by Clear Ion Clear Ion Experts Pvt Ltd
Working procedures of any of the machine or the product that includes any sort of technicalities have always been a bit too deep, therefore, before getting into the details of something that is too deep, one should always start with the basics of it this makes it easier for anyone to further develop a proper understanding of the other procedures associated with that product or machine. So, following the same here we will, first of all, see what a wet scrubber exactly is, and then we will further move to its working process.

What is a wet scrubber?

Wet scrubbers are filtration systems that are used for removal of the gaseous pollutants from the streams of exhaust; these are called the wet scrubbers as they conduct this removal process through the use of water or other liquids.

Now that we have a basic knowledge about the exact definition of a wet scrubber so now we can smoothly move to the working procedure of it and undoubtedly it would be easier for our understanding.

Working procedures of the wet scrubbers-

The Water works as the best solvent to be used for the removal of inorganic contaminating elements from the fume; if we get into the working process of the basic wet scrubber then we can say that the water is captured in a metal container then the gas that is contaminated passes through the water, all the contaminating elements are then absorbed by the same water and the clean gas is then given an exit from the scrubber. 

Though water is the most common solvent used for this purpose still there are many other liquids as well that can be used for the process. The best liquid to be used for the process depends on the type of element that is to be removed from the gas to make it fit to be released in the atmosphere.

Working procedure of wet scrubber with the particulate matter

In order to make it easier for everyone to understand let us talk about the working procedure of the wet scrubber with the particulate matter in the stepwise procedure:
  • Wet scrubbers capture the particulate matter in the form of liquid droplets. 
  • The droplets are then taken into the collection with the dissolving liquid or with the absorbent pollutant gas. 
  • The droplets if left in the scrubber inlet gas then they should be given an exit from the outlet gas stream through a mist eliminator. 
  • The liquid that comes out as the result of the process conducted should be given a proper treatment before its discharge or before its reuse in the plant.

If we get more into the details of the scrubbers then they are not just about the dry scrubbers and the wet scrubbers. The wet scrubbers are further divided into many more types the users need to choose from those types of wet scrubbers as per the nature of the waste that is to be treated. However, the most popular type of wet scrubber out of them is the packed- Bed wet scrubber this is also known as the packed tower or “acid gas”.

As we have been talking about the working procedure of the wet scrubbers, therefore, we should also take a look at the industries in which it is popularly used:

  • Oil and gas industries. 
  • Pharmaceuticals industries. 
  • Textile industries. 
  • Wastewater treatment industries
  • Fertilizer industries. 
  • Printing Industries
  • Food processing industries. 
  • Steel industries. 
  • Wood product industries.
  • Fertilizer industries. 
  • Nuclear waste industries. 
  • Metal recovery industries.

Other than the list given above there are many more places where the wet scrubbers are very much in use, if in case you are looking for best deals over a wet scrubber or if you are already using it and have got yourself stuck into the workings of it then for you the best thing to do is to get in touch with the Clear Ion purification service providing experts they have been in the industry of purification services for a very long time and therefore, they can help you the best not just with the bed scrubbers but also, if you need help regarding any other service related to the purification or cleaning then they can be considered for that as well.
