Tri-Mer Introduces Stainless Steel Dust Collector

Tri-Mer Corp. introduces an all-stainless steel version of its "MCD" Whirl Wet dust collector.

The MCD is a "modular conveyor drag-out" system that was engineered for facilities with high dust loadings or that operate continuously. The MCD Whirl Wet efficiently isolates particulate. When collected dust reaches a set point, the collection module is "dragged out" and replaced with an empty collection module, allowing operation (also routine maintenance) to continue without interruption. 

OSHA and NFPA mandates regarding explosive dust emissions have revived interest in wet collection technology. The Whirl Wet dust collector is a proven, practical answer for collecting virtually all dusts over 3 microns, whether or not the dusts are volatile.  

The original MCD Whirl Wet was manufactured in 100% polypropylene and has been installed in food and beverage processing facilities throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

The Whirl Wet is 95-99% efficient for soluble and insoluble particulate.  Energy generated inside the unit will not allow the system to clog under any operating conditions. Therefore, the agglomeration and sticky residues that are common with dry collectors are not an issue for the Whirl Wet. The system does not use common “high-maintenance” components, such as spray nozzles, pumps, and dust bags. Instead, it uses a process to create intense mixing of dust particles and water.

Whirl Wet dust collectors have no internal moving parts, are self-cleaning, and highly energy-efficient. Water use is low: following the initial charge, water additions are only needed to compensate for evaporation and drag-out.

The Stainless Steel MCD Whirl Wet is manufactured in capacities from 1,000 to 60,000 cfm and can be supplied alone or with ducting to one or multiple sources.
