Efficiency in mechanical fibrous filters loading with liquid aerosols

M. Dalemo*, Absolent AB, Sweden

High efficiency mist collectors enable recirculation of air back to the workplace and thus have a potential to both produce clean air and save a lot of energy. Low pressure drop in the mist collector, when loaded with oil, is also important to prevent leakages from the machine cabinet. A lot of research is done on fibers and fibrous filter materials loaded with liquid. However, few works are found on how these theories can be applied when designing cassettes and optimizing the overall performance of fibrous filter units.

The aim with this study was to examine how efficiency and pressure drop are related to the accumulation of oil in fibrous glass filter cassettes and how this is influenced by the fiber diameter and air flow....
