MECS® Brink® Mesh Pads and Impaction Fiber Bed Mist Eliminators

MECS® Brink® Impaction Fiber Bed
Mist Eliminators
for Sulfuric Acid Plants

Designed for the efficient removal of large liquid droplets from process gas streams in the sulfuric acid industry and in numerous other industry applications. Our range of Brink® impaction fiber bed mist eliminator products is engineered to meet the most challenging requirements. From increasing operating time between turnarounds to ease of maintenance and equipment protection, our Brink® Impaction Fiber bed products deliver high collection efficiency and efficient operating and maintenance costs.


The distinctive design and materials of MECS® Brink® TowerGARD® mesh pads enable turndown ratios of 50% or more for sulfuric acid plants, and significantly improve corrosion resistance compared to conventional mesh pads.

Mesh Pads for Sulfuric Acid Plants

TowerGARD® Mesh Pad Performance

Fine mist created by mechanical shearing forces through tower packing can pass through conventional mesh pads and cause downstream corrosion of valuable equipment. TowerGARD® mesh pads capture, collect and return the acid mist to the tower. TowerGARD® systems made with co-knit fibers provide larger surface areas for the capture of slower and smaller droplets. These systems outperform conventional mesh pads and are capable of handling turndown ratios of 50% or more. 

Sulfuric acid plants using mesh pads in absorbing tower or drying tower service have long been plagued by the relatively short life of stainless steel, alloy 20 or even Teflon® mesh pads. Many plants replace such pads every two or three years and in some cases every year. The best corrosion-resistant alloy ever produced for protection against sulfuric acid is ZeCor®-Z. Only MECS can incorporate this material into TowerGARD® mesh pads. 

Produced with ZeCor®-Z Corrosion Resistant Materials

World-Leading Sulfuric Acid Plant Mist Elimination

MECS® TowerGARD® mesh pads and Brink® mist eliminator systems are all backed by the most experienced team of engineers and the most technically advanced research tools in the submicron aerosol mist collection industry. Since the first MECS® Brink® fiber bed mist eliminator  was developed in 1958, we have set the standard for providing the widest range of mist elimination solutions to meet diverse needs. As the world leaders in the design and construction of sulfuric acid plants, our engineers have in-depth knowledge of industrial gas inlet conditions, fiber bed design, and materials of construction and corrosion resistance. Our experts can analyze and recommend the right Brink® solution for even the most difficult sulfuric acid mist elimination projects. We can customize a solution for your organization to achieve the highest performance, lowest pressure drop, and longest lifecycle available, with lower plant maintenance and operating costs.
