Fiber Bed (or Candle Filters)

Fiber Bed (or Candle Filters)


Fiber Bed Mist Eliminators are also commonly known as fiber bed filters or candle filters. Our CECO Filters brand Fiber Bed Mist Eliminators are optimal for capturing and removing sub-micron liquid and soluble particulate from process gas streams, and they are used extensively by facilities seeking to reduce emissions across a wide range of industries. They achieve collection and removal efficiencies as high as 99.9% and enable the recovery of valuable material even in heavy liquid situations.

The filters are typically constructed in annular cylindrical form from 2 ft. to 20 ft. tall. The cylinder is formed by rolled screens, with both an outer and inner screen used. The filter material is placed between the inner and outer cylindrical screens to form the fiber bed. The diameter of the fibers, fiber material and the material’s packing density determines the operating parameters of the filter (such as pressure drop, collection efficiency, and gas through-put). Plates and flanges are attached to the ends to permit a variety of mounting and draining methods.
