Whirl/Wet Large Capacity Dust Collector

Aug. 5, 2023
Tri-Mer's wet dust collector has a capacity of 52,500 cfm and collects soluble and non-soluble particulate 3 microns and larger.

A wet dust collector with a capacity of 52,500 cfm, the Whirl/Wet collects soluble and non-soluble particulate 3 microns and larger, at efficiencies of 97 to 99% and higher. It's well-suited to volatile dust from flour, grains, sugars, pharmaceuticals, and exotic metals. Whirl/Wet generates energy inside the unit, preventing the system from clogging. As a result, the agglomeration and sticky residues that plug baghouse devices are not an issue.


The large-capacity Whirl/Wet is available in polypropylene, polyethylene, engineered plastics, and stainless steel, and is manufactured in manual and automated formats. These systems are well suited to heavy dust-loading applications and locations where water utility costs are rising. After the original charge, water replenishment is only needed to compensate for evaporation and drag-out. The automated model provides continuous operation, even during drag-out.

  • Manufactured from polypropylene, stainless steel or mild steel
  • Access ports/doors allow access to the internal unit
  • Corrosion-resistant lower reservoir section designed to prevent solids accumulation and allows for easy drainage
  • High efficiency (95% @ 15 micron and larger) mist eliminator of chevron blade type
  • Gems Level Switches, factory mounted for high and low liquid level alarms
  • Dwyer Photohelic differential pressure gage and solenoid valve for automated water level control. Hayward or equal manual valves for water fill
  • ASCO or equal electrically actuated solenoid valves for auto water fill
  • Schedule 80 PVC plumbing
  • Vinyl tubing with traps for differential pressure connections
