About Easom Corporation

Easom Corporation is a Massachusetts Corporation dedicated to selling and servicing Core Separator® systems in North America.  The company President is Dr. Bruce H. Easom (MIT ScD '92) who has been instrumental in the technology's development. 

Core Separator® System

The Core Separator System was invented by Dr. Leo A. Smolensky as an improvement over conventional cyclones to capture fine particles entrained in a gas stream.  The technology was improved and refined through a series of research projects funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory.  The breakthrough idea of the Core Separator system is that one could use a centrifugal separator, optimized for particle separation, in conjunction with a conventional cyclone to create a system having a particle collection efficiency higher than that of the cyclone alone.  An important milestone in the Core Separator system development was the production of a modular arrangement of separators and cyclones that allowed the system to be scaled-up to handle higher gas flows simply by adding additional modules without sacrificing separation efficiency.   

System Features

  • All steel construction makes system resistant to damage from sparks and fires.
  • Only one moving part - a conventional centrifugal fan
  • Recirculation feature provides excellent turn-down performance

The high efficiency separator directs particles to the cyclone for collection.  A 2.5 micrometer aerodynamic diameter particle has about a 50 percent collection efficiency in a cyclone.  After four passes through the cyclone the capture efficiency becomes 1-0.5 or about 94 percent.
