impurities


Explanation:
No dicionário online da Porto Editora a tradução para impurezas é
impurities, lees, dregs, sediment

impurities


Explanation:
Concordo com os que preferem impurities, a menos que a descrição do processo estivesse tão detalhada que especificasse que a única impureza além de água e óleo fosse dust, pois poderia também ser gases ou vapores. A possibilidade de impurezas como vapores aromáticos exige às vezes uma filtração por carvão ativado. Traduzir impurezas como dust não deixa de ser apenas uma suposição gratuita pela parte do texto examinado.
