Industrial Fumes Scrubbing System
One of the most basic of the various industrial scrubbers is the wet industrial scrubber. In its most basic form, water is encapsulated in a metal or composite container. Contaminated gas is passed through the water, and the water absorbs the contaminates. Other liquids can be used to effectively remove varied contaminates. These liquids differ in the chemical composition and the overall charge. These liquids can be anything from highly positively or negatively charged to non-charged. Because pollutants can differ in their charge, scrubbers can be packed with a liquid that will bind most effectively to remove the contaminate from the gas.
The gas exiting the scrubber is thus cleaner. Developments in wet scrubbers have allowed for increased efficiency in pollutant removal. One of the major developments has been to maximize the total surface of the liquid with which the polluted gas associates. More surface area means that more of the contaminates can be pulled out of the gas. Another development in scrubbers has been increasing the mixture of the gas with the scrubber fluid. These aspirators agitate the solution and increase the mixing of the polluted gas and the liquid.
The wet scrubber differs from the other different types of industrial scrubbers because the liquid-gas association increases the moisture level of the gas that is being expelled from the scrubber. The increased moisture in the gas will create a visible cloud exiting the scrubber.
