What is a Demister?
DEMISTERs are essential in many process operations for the removal of entrained material in vapour flow. Demister ASIA’s Demisters and mist eliminators provide a wide range of solutions suitable for any application.
The principle of a Demister operation is based on having a large number of obstacles intercepting entrained droplets in a vapour flow. These obstacles must provide minimum drop in pressure over the removal system.
How a Demister Works:
Mist eliminators/ Demisters are fabricated from knitted materials with interlocking asymmetrical loops of metal or plastic with typical diameters of 0.1 – 0.3mm. By careful choice of wire diameter, DemisterASIA has produced demisters with extremely high free volumes (typically 98 – 99%) along with very high removal efficiency and low pressure drop.
Along with wire diameter and mesh density, another important parameter in design and operation of a demisters is the vapour velocity. This can be controlled by careful selection of the eliminator area. Optimal area will depend on operating temperature, pressure and pressure drop. Under normal operating conditions more than 99% removal efficiency can be achieved with a pressure drop of less than 250 Pascals.
Different Types Of Demisters:
DEMISTERs can come in different forms and designs, a general guideline as follows:
|Standard DEMISTER Types||Surface Area m²/m³||Free Volume %||Density kg/m³||Typical Applications|
|Type 1||1650||95||450||Very high efficiency|
|Type 2||1300||95.5||350||High efficiency|
|Type 3||600||97.5||195||Very high efficiency & clean service|
|Type 4||400||97.5||195||Heavy duty|
|Type 5||350||97.75||170||Heavy duty|
|Type 6||300||98||145||General purpose|
|Type 7||250||98.5||125||High velocity|
|Type 8||200||98.75||100||High velocity, dirty service|
|Type 9||200||98.75||100||High velocity, clean service|
|Type 10||150||99||75||Dirty service, least pressure drop|
|Type 11||445||98||145||High efficiency, fine entrainment|
|Type 12||400||98.5||120||Fine entrainment|
|Type 13||1200||93||600||High efficiency, fine entrainment|

Why Demisters from DemisterASIA?
Elimination of DA demisters are dependent on droplet sizes:
5 – 9 micron 99%
> 10 micron 99.5%
Most of the weight of entrained mist tends to be associated with the larger mist particles (larger than 5 – 10μm) thus providing greater than 99.99% weight removal.
