  • The top stage can reach 97% settling efficiency
  • Pressure drop of the line, including a 5 stage preheater, is less than 50 mbar
  • Heat and energy consumption is reduced
  • Reduction of dust load to filter

Technical advantages

  • Overall design to achieve a very low pressure drop
  • High heat exchange efficiency
  • Large cone to avoid build-up
