The Demister Pad is an entrainment (The carry-over of liquid particulate matter by gas or vapour is generally termed as 'entrainment) eliminator commonly encountered in gas-liquid separations. It is specially designed and fabricated from knitted wire of metallic or synthetic materials, to suit specific process configuration in existing or new equipment.


  • In air pollution control, to eliminate toxic mist from off-gases, E.g. sulphuric acid plants.
  • To reduce solvent losses in absorbers, scrubbers and distillation equipment. E.g. amine treating systems.
  • To minimize product losses in kettles, reboilers, vacuum pans, crystallizers and evaporators. E.g. sugar crystallization.
  • To eliminate entrainment in knock out drums and receivers.
  • To eliminate entrainment that might damage compressors.
  • To supplement equipment like carbon absorbers and electrostatic precipitators.
  • In refinery towers to prevent carbon and metal entrainment to downstream catalytic cracker and reformer units.
  • In liquid-liquid systems such as coalescers.
  • Sealing - gaskets made of knitted mesh having different degree of re-silences. E.g. in cable industry, radiation, shielding, automobile and computer industry.
