The Core Separator has the following advantages over conventional collectors:
The Core Separator has been applied to emissions control on wood and coal-fired heating boilers and wood dryers as well as for product recovery applications, where it has provided a short payback period due to its high efficiency. In applications where high removal efficiencies are needed, the Core Separator may be the most cost-effective device. In addition to low capital cost, it has low operating costs, high reliability, no moving parts, and no liquid waste streams.
HOW IT WORKS
The system includes one special component, a high efficiency separator and two conventional components, a cyclone collector for extracting solids and a fan for flow recirculation. The Core Separator is actually a multitude of cylindrical units. Each unit has a single inlet for the stream to be treated and two outlets, one for the cleaned gas stream and the other containing a highly concentrated recirculation stream. The dust-laden recirculation stream is fed to the cyclone and then returns again by means of the fan. The processes of separation and collection are accomplished separately and by different components. The Core Separator cleans the inlet stream and detains dust particles in the system. Since its efficiency is quite high, the dust particles cannot leave the system. They recirculate again and again until collected in the cyclone.
