Wet air scrubbers against exhaust emissions

Air pollution is considered to be a major modern problem that is caused by motorized and factory activities. Therefore, increased pollutants lead to climate change and the greenhouse effect that is why it is highly recommended to perform air pollution control. The solution is the application of wet air scrubbers on a motor vehicle and industrial exhausts in order to decrease the emissions. 

The thing is that the air pollution caused by motor vehicles ( the main source of carbon monoxide). Herewith, fossil-fueled transportation is responsible for 50% of air pollution in cities. It should be noted that the exhaust emissions include CO and NOx resulting in the greenhouse effect that in turn, leads to global warming.

Wet scrubbers find wide application in the industry (in chimneys) to decrease such emissions as smoke, dust, and pollutant gases. Scrubber systems provide such properties as spray speed and flow that play a crucial role in the exhaust gas flow. These scrubbers allow catching and dissolve air pollutants into a liquid solution.

Thus, wet air scrubbers are regarded as an air treatment system for air pollution control that is used to chimneys in factories to decrease or take away smoke, dust, and pollutant gases caused by factory activities. Wet scrubbers help to reduce or treat industrial pollutant gas by employing liquid (or even simple water) into a pollutant flow, so the gas is caught by water resulting in the air treatment process.

The operating principle of wet scrubbers is based on the use of “liquid as a pollutant gas cleaner by applying high pressure to the liquid so that a spray occurs to catch the dirty gas.” It should be noted that incomplete combustion processes evoke pollutants and create CO2and HC.

Wet air scrubbers are perfect in the application as exhaust filters to decrease motor vehicle exhaust emissions and carbon monoxide gas fly. Additionally, scrubber systems are useful in the reduction of exhaust emissions in diesel engines. Nevertheless, it is necessary to pay careful attention to the following pieces of advice when you choose proper wet air scrubber:

  • The number of sprayers and sprayer diameter plays an important role, especially it is important for scrubbers for each variation given exhaust emissions, such as CO and HC have a significant decrease due to wet scrubbers. The thing is that the more sprayers and the diameter of the sprayer hole, the greater the emissions of HC flue gas, and the more CO2 is caught by the scrubber system.
  • For instance, the wet air scrubber with the number of sprayer 3 with a sprayer diameter of 200μm at 3000 rpm reduces the HC gas level to 11.53% while the CO2 gas concentration with the number of variation of 3 sprayers 200 μm sprayer diameter at 3000 rpm decreases the CO2 gas concentration by 1.04%.
