What is a Dry Scrubber?
A Dry Scrubber, or dry scrubber system, is a type of pollution control equipment that is designed to remove harmful gases and particulates from industrial exhaust streams. Dry scrubbers are primarily used to abate acidic gases, like those associated with acid rain.
What is the difference between a Wet and Dry Scrubber?
When flue gas is sent through the system, the wet industrial scrubber sprays this gas with a special fluid that reacts mainly with the heavier contaminants that are present in the gas. On the other hand, a dry industrial scrubber sprays numerous dry reagents onto the exhaust stream.
How do Wet and Dry Scrubbers reduce air pollution?
Eductor scrubbers are designed to remove soluble gases and particulate by inducing a gas flow using high-pressure liquid focused into a Venturi throat, which eliminates the need for a separate exhaust fan or blower to transport the contaminated gas stream to the filtration device.
Do Scrubbers remove CO2?
A carbon dioxide scrubber is a piece of equipment that absorbs carbon dioxide (CO2). It is used to treat exhaust gases from industrial plants or from exhaled air in life support systems such as rebreathers or in spacecraft, submersible craft, or airtight chambers.
