We offer Whirl / Wet dust collector systems as pilot plants that provide air pollution dust control and collect all dusts above 1 micron. Combines a high efficiency wet dust collection system with low maintenance and operating costs. 
Whirl / Wet dust collection systems
provide air pollution dust control
and collect dusts above 5 microns.
High efficiency dust collection system
has low operating costs


Whirl/Wet employs a unique process to create intensive mixing of the dust particles and water.  To infuse dust particles with water droplets, the mixture is passed with high velocity through a fixed-position dual opposed blade system.  The mixing of the dust-laden airstream and liquid takes place and, to increase turbulence, a tangential airstream is injected through a linear slot in the lower blade assembly.  Rotation is accelerated, droplets in the airstream are eliminated through a mist eliminator located downstream, and particulate material is deposited on the bottom of the unit for recovery or disposal.  Water level is maintained automatically and make-up water is only necessary to compensate for evaporation or sludge removal.  Whirl/Wet operates in the 99%+ efficiency range for a wide variety of applications and over a wide range of micron sizes.  Click here if your particulate is 0.1 microns to 5 microns.


Whirl/Wet is effective for soluble and insoluble particles.  Applications, from metal grinding through food processing are ideally suited to the Whirl/Wet.  Energy generated inside the unit will not allow the system to clog under any operating conditions; therefore, the agglomeration and sticky residues that plug baghouses are not a problem with the Whirl / Wet.

Whirl/Wet is a frequently specified dust collection system for the collection of coal burning, aluminum, fertilizer and sugar dust, and is used for the dust elimination requirements of the stone finishing industry, lead particulate in the battery industry and every sector of the process industries.  Dust collection from grinding processes are excellent applications for the Whirl/Wet.  Venting is provided for applications generating hydrogen gas.  It is the leading dust collection alternative wherever metal or plastic finishing generates variable dust loadings.

Whirl/Wet is advantageous for  materials recovery.  Processes that were not formerly candidates for materials recovery become good candidates as a result of the Whirl/Wet.  Click here for a comparison between Whirl/Wet and baghouse dust collection.

Low water use is important, and Whirl Wet uses less water than any competitive dust collection system. To demonstrate the effectiveness of Whirl Wet dust collection in your facility, Tri-Mer offers a Pilot Plant Program.
