Gas Scrubbing - Dynawave™   

Originally developed by E.I. Du Pont de Nemours in the 1970s, this technology is now owned by Monsanto Enviro-Chem Systems (MECS). MECS have installed over 300 systems in a variety of applications worldwide.  With MECS as a technology partner, TAPC has designed, supplied and built 4 large scale plants in Australia.

The heart of the technology is the reverse jet, wherein the scrubbing liquid is injected counter-current to the gas stream in an open duct. The correct selection of gas and liquid flow rates and velocities results in the formation of an extremely turbulent "froth zone" where the liquid meets the gas stream. This provides highly efficient scrubbing in a non-clogging environment.

This provides the following advantages:

  • High efficiency gas absorption and particle removal from very dirty gases
  • The ability to handle gases containing sticky solids
  • The ability to scrub with high strength slurries such as
  •           Sodium Hydroxide, NaOH
              Calcium Hydroxide, Ca(OH)2
              Calcium Carbonate, CaCO3
              Magnesium Hydroxide, Mg(OH)2
              and others including waste metallic slag
  • High efficiency fine particle removal
  • Minimized maintenance requirements from having no internal components
