Fiber Bed Mist Eliminator consists of thick layers of very fine fibers placed between two concentric cylindrical screens or cages.
All Fiber Bed Mist Eliminators operate in a similar manner. Gases containing mist particles are directed horizontally through the fiber bed and the mist particles collect on the individual fibers within the fiber bed and coalesce to form liquid films.
These liquid films are then moved through the fiber bed by the gas flow, then the liquid drains off the downstream face of the fiber bed by gravity.
Fiber Bed Mist Eliminators are typically installed in a vessel or tank and the collected liquid is continuously drained from within the tank.
