This table is intented as a guide to common applications for the techniques listed. Variations may be applied in particular circumstances

Degassing towers are used to remove COfrom liquids. CO2 dissolved in the liquid is transferred from the liquid to the gas phase, using atmospheric air.

  • DEGASSING TOWERS – FD
  • DEGASSING TOWERS – NON STANDARD

Wet scrubbers remove contaminants from a gas stream by passing the stream through a packed structure which provides a large wetted surface area to induce intimate contact between the gas and the scrubbing liquor.

Stripping by packed tower aeration offers an effective and economical approach to many VOC contamination scenarios. Relatively high levels of many organic contaminants can be reduced to well below WHO target levels by the stripping process.

  • DEGASSING TOWERS – FD
  • DEGASSING TOWERS – NON STANDARD

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

  • SB2 & SB2R
  • SB30 & SB30R
  • SB4 & SB4R

Solvents, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other contaminants in the liquids or gas phase can be adsorbed onto activated carbon. The principle of adsorption is based on the highly porous structure of the granular carbon.
