They can be used to remove some particulates and/or gases from industrial exhaust streams. Traditionally, the term “scrubber” has referred to pollution control devices that use liquid to wash unwanted pollutants from a gas stream. Recently, the term has also been used to describe systems that inject a dry reagent or slurry into a dirty exhaust stream to “wash out” acid gases. Scrubbers are one of the primary devices that control gaseous emissions, especially acid gases.
The system below comprises an ammonia scrubber, a hypo scrubber (to remove H2S and sulphonated compounds), duty and standby exhaust fans and an adsorber with a free-standing 35m stack. The system’s volume flowrate is 60,000 m3/h.
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.
