Consequences of weak air pollution control

Even though process technology is developing quickly, and air treatment policy is advanced, manufacturing still affects industrial air pollution. Previously, the number of factories was pretty small, their current increase leads to crucial levels of pollution becoming a significant worldwide problem. To be more precise, industrial air pollution is any form of pollution caused by...

Wet air scrubbers vs. water wash-down fume cupboards

Wet air scrubbers or fume scrubbers are air treatment systems that include a bed of plastic 3D shapes over which nozzles spray a fine solution. These scrubbers offer a maximum surface area for fumes to catch as the exhaust emissions go through them. Then a mist eliminator of scrubber systems compiles the vapor from the...

Benefits of wet air scrubbers for industries

Air pollution control technology requires careful attention to industrial scrubber systems. The thing is that an industrial scrubber is an air treatment device that uses solids or liquids for its operation to take away particulate pollutants and odors from exhaust streams. To be more precise, scrubber systems offer the following benefits to treat gas exhaust...

Air pollution control of industries: ways of prevention

The constant growth in demand for manufactured items leads to the urgent necessity of serious air pollution control for manufacturers. The thing is that industrial manufacturing and the construction industry are the largest polluters and these processes require proper air treatment measures. It should be noted that volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs),...

Wet scrubbers for limestone plants

A new chemical solution has been recently developed and it promotes limestone reactivity and SO2 removal in wet air scrubbers for the air treatment process. The thing is that this scrubber technology allows for decreasing slurry recirculating offering operational and maintenance cost savings. It should be noted that the chemical solution supposes the use of...

Ionizing wet air scrubbers for industrial treatment

The ionizing type of scrubber system is an air treatment device that allows for catching and taking away gases and particulate pollutants from airstreams of industrial processes. Herewith, these wet scrubbers can simultaneously treat both noxious gases and particulates. Thus, wet air scrubbers provide the solution to air pollution control of the environment overcoming the...

How wet air scrubbers help to decrease air pollution

Air pollution control remains the main task around the world. This is the reason why scrubbers are very attractive for companies as a tool against various emissions. For example, wet air scrubbers apply a special scrubbing liquid or just water to catch chemical and particulate pollutants from emissions and remove them. Wet scrubbers are widely...

Wet air scrubbers: types and operating principles

A wet scrubber is an air treatment filter for purification from mechanical pollutants. Two main types of air pollution control equipment are used to solve the problems of air treatment from dust and gas emissions of industrial enterprise – dry or wet scrubbers for capturing and removing solid particulate pollutants.  Dry scrubber systems of inertial,...

What are better scrubbers or low-sulfur fuels?

It is a well-known fact that the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) confirmed that the sulfur content in marine fuel should be at least 0.5% by January 1, 2020. Thus, shipowners have two options: to install air treatment devices on their ships or use fuel with low sulfur content. So what is better – the...

Types of pollution control scrubbers

Researchers distinguish three types of wet air scrubbers applied for the removal of particulate pollutants in the chemical industries providing proper air pollution control. The thing is that air treatment devices such as scrubber systems are considered to be essential for chemical process industries. To be more precise, wet scrubbers are devices for air pollution...
