Dust, Particulate and Fume

Solid material conveyed in a gas stream can be referred to in numerous ways including "particulate", "dust", "fume" and "smoke".  Typically, most visible emissions (if not steam) are a solid material which we refer to as particulate matter.  There are numerous styles of equipment for removing particulate, each with their own specific characteristics, advantages and disadvantages.  Below is a general guide of the particulate removal devices that we manufacture, with a brief outline of their relative capabilities.  In all cases, please contact our engineers so that we can determine the correct solution to your air pollution control issues.
