FLO-P AIR-CLEANING UNITS FOR THE REDUCTION OF GREASE AND ODOR FROM INDUSTRIAL EXHAUSTS
The JIMCO industrial air purification systems are normally made according to client’s specific requirements. There are two main considerations when designing the air treatment system. The first step is to calculate the unit size to treat the air successfully. This is based on the process air organic content, air temperatures, air flowrates, grease, and odor destruction requirements, etc.
The second step is to configure the installation to meet space requirements because frequently space is at a premium in process plants. Over the years JIMCO has designed units that can be floor, ceiling, wall, or roof mounted to suit the installation requirements of all our clients. Access for maintenance is also carefully considered.
In February 2000 JIMCO received the EU Environmental Award for Cleaner Technology for the development of the Photolytic Oxidation System. The unique operation of the JIMCO FLO-P air purification system ensures that optimum purification of high-temperature exhaust air is achieved.
THE PROCESS WORKS AS FOLLOWS:
Step 1: Warm contaminated air (primary air) enters the lower part of the unit.
Step 2: The primary air passes through a maze filter resulting in the separation of large grease and water droplets.
Step 3: Primary air is cooled by mixing it with secondary air from the room (e.g. via a spot exhaust from a production line). The mixed air then passes over a bank of condensation blocks causing further grease/water separation from the air stream. This reduces power consumption during the photolytic oxidation process.
Step 4: The photolytic oxidation process is achieved using special low-pressure UV-C lamps that also generate a small quantity of ozone. Exposure to UV-C light breaks down organic compounds in the air and subsequent treatment with ozone completes the oxidation process.
JIMCO air-treatment systems are manufactured and supplied for various tasks. The reaction chamber of JIMCO’s industrial air cleaning system is made of acid proof stainless steel (316) and contains a number of JIMCO’s Photozone lamps™. These are dimensioned for the volume of air required to treat.
The systems is installed with automatic CIP cleaning systems. That means a minimum of maintenance of the daily basis as the unit cleans itself after use. The CIP system is controlled from the PLC-controller to program the cleaning sequence to your requirements. JIMCO and CIP suppliers have jointly selected the best environmentally friendly detergents for the cleaning process.
JIMCO’s industrial air cleaning systems are normally equipped with PLC-controllers incorporating modem links and alarm signals.
Since 1993 JIMCO has specialized in the reduction of grease, odor in exhaust air with high temperatures (frying, boiling and deep-frying processes) through the development of the unique UV-C & Ozone technology. This technology eliminates several environmental hazards generated by industrial and commercial processes.
JIMCO Air-treatment systems is used for a large number of different applications
- Food Industry
- Municipal facilities
- Animal husbandry and destruction
- Waste water plants
