Turbotak - Atomizing Scrubber Control System
For gas streams containing acid gases and particulate, the Turbotak atomizing scrubber controls these contaminants in one system with minimal pressure drop, low water usage, and low maintenance.
- Low maintenance, low pressure drop
- Simultaneous removal of contaminant gases, particulate, and mists
- Patented Turbotak atomizing nozzles feature superior control and range of droplet size distributions
- Horizontal or vertical configurations
The Turbotak scrubber uses a finely atomized liquid to remove combinations of particulate, acid gases, fumes, vapors, and mists from industrial process gas streams.
Particulate or mist suspended in the gas stream collides with the liquid droplets. Droplet size distribution is crucial. The optimum droplet diameter for particulate removal is 15 to 20 times the particulate aerodynamic diameter.
Agglomerated droplets are removed by inertial means, gravity, and a downstream mist eliminator. When absorbing acid gases, the quantity of gas transferred to the liquid phase is proportional to the surface area of the atomized spray.
The significant collective surface area of the large number of extremely fine droplets in a Turbotak wet scrubber provides superior removal efficiency.
The Turbotak wet scrubber features a superior design that has no internal obstructions, such as packing media, thereby reducing the potential for fouling. In addition, low gas velocity minimizes or eliminates abrasion of internals. Along with this, the multiple stages of our patented Turbotak atomizing nozzles saturate the gas stream for optimum gas absorption and particulate control. These erosion and plug-resistant atomizing nozzles feature superior control and range of droplet size distributions.
The Turbotak atomizing nozzles are controlled independently of the gas stream. This gives the scrubber a low sensitivity to fluctuations in gas flow rates and contaminant concentrations. Pressure drop across the Turbotak wet scrubber is typically less than 2 in. w.g. (0.5 kPa), a critical factor for retrofit installations because process induced draft fans rarely have significant excess capacity.
