Whirl / Wet Dust Collection Systems
Collect Dusts Above 3 Microns
High Efficiency Dust Collection Systems
have Low Operating Costs
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 insoluble particles.
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 any operating
conditions; so, the agglomeration and sticky residues that plug baghouses are not a
problem with the Whirl / Wet.
If your application involves very hot gases, Tri-Mer's UltraTemp Hot Gas Filtration System
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, aluminum,
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 finishing creates
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.
Click on baghouse dust collection for a comparison between Whirl/Wet and baghouse
dust collection. Whirl Wet uses less water than any competitive dust collection system.
