Bulk Tank Vent Scrubbers

Designed to reduce the environmental problems caused by the static storage and handling of fuming chemicals, such as Hydrochloric Acid.

TANK VENT SCRUBBING

Fume scrubbing is an efficient and effective way of dealing with emissions that result from the storage and delivery of fuming chemicals.

Forbes standard fume scrubbers are proven technology, easy to install, corrosion resistant and require virtually no maintenance. We supply six standard models.

Custom-designed scrubbers can also be supplied. For advice on selecting the right model for your requirements please get in touch.

Standard fume scrubber designed for the static storage of fuming chemicals and their pumped discharge.

  • For gas flow rates up to 4m³/min
  • Available as 'once through' or recirculation type
  • All polypropylene construction for corrosion-free operation (other materials available on request)

Static storage of fuming chemicals such as:

  •  Ammonia
  • Hydrochloric acid

Not suitable for pressurised air deliveries above 7 PSI from air pressure tanker discharge or pressurised Flo-bin system.

Once Through Scrubbing

Water is used as the scrubbing liquor, producing dilute waste solutions. In some instances these may be disposed of through the site drainage system subject to the normal approvals.

Recirculation Scrubbers

Incorporate an integral sump with recirculation pump. The scrubbing liquor can either be water or a neutralising solution such as caustic soda for hydrochloric acid fumes.

Standard fume scrubber designed especially for pressurised tanker deliveries and static storage.

High-efficiency technology handles the surge of ‘pad air’.

  • For gas flow rates up to 30m³/min
  • Pressurised tanker deliveries up to 30 PSI.
  • All polypropylene construction for corrosion-free operation​ (other materials available on request)

Suitable for the static storage of fuming chemicals and reduction of fumes discharged during pressurised tanker deliveries such as:

  • Hydrochloric acid
  • Nitric acid
  • Ammonia

Once Through Scrubbing
