Wet Scrubbers are effective air pollution control devices for removing particles and/or gases from industrial exhaust streams. A Wet Scrubber operates by introducing the dirty gas stream with a scrubbing liquid – typically water. Particulate or gases are collected in the scrubbing liquid. Wet Scrubbers are generally the most appropriate air pollution control device for collecting both particulate and gas in a single system.
Pollution Systems offers a variety of Wet Scrubber systems specifically designed for your process application. Many important operating variables are considered when evaluating the size and type of scrubber for any specific application, and your deadline is always a factor in our responsiveness.
We also offer aftermarket support for Wet Scrubbers in need of repair or retrofit. Our dedicated technical services division, Drizgas Services, can assist with the make and model of any industrial Wet Scrubber system.
