A scrubber is a piece of pollution control equipment that removes harmful gases and particles from industrial exhaust streams. There are a few different options, when considering a scrubber:
Wet scrubber: A wet scrubber works by funneling the exhaust stream through the bottom of a packed tower and then it passes through an engineered packing, where a solution from specialized nozzles is sprayed counter-current to the exhaust stream flow.
Dry Scrubber: A dry scrubber works by combining carefully chosen chemical reagents with the exhaust stream at incredibly high speeds, that react with or absorb the compounds in the stream.
Ammonia Scrubber: An ammonia scrubber is a specialized scrubber, that works by funneling the ammonia laden exhaust stream through the bottom of a packed tower, which sprays a solution from specialized nozzles.
Venturi Scrubber: A Venturi Scrubber is a type of pollution control equipment that is used to remove contaminated particles from gaseous exhaust streams. A type of Wet Scrubber, the Venturi Scrubber uses Venturi technology, which has been used for over 100 years.
