Industrial wet air scrubbers provide air pollution control

Wet air scrubbers are considered to be an air treatment technology that enables to remove particulate pollutants from gaseous streams, therefore, performing air pollution control. Wet scrubbers help fight dust, volatile organic compound, and volatile inorganic compounds.  The working principle of wet air scrubbers reminds showers because they wash and absorb the particulate pollutants by...

Pollution control systems for the prediction of burning areas

The pollution control system, that can detect crop burning applying satellite data, allows predicting air pollution levels for the next 72 hours. The air pollution control system has been already tested by the Union Ministry of Earth Sciences in Delhi that is likely to burn crop residue on a current-day making regional air quality worse....

Need for coatings to protect wet scrubber systems

Although the use of stainless steel and GRP in scrubbers provides quality, they still require coatings for some areas, for example, discharge nozzle to mitigate corrosion. It is planned to install scrubber systems at about 4.000 ship vessels (most of them are open-loop scrubbers) next year to meet the requirements of the 2020 sulfur cap...

Working principle of baghouse dust collectors

Air treatment devices are widely used in industry for accurate cleaning of ventilation air from dust particles, as well as for industrial and sanitary cleaning of gas emissions. Baghouse dust collectors are regarded as the most widespread in the industry for dry air treatment of gas emissions from impurities. The baghouse dust collector for ventilation...

Strict air pollution control in Jakarta

This week the administration of Jakarta city starts to provide the extension of the air pollution control policy in order to improve the poor air quality in the capital. The thing is that Jakarta is considered to be a city with one of the worst air quality in the world, thus, Jakarta and its satellite...

Efficient scrubbing systems for fertilizer industry

Recently the agricultural plant opportunities have been improved due to the additional process units that allow updating the production and quality of fertilizers, resulting in the requirement for effective air pollution control of toxic emissions from fertilizer industries. Thus, the novel scrubbing technology makes it possible to achieve the lowest ever urea dust emissions at...

Air pollution control promotes the reduction of crime rate

At the present time, it is a well-known fact that air pollution is considered to be one of the reasons that lead people to a slow death. According to the World Health Organization, poor level of air quality caused by air pollution (both outdoor and household one) is responsible for the deaths of about 7...

Scrubbing system technology for marine application

Scrubbing systems (or exhaust gas cleaning systems) are considered to be the best air treatment devices that are able to take away particulate matters and dangerous components, for example, sulfur (SOx) and nitrogen (NOx) oxides from the exhaust gases resulting from combustion processes in ship engines to carry out air pollution control. The main scrubbing...

Air pollution control for the risk elimination to a human body

The term “air pollution” is used for the name of tiny particles and gases in the air that provoke crucial harm to a human body during breathing them in. For example, gases like nitrogen dioxide, ozone, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide particulate matters or PM, as well as polluted air (both human and natural origin),...

Scrubbing systems for combustion processes

Numerous undesirable products are produced in the result of fuel combustion processes. Thus, flue gases include carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, acids and aerosolized metal oxides that cause poor air quality, and consequently, air pollution. Nonetheless, the majority of electric carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, acids, and aerosolized metal...
