A standard range of CO2 Degassing systems designed to reduce dissolved CO2 economically with proven technology.
Forbes Degassers operate on the principal of passing the water to be treated over a large surface area whilst blowing air against the flow. The resultant mass transfer of gas at the interface of the water and air removes the acid forming carbon dioxide.
Forbes process design is accomplished with the company?s own dedicated suite of software backed by substantial resources of knowledge and experience.
A design life of 20 years is achieved by the use of high quality plastics throughout the construction. Provided that water and air supplies are free from solid impurities, Forbes Degassers normally require no maintenance other than regular external inspection. Where practical, fans are sited at low level for ease of inspection and access to filters, if fitted.
Years of trouble free performance in the field have proven the essential reliability of Forbes Degassers. Corrosion free construction; simplicity of installation and setting up; dependable automatic controls all contribute to long, trouble free performance.
Forbes standard FD range covers flowrates from 4 M3/hour to 200 M3/hour. The units comprise a packed tower and integral sump with fan mounted. The sump is sized to give approximately 2 minutes retention time at the maximum flow.
Non standard designs are also available for water flows up to 1000 M3/hour as well as special designs (split flows, dual duty, heavy CO2 loads etc.). To enable us to evaluate your requirements and prepare a quotation, we will need the following information:
- Maximum & minimum water flow rate in M3/hr - Maximum expected CO2 content (if more than 200 ppm) - Anticipated water supply temperature - Details of any possible solids content
