volume controls with variable frequency drive from Airtech Corporation to save energy. Because the filters start at 5” water column resistance, but end up at 20” of water column the fan must compensate for the difference.
