Ammonia Gas Scrubber
Wet scrubbers remove pollutants by injecting liquid into the gas stream. In scrubbers that are designed to remove particulates (such as dust scrubbers), the particulate is captured by the water droplets before it is discharged through the exhaust stack. Chemical scrubbers are different; the liquid in question causes a chemical reaction that strips the chemical pollutant out of the waste stream. Manufacturers in the chemical industry are required by law to reduce or eliminate their ammonia gas emissions. Turn to Pollution Systems for reliable, top-quality ammonia scrubbers like Apzem Ammonia removal scrubber will provide outstanding performance with minimal maintenance.
In the case of ammonia scrubbers, dilute sulfuric acid is typically used to neutralize the ammonia. The resulting byproduct, a form of salt, is collected and removed through the wastewater blow down, as the treated air stream is exhausted through the stack.
Efficiency is critical for ammonia scrubbers. Due to its toxicity, ammonia gas is a regulated compound that needs to be treated below established limits before it is released into the atmosphere.
