Plastic Random Packing for Air Stripping - Air and Climate

Air Stripping is the transferring of volatile components of a liquid into an air stream. This process is used for the purification of groundwater and wastewater containing volatile compounds. Air Strippers are usually packed towers operated with a countercurrent flow of water and air. The design for Air Strippers involves a packed tower which includes plastic random packing it its design. The size of the packed tower and plastic random packing is determined by the air to water flow rates. Since many of the compounds are hazardous pollutants, the air exiting the stripper may require emission control. Some common compounds that can be removed by air stripping include Ammonia, Benzene, Xylene.
