MULTIWIR
MULTIWIR dust separator operates as a wet deduster. The apparatus consists of two chambers. Both are equipped with Multiwir rectangular packings made from perforated polypropylene strips. The first chamber, equipped additionally with spray nozzles, operates as an actual deduster. The second chamber is assigned for droplet separation.

The gas stream entering the apparatus flows downwards cocurrently with the liquid through the packing in the first chamber. Dust particles, subjected to centrifugal force, settle on packing strips and are rinsed by the liquid. Droplets entrained by the gas stream are stopped in the second chamber. They settle on the packing surface and drop.

The separation efficiency of the Multiwir sugar-dust separators has been measured in Sugar Factory “Zbiersk” (Poland) during sugar campaign 2001. The measurements concerned separation of sugar dust emitted by a fluid bed dryer of a throughput 400 tons of sugar/24h. The average amount of sugar separated was about 3 tons/24h. The emission of sugar dust turned out to be about 3 kg/24h. Hence, the separation efficiency reached 99,9%, while the pressure-drop in the apparatus was below 700 Pa.

MULTIWIR DUST SEPARATORS are characterized by:
  • high separation efficiency 99,9%
  • small and compact size
  • low pressure drop (below 900 Pa)
  • low investment and exploitation costs
