One of our partners for oaking systems carefully chars oak to light, medium or dark toasts. The wood smoke must be scrubbed before release into the atmosphere. The Cyclonic Separator pulls in the smoke, whirling it at high speed as it sprays water to wet the tiny burned wood particles which become heavy enough to precipitate out. The liquid is drained and filtered for safe disposal.
