Model HZI - Wet Scrubber
From Flue Gas Treatment
Wet scrubbing is the most effective method for removing acid gases from even heavily burdened flue gases and achieving lowest emission levels. It also assures excellent removal of fine particulates and aerosols. Consumable usage rates and residue quantities are minimised. The contaminants are captured by providing intensive contact between the flue gases and water. Depending on the specific functions of each scrubber stage this may be by injecting the water in small droplets or by providing large contact surfaces through special scrubber packings, this may be co- or countercurrent at small or high velocities and this may be by using plain water or by adjusting the pH through addition of reagents. The reaction products are extracted with the scrubber blowdown which is sent to the effluent treatment before final discharge.
- Lowest acid gas emissions with a high flexibility relative to load or flue gas contaminant changes
- Lowest residue generation from acid gas removal
- Highest availability and lowest O&M cost due to simple design and operation
- Proven technology with long industry record of success
