Physical and chemical adsorption of VOCs and other gas-phase pollutants.
In adsorption, gaseous pollutants are removed from an air stream by transferring the pollutants to the solid surface of an adsorbent. Activated carbon is the most commonly used adsorbent. Adsorption involves the adhesion of pollutant gas molecules to porous solid surfaces that the contaminated air stream passes through.
The Waste transfer hub pictured below, has an installation of two carbon adsorbers, each of annular design and capable of handling 60,000m3/h of exhaust air. The adsorbers utilise granular activated carbon as the adsorption media.
SOS quality systems for pollution control, storage tanks and process vessels meet ISO 9001 requirements. All are manufactured in accordance with appropriate design and construction codes, principally BS 4994, BS EN12573 and BS EN 1380.Contact us today, for one of our design engineers to evaluate your application and determine the optimum design parameters for your installation.
