$USD 350

$USD 175 (Member Only )

Course Objectives:

This course will discuss the techniques of particle removal from air streams, which are not covered in air filtration. Topics include cyclones, electrostatic precipitators, and wet scrubbers. It is important for the air filtration specialists to understand these pre-filtration separation processes because they are often needed in the design of filtration systems.

1. Airborne particles

  • 1.1 Particles in the air

  • 1.2 Technologies for air/particulate separation

2. Prefiltration devices

  • 2.1 Cyclones

  • 2.2 Electrostatic precipitators

  • 2.4 Wet scrubbers

  • 2.5 Comparison of these devices

  • 2.6 Opportunities and trends for future development
