Abstract

See full text

The disclosure provides a particle separator for removing aerosolized particles from exhaust emissions from a preconditioner or other apparatus. The separator comprises an enclosure with at least two baffles linearly spaced from one another therein. At least two baffles prevent the exhaust from linearly flowing directly from an inlet through the separator to an outlet. Each baffle is positioned at an angle relative to the linear flow of exhaust into the separator and a distance from an inner surface of the separator. This places a leading edge within the exhaust flow to redirect a portion of the flow, thereby promoting impact of particles on a portion of the inner surface of the separator, while also providing a surface that collects particles in the flow that impact the baffle surface. The separator and baffle surfaces can be cleaned through an access. The separator can be box- or tube-shaped or other configuration.
