From Packed Bed Scrubbers
The Macrotek Packed Bed Scrubber is an air pullution control sollution that utilizes a vertical counter-current design for high efficient absorption of gases. In the vertical counter-current scrubber design, gas flows upward while scrubbing liquid flows down through banks of sprays. The absorption of gases takes place in the packed tower scrubber's random packing section and scrubbing liquid is introduced in a liquid trough or spray distribution system. A high efficiency mist eliminator removes entrained liquids, an essential step in performance of the packed bed scrubber system. Depending on the application, a regulated amount of reagent is added to the recirculating liquid to react with the pollutant. The reaction product will be carried with other particulates in the re-circulating liquid and exits the system through a controlled blow-down stream. Clean gas exits the top of the vessel.
- In addition to extensive uses in air pollution control, the packed tower can serve as a gas and liquid contactor for many process applications and heat transfers

- Flexible design
- Low system pressure drop
- Contains no moving parts
- Fully customized, site-specific package, including fan, re-circulating liquid system, and controls
Common applications include, but are not limited to the below.
- HCl & other acids
- NH3 and Urea
