Wet Scrubbers air pollution control equipments used to remove pollutants from flue gas escaping the boiler systems in the industries. They are highly effective in removing Sulphur compounds (such as Sulphur dioxide) and ash particles from the flue gas. The filtration is done by introducing a scrubbing liquid, typically water, in the gas stream. The particulates and dissolved gases are scrubbed off and collected in the scrubbing liquid.
Latest government policies lay immense emphasis on air pollution control to ensure that industries treat their effluent and flue gas effectively. This has increased the need for industries to invest in air pollution control equipment. Wet scrubbers are one of the most appropriate air pollution control equipment as they facilitate collection of both particulates and gases in a single system.
The features of wet scrubbers make them ideal choice for industrial boiler systems –
