A manufacturer of floor coverings used vent filters on raw material silos. One, fitted to a silo that was filled and emptied constantly, was subject to vibration and fluctuations in pressure and dust loading. It had to be lifted to ground level every three months so bags could be changed and cages repaired.

Florida Tile experienced high maintenance, and unplanned shut-downs due to a dry scrubber (bag house) on a glazing operation. The high weight and moisture of the glaze made it difficult to contain the overspray and caused frequent production stoppages. Maintenance was costly, involving both the bag house and ventilation hoods.
A Whirl Wet 4200 cfm Whirl Wet industrial dust collection system was chosen to capture particulate from a pug mill used by the Public Works Department to make road base. The Whirl Wet is ideally suited to this application: it efficiently captures 99% of particulate 10.0 microns in size and 98% of particles 5.0 microns in size, while using very little water.
A manufacturer of natural stone and composite products for countertops, landscaping and commercial applications, chose Whirl Wet industrial dust collection technology. The system is a Model H, which is manufactured in capacities from 425 cfm to 50,000 cfm and higher. The system selected has a maximum 5250 cfm capacity; an automatically timed drain-down system provides efficient management of particulate.
A large multinational manufacturer of chemicals, polymers and other petrochemical derivatives chose a Whirl Wet industrial dust collection system to collect particulate from a pellet dryer. The system, a Model H, has a capacity maximum of 5250 cfm.
Hanson Brick is North America’s largest brick manufacturer, with a capacity of more than 1.7 billion bricks. It also is the region’s only kiln-fired face brick manufacturer.
A manufacturer of precision metal components chose a Whirl Wet Scrubber for the collection of particulate from multiple machining operations. The customer debated between an all-polypropylene unit, or a mild steel unit with an epoxy liner, ultimately opting for the polypropylene. (Tri-Mer also manufactures this system in PVC, PVDF and stainless steel.)

The six PTFE filters in the system are MERV 15 rated, and collect all particulate, including submicron particulate, at 99.999% efficiency or better.
The systems all use Tri-Mer’s PTFE membrane, a HEPA Level, MERV 16 media, which has a very high dust loading capacity. Filters provide collection efficiencies of 99.999% on 0.5 micron and larger particles by weight, and cost-effective compliance with stack emissions standards.
The Tri-Flow units range in capacity from 2000 to 20,000 cfm; all use Tri-Plus MERV 15 filters, an alternative proven superior to bags and cartridges, which are typically MERV 10-13.
First, a few clarifications. Wet dust collectors are sometimes referred to as “wet scrubbers,” although they are technically not scrubbers at all. There are several types of wet collectors, including Venturis, cyclones and centrifugal systems.
Catalyst-embedded ceramic filters offer a new technological capability of removing NOX at lower temperatures, while simultaneously removing PM, SOX and HCl. The technology also removes organic hazardous air pollutants (O-HAPS) THC, dioxins and mercury, all in a single compact system.
A manufacturer of pies, biscuits, buns, and crusts for many of the world’s largest food chains and retailers selected a 525 cfm Model H Whirl / Wet dust collector to collect particulate from sugar and cinnamon dust.
