C-V Scrubber creates positive centrifugal action to spin droplets from gas Minimal maintenance because of wall mounted sprays .no internal baffles.. The liquid moves by gravity to the bottom cone drain. plates or vanes to separate entrained droplets from gas stream..wall mounting of large orifice non-clogging nozzles offer troublefree operation. and the cleaned gases leave the scrubber at the top outlet. The remainder of entrained droplets are removed when the accelerated gases enter the spin zone. The scrubbed gases proceed along the involute where the bulk of the liquid is separated.AirPol C-V Cyclonic Scrubber

.positive entrainment separation in involute section reduces scrubber height and space requirements Trouble-free operation as there are no internals . Spray nozzles have individual shut off valves for servicing without interruption of scrubber operation Low pressure drop design .concentrated spray zone assures more efficient scrubbing than the conventional cyclonic design Low equipment costs because of reduced height ..The Thermax .
The contaminated gas is brought into intimate contact with curtains of liquid spray directed at right angles to the gas flow after it enters the involute section.and the advantages
Higher efficiency due to Involute Gas Inlet ..crushing and screening
this outperforms any scrubber available in the market today.

How it works. rubber-lined steel.
The raw gas (dust laden) enters axially from the venturi top.a compact unit using multiple scrubber principles with lower pressure drop. Clean gas swirls upward to gas exit at the separator top. FRP. Liquid (with entrapped particulates) drains via bottom cone to the pump for recycle back to venturi and to bleed for disposal. can accept recycled slurry m low pressure requirement at header. alloy steel. The gas/liquid mixture enters the separator spin zone. The mixture now proceeds downward into the throat forming a collision zone. The diverging section helps in pressure drop regain. either in the form of a separate vessel or as a section of the separator.stops gas spin and straightens the flow before it enters the stack Wide variety of options with suitable materials of construction .Venturi scrubber systems are often combined with a subsequent acid gas absorber.000 m3/hr) Impactor . hence power saving
Adjustable throat helps in maintaining constant pressure drop (and hence constant removal efficiency) at fluctuating gas volumes Long diverging section in venturi below throat promotes extended contact between particulates and liquid and increases pressure drop regain Liquid reservoir in the “flooded elbow” at venturi bottom prevents abrasion of metal surfaces Anti . while the scrubbing liquid is fed in tangentially through straight pipes.
