The Eliminator line is a dry system with a periodic wash down. The water used to wash the filter media will be returned to the tank that is being served. The water acts as replaced water for the tankand typically provides half of the total water necessary for replacement of vapoized water from the plating process.
The advantage of this type of system is that chrome will not build up in the duct or hood. This keeps the whole system cleare and thus the whole shop cleaner. Additionally, since chrome does not exist in the duct nothing will get to the blower, which can mean a substantial savings to you because you can use a less expensive metal blower. An additional savings is realized in the fact that chrome is recovered by the system returning the recovered chrome to the tank instead of it going into the air or the waste treatment system. Since this system sits on the back of the tank in the plenum area of the hood no space is wasted, and chrome will not leak out between the scrubber and blower.
Your neighbors will appreciate that you are no longer putting chemicals in the air and your employees will appreciate that the system requires much less cleaning and is designed to the latest standards published by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. These standards are used by OSHA and the EPA. The system has been used in the Bay Area for over 15 years and has provedto reduce chrome emissions.
We highly recommend this package for Hard Chrome Environment.
