An increasingly high number of industries, from the fine chemicals to the cosmetics industry, are investing on the design and production of nanoparticles, such as metal oxides, in specific reactors. There is a need to recover these very fine powders from the exhaust streams often at high temperature, pressure and moisture.
The very fine particle size precludes the use of mechanical collectors by themselves. The main problem of using barrier filters is product hold-up and breakage of the nanoparticles.
Nanoparticles | General Arrangement
Nanoparticles can be produced by an array of fully scaled patent protected technologies. The traditional and most common manufacturing methods are plasma based used to produce simple and complex, multi-component mixed metal oxides.
Dried nanoparticles are usually collected with barrier filters or our Electrostatic Recyclone that separate and collect the dried powder produced in the plasma reactor.
