Air pollution control expert, Macrotek Inc., has recently received a contract to design and build a counter-current spray tower for an alternative energy company based out the United States. The spray tower will be utilized for the cooling and condensation of hydrocarbons from a gas stream.
Macrotek’s Spray Tower utilizes a vertical counter-current design for efficient heat transfer between the gas and liquid phases. The spray tower cooler is specifically designed for applications where fouling due to solids buildup and sticky hydrocarbon condensation is a concern. In the vertical counter-current design, gas flows upward through an open tower while cooling liquid is sprayed down through banks of sprays.
The project is in the design phase and is scheduled for completion by April 2017.
