An economical range of standard bulk tank vent scrubbing systems designed to minimise environmental nuisance from the static storage and handling of fuming chemicals.
The SB2 range is designed for pumped discharges and static storage only.
The SB4 range is designed for pumped discharges and static storage - particularly for Ammonia applications.
The SB30 range is designed for pressurised tanker deliveries and static storage.
Typical applications include hydrochloric acid, Nitric acid and ammonia.
Each scrubber model is available either as a 'once through' type where water is used as the scrubbing liquor - producing dilute solutions which may in some instances be disposed of through the site drainage system subject to the normal approvals.
The alternative recirculation type scrubbers (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.
All Forbes fume scrubbers are light and easy to install. Construction is almost entirely from plastics materials which are corrosion-free and require virtually no maintenance.
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 a control timer unit to intermittently activate the scrubbing liquor circulation to keep the scrubbing media wetted during static storage conditions.
