Siya Agarwal (3769529) writes "To remove various different types of pollutants from the stream of gases, a wet scrubber is made use of. Wet Scrubbers are used in furnaces, flue, or other such devices. These devices are heavily relied upon at facilities that process propane and other types of natural gases.This task is achieved with the help of a scrubbing liquid. In this process, the gas is moved through the liquid, allowing the gas to emerge in the process free of contaminants and pollutants which were present in them before going through the scrubber.
The clearing of contaminants can be achieved in various different ways based on the design of the wet scrubber. In one such process, the cleaning solution is sprayed upon the gas that does the job of attracting the heavier pollutants. In the process, they get disengaged from the gas and attached to the liquid. The contaminants are left behind once the gas is made to pass through the stream.
In another such design, a wet scrubber design that forces the gas through a pool of scrubbing fluid. On the approach of the spray, the contaminant collects the fluid and gets bounded by it. All this action occurs while the gas passes through the filtering action of the pool. Hence, we get a system that is free of dust particles and any other contaminants which hinder the efficiency of the system and the gases as well."
