Wet Gas Scrubbing
Removal of inorganic components
The hot waste gas from the customer’s process or upstream oxidizer is cooled in a quench and then directed to a scrubbing chamber. The scrubbing medium, usually water or acid/alkali solutions is injected into the scrubber and trickles over the packing material from top to bottom. The inorganic pollutants in the waste gas interact with the scrubbing solution. Purified gas is demisted and leaves the scrubber.
