Wet Scrubbers

Wetted packed towers are the simplest and most commonly used approaches to gas scrubbing.

Wet scrubbers remove contaminants from a gas stream by passing the stream through a packed structure.

The contaminant is absorbed into or reacted with the scrubbing liquor.

The packing of the tower is normally a proprietary loose fill random packing designed to encourage dispersion of the liquid flow without tracking while providing maximum contact area for the ‘mass transfer’ interaction.

They can be designed for very high efficiencies with relatively low capital and running costs.

Venturi Scrubber - 

Venturi scrubbing is the most effective technique for the removal of particulates from a gas stream, even down to a sub-micron size.

Fluidised Bed Scrubber - 

In a fluidised bed scrubber the typical single bed of a packed tower structure is replaced by two or more shallow beds.
