Brink Articles

Problem Solved with Brink Fiber Bed Mist Eliminator: Brink Compressed Gas Filter by MECS removes sub-micron aerosol mist contaminants at a chemical plant gas compressor.  Reprinted from "Compressor Tech²", 4 pages 

Demystifying Mist Eliminator Selection: Mist eliminators can protect equipment, recover product and control emissions.  Apply these techniques to select the best mist eliminator for your service.  Reprinted from "Chemical Engineering", 8 pages

Teamwork, technology result in early start-up for Peridot facility: Peridot Chemicals initiated a successful early start up of its new sulfuric acid plant - the culmination of the dedication to quality both by Peridot and by the project’s primary contractor, MECS of St. Louis, MO. Reprinted from "Sulfuric Acid Today", 1 page 

Plant air contamination removed with fiber bed mist eliminator: Brink Mist Eliminators remove moisture and oil mist from U.S. Steel’s compressed air systems. Reprinted from "Engineer’s Digest", 1 page

Bi-component mist eliminator stops particulate emissions: East Penn Manufacturing, a lead/acid automobile battery reclaiming facility, uses Brink Mist Eliminators on the smelter off gas to capture ammonium bisulfite sub-micron mist particles.  Reprinted from "Chemical Processing", 1 page

Bi-component bed mist eliminator eradicates acid-fume emissions: The Henkel Corp. in Hoboken, NJ manufactures surfactants.  A Brink Fuming Acid Vent System by MECS effectively captures and hydrolyses CSA vapors from tank truck loading and storage facilities in the plant.  Reprinted from "Chemical Processing", 2 pages

Mist Eliminator stops flooding; steadies process air dew point: The Lever Brothers’ detergent plant had flooding process air desiccant dryers on the sulfonation unit.  MECS’ Brink Mist Eliminators removed the condensation that was formed as a result of large ambient humidity excursions.  Reprinted from "Chemical Processing", 2 pages

Dupont Sets New Standards for Sulfuric Acid Plants: To avoid oleum fume releases during repair and replacement of piping systems in their sulfuric acid plant, Dupont engineers use a Brink Oleum Vent System to capture the dense sulfuric acid mist that is formed when oleum is exposed to moisture in the air.  Reprinted from "CPI Equipment Reporter", 2 pages   


Brink Case Studies

Plasticizer Opacity problem solved:  Bo-Tex, a synthetic textile producer,  was able to upgrade  and improve their air pollution control design by using a Brink Organic Package System to capture voluminous, billowing oil mist smoke and recycle the collected plasticizer oil.  2 pages

Brink Technical Papers

Clearing Up Common Misconceptions Regarding Mist Eliminators: Fiber bed mist eliminators have been around since 1958 and during the past 50 years or so, tremendous improvements have been made by MECS, however some nagging misconceptions commonly exist in industry today.  4 pages

Clearing Up Misconceptions Regarding Mist Eliminators in Sulfuric Acid Service: A similar technical paper as above, however this adds focus on the misconceptions  of “fiber bed weight” as a consistency parameter and EPA Method 8 as a fiber bed efficiency and performance metric in sulfuric acid plants.  3 pages

Brink Diffusion Fiber Beds for Ammonium Nitrate Applications: This paper reviews the basic diffusion fiberbed operating characteristics, mist collection mechanisms, fiber bed types & features, typical control equipment arrangements, and special features from a couple of large installations currently in operation today.  12 pages

Field Testing of Fiberbed Mist Eliminators for Sulphuric Acid Plant Service: This paper describes the portable field test apparatus, set-up and operation.  Field testing of different fiber bed packing types are compared along with an extended surface area concentric fiberbed mist eliminator. In addition, the value of process gas pressure drop in sulphuric acid plants is described.  14 pages
