Product Description

Hydrogen Chloride scrubber is a wet type scrubber that is used for the removal of hydrochloric acid. Hydrogen chloride is a pungent gas which is colorless and corrosive. Though it is not flammable it is toxic. Hence it must be removed from industrial processes that involves in the emission of hydrochloric acid as a resultant product.


When dissolving HCl gas in water Hydrochloric acid is produced. Recycled water can be used in HCl scrubbers. Usually the waste water stream contains a week Hydrochloric acid solution. It can be more efficiently scrubbed using an alkaline solution. Mostly Sodium Hydroxide is used . Sodium chloride is produced as byproduct.
