How a Scrubber Works
Colt's Acid Gas Scrubbers will typically use Sodium Hydroxide in water to neutralize the effluent from process, usually Chloride or Sulfur compounds which are products of combustion from the upstream thermal oxidizer. The scrubber is a vertical tower packed bed, or spray tower, with an integral corrosion resistant alloy quench that saturates the incoming air stream reducing the temperature to safe levels.
