Gas Scrubbing - Particulate Scrubbers   


Many of the gas scrubbing systems that we install are for the removal of gaseous pollutants.  However, there are many occasions where the gas stream includes particulates that need to be removed either before a gas scrubbing section, or as a stand alone process.  These scrubbers are generally referred to as "Wet Scrubbers".

Venturi Scrubbers - Conventional    
  • Primarily for particle collection
  • Moderate efficiency for gas absorption
  • Gas and liquid pass through a narrow throat
  • Turbulence created provides gas-liquid contact
  • Particle collection down to 0.5 micron
  • Fixed and adjustable throats
  • High pressure drop/high energy use
  • Higher throat pressure drops increase fine particle collection
  • Can take a number of forms

Aeromix Venturi Scrubbers - Pumpless      Aeromix
  • Gas flow vertically upward through the venturi throat
  • Autocirculation of the liquid by the gas and gravity
  • No spray nozzles or pumps required
  • Particle collection down to 0.5 micron
  • Slurry concentrations up to 30% w/w
