Concentrators are used for large volumes of gas with a low volume concentration to change those large volumes of air into small ones with higher solvent concentration. This helps to down-size the downstream exhaust gas purification plant on the level of adsorption or oxidation.
ROTAMILL’s exhaust gas purification plants provide an excellent problem-solving-opportunity because of its high technical standard. Thus the activator plants have a genius and economic attractive concept.
While flowing through an adsorbent (activated carbon or zeolite), the solvent in the gas is adsorbed and the clean gas can be blown into the atmosphere. After the adsorbent is saturated, the phase of desorption is started automatically. Hot gas or water vapor will be given to the adsorbent within the reverse flow. Throughout the condensation the solvents are liquefied and can be reused after an eventually needed additional processing.
Double- or group plants consist of two or more connected adsorption buckets. Those swap between ad- and desorption so that the functioning is given continuously.
The functional principle of the concentrator is mainly as above mentioned. In difference here the adsorption surface turns continuously, to provide the function of all processes at the same time. The desorption takes place through heated air in the reverse flow. This air is concentrated and leaded through a downstream exhaust gas purification plant.
