Oil Mist Control
APC Technologies offers four technologies for oil mist control, condensed hydrocarbon fumes, aerosols, overspray, and other condensed fumes:
Choosing Oil Mist Control Technology
- For the vast majority of oil mist control applications, APC’s Ultra High-Efficiency Filter (UHF®) System is ideally suited, offering lower capital, control efficiency of up to 99.9%, and substantially lower operating and maintenance costs. The UHF® system offers simultaneous high-efficiency removal of the oil/condensed fume aerosol and any solid particulate matter, without any plugging problems at all, providing consistent air flow/process ventilation, no process downtime for filter replacement, and extremely low maintenance costs.
- APC’s VP Series Venturi Scrubbers provide high removal efficiencies on oil mists and aerosol streams with larger particle sizes at low capital cost.
- APC’s CP Catalytic Oxidizers can be further used where VOC control is also required and use high-efficiency catalysts to achieve 97%-99+% destruction of the hydrocarbons at lower operating temperatures. APC applies the unique Ultra High-Efficiency Filter (UHF®) as a pre-filter to protect the catalyst and typically guarantees catalyst life at a minimum of 3 years. Depending on hydrocarbon loading and heat content of the gas stream, APC’s catalytic oxidizers may require little or no natural gas to sustain required temperatures, through use of high-efficiency heat exchangers.
- APC’s ThermPure Thermal Oxidizers can be used where VOC control is also required also and provide very high control efficiencies – 99% plus – through high-temperature conversion of the hydrocarbons to products of combustion. APC offers primary and secondary heat exchangers to maximize the energy efficiency of the thermal oxidizer.
