Title Experience in the removal of plasticiser aerosol from exhaust air
Original title Opyt očistki aspiracionnogo vozduha ot aėrozolej plastifikatorov [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Dec. 1988, No.12, p.15-17. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract This article describes a long-term test of installations, designed for the electrical cleaning of air exhausted from artificial leather manufacturing machines, the agent removed being dioctyl phthalate plasticiser. With a specific air load through the filter inlet section of 3,000-4,000m3/(h x m2) and a phthalate concentration in the exhaust air of up to 25mg/m3, plasticiser aerosol collection efficiency was 80-88%; the installation's aerodynamic drag was 30-50Pa and persisted as such for the duration of the 3-year operation period; the power consumption off mains required for phthalate aerosol removal was 135-235W per 10,000m3/h of purified air; the electrical filters were safe against the risk of a spark-induced ignition of the precipitated flammable liquids. Result of testing a 2-stage glass-fibre filter containing 20 cylinder-form filter elements are given in tabulated form.
