Kimre mesh pads offer high efficiency mist elimination. The pads employ a unique woven structure and a variety of filament sizes and weave densities. The woven material produced is in relatively thin layers (2.5 mm to 50 mm thick) with a pad being assembled from a number of layers which may be the same or may vary in weave and composition. As such a pad can be designed to achieve a given mist removal performance, liquid handling capability etc. This method of construction results in predictable, reliable performance and also allows for easy cleaning by pulling the individual layers apart and washing them. Kimre pads can also be used as mass transfer media in packed towers.
