Counter Current Scrubber

Efficient solution for little space

Counter current scrubbers offer a competitive solution for "single substance problems". With our design we can ensure that contaminants will be removed efficiently from the waste air. The counter current scrubber is a highly effective solution for many pollution problems. Each unit is complete packing material, mist eliminator and liquid distribution. The scrubber can be optimally adjusted to clean gas values by variation of packing material and dosage of chemical agents in the washing liquid.

Concept

The washing liquid flows from top to bottom through the scrubber packing into an embedded sump. The gases to be scrubbed are conducted from bottom to top through the filling material (counter current). The application of the counter current principle leads to the highest scrubbing rates for toxic gases and odours. This way more than 99 % of e.g. chlorine gas, ammonia and hydrochloric acid vapour can be removed.

APPLICATION

Typical applications are the separation of organic and anorganic acids like (HCl, HF, SO2, NOx, acetic acid) as well as H2S, ammonia and water soluble, organic compounds (Acetone, Alkohols among others).
