An economical range of standard bulk tank vent scrubbing systems designed to minimise environmental nuisance from the static storage and handling of fuming chemicals.

All Forbes fume scrubbers are light and easy to install. Construction is almost entirely from polypropylene (PP) which is corrosion-free and require virtually no maintenance.

Alternative Recirculation Type Scrubbers

Models suffixed with the letter R incorporate an integral sump tank with recirculation pump, facilitating the use of neutralizing solutions as scrubbing liquors (e.g. caustic for hydrochloric acid fumes). The scrubbing liquor needs regular monitoring and careful disposal.

Standard recirculation units are fitted with magnetic drive, seal-less, low maintenance pumps. Each scrubber unit is issued with a comprehensive installation, operation and maintenance manual.

All scrubbers can be supplied with an adjustable control timer unit to intermittently activate the scrubbing liquor circulation to keep the scrubbing media wetted during static storage conditions.
