Crossair provides the most advanced chromium and/or acid mist eliminators available in the industry today utilizing the latest composite mesh pad technology to meet the strictest standards, including “the California standard”, the New Source Mact Standard, and the tough individual state AQMD Standard. Our multi-stage unit, with each individual stage consisting of properly selected and sequenced mesh pads, is engineered to remove a specific particle size. The system then drains the chromium for recovery back to the plating tank. The mesh pads are sealed inside the vessel to prevent bypass. The mist eliminator is also designed to run dry with an automatic spray wash down system that keeps the mesh pads clean while returning the chromium rinse back to the plating tank to make up for tank evaporative losses. This maintains a constant tank level as evaporation is balanced with spray wash down volume. No effluent goes to waste treatment. The mist eliminator proprietary design is also extremely effective controlling other acid mists such as sulfuric acid, battery charging, nickel compounds, all metal bearing plating chemistries, alkaline mists, and chemistries and processes that evolve in mist form.
