Bionomic counter-current packed towers are the ideal solution to air pollution problems associated with the removal of corrosive vapors, unwanted mists, noxious and odoriferous gases. By creating a counter-current flow between contaminated gases and scrubbing liquid throughout a high surface area packed bed, rapid and uniform absorption of pollutants is achieved with maximum efficiency. Series 5000 towers are designed to accept a wide variety of packings, mist eliminators and gas scrubber liquor distribution systems. This enables the scrubbers to meet a full range of applications and gas absorption requirements.
For especially troublesome low solubility gases, scrubbers can be custom engineered to include extra depth or multiple packed beds with intermediate step chemical treatment. Construction materials include thermoplastics, fiberglass reinforced plastic, dual laminate, mild steel, stainless steel, high nickel alloys, hastalloy and corrosion resistant coating and linings.
In situations where building codes limit the height of rooftop structures, or where lower absorption efficiencies are acceptable, compact horizontal Series 5500 crossflow packed scrubbers are available.
The Series 5000 Packed Tower is also available in an air stripper version for removal of VOC compounds or ammonia from water streams.
