Wet Particulate Scrubbers

For gas streams containing acid gas and particulate, the B&W MEGTEC’s Wet Atomizing Scrubber controls these contaminants in a single system with minimal pressure drop, low water usage and low maintenance.

We have considerable experience with wet particulate scrubbers for separating relatively coarse particulate from a flue-gas stream at affordable pressure drops. For applications with high particulate loading, the venturi scrubber offers constant pressure drop, which equates to constant removal efficiency. A variety of venturi scrubber designs are available to suit a wide range of applications, including hot or corrosive gases and abrasive or sticky dust.

Our reference plants include many industrial process operations including waste-to-energy, hazardous waste combustion, chemical, mining and metallurgical applications.

To meet stringent requirements for fine particulate, heavy metals and opacity control, these wet particulate scrubbers or acid gas absorbers are often combined with a wet electrostatic precipitator.

We also offer pilot equipment rentals and test programs designed to optimize full-scale equipment performance, customized for your specific application.
