MECS Brink Mist Eliminators Quality Service Technology:
Oleum Vent Package
Because asphalt must be stored hot, the lighter ends are
vaporized and expelled as the tank is filled and/or vapor pressure
builds up. Where tanks are vented directly to the atmosphere, these
vapors condense into a visible submicron oil mist, creating problems
with air pollution compliance, safety and housekeeping.
|Asphalt Loading Racks
In loading hot asphalt into trucks or rail cars, additional
vapors escape and condense into visible mists. Since personnel work
in these loading areas, industrial hygiene exposure problems are created
in addition to pollution compliance and other problems.
The MECS Asphalt Vent Package is a skid mounted unit containing
a prefilter section, a housing containing a MECS Brink® Mist Eliminator
Element, and a blower with motor. These packages are available in five sizes:
250, 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 CFM. They are used to collect the very
fine particulates which cause visible plumes from asphalt loading and storage
On storage tanks, the displaced mist is captured in a collection hood over
the tank vent. In loading operations, a collection hood mounted over the
filling nozzle collects the mist. Several loading nozzle and storage tank
hoods can be ducted to a single Asphalt Vent Package. The package blower
draws air and vapor from from the hoods and ducts through a disposable prefilter
to a MECS Brink® Mist Eliminator Element where submicron organic
mist is removed.
How the Package Works:
The mist laden gas is drawn into the unit through a prefilter section. This
prefilter collects the larger particles.
The prefilter has an easily removable frame which holds disposable filter
media. From the prefilter, the gas is drawn through a vessel containing
a MECS Brink® Mist Eliminator Element. This element traps and removes
a minimum of 96% of the submicron particles. The collected oils are drained
from the bottom. The clean gas exits from a stack on the fan discharge.
