Wet Scrubbers

Wetted packed towers are the simplest and most commonly used approaches to gas scrubbing.

Wet scrubbers remove contaminants from a gas stream by passing the stream through a packed structure.

The contaminant is absorbed into or reacted with the scrubbing liquor.

The packing of the tower is normally a proprietary loose fill random packing designed to encourage dispersion of the liquid flow without tracking while providing maximum contact area for the ‘mass transfer’ interaction.

They can be designed for very high efficiencies with relatively low capital and running costs.

Venturi scrubbing is a most effective technique for the removal of particulates from a gas stream, even down to sub-micron size. 

  • Brings together scrubbing liquor and gas stream within venturi throat
  • Cost effective and efficient scrubbing technique
  • Often used in combination unit
  • Dust Control
  • Removal of Fine Particulates
  • Mist / Aerosol

Wetted packed towers are the simplest and most commonly used approaches to gas scrubbing.

  • Large wetted area method to remove contaminants from gas flow
  • Uses loose-filled random packing
  • Low running costs and capital investment
  • Odour Control
  • Removal of Chemical Fumes

In a fluidised bed scrubber the typical single bed of a packed tower structure is replaced by two or more shallow beds.

  • Compact unit size with narrow diameter
  • Minimal aggregation of particulates
  • Not usually suitable for odour control
  • Dust Control
  • Removal of Chemical Fumes

Our extensive ‘in-house’ capabilities include mechanical engineering design along with chemical process design. Our customers can be confident that Forbes’ wet scrubbers surpass all safety and environmental recommendations.

From our UK-based factories we also fabricate thermoplastic storage tanks, along with pipework, monitoring gauges, filler stations and everything else required for the safe bulk storage of hazardous and fuming chemicals.

Forbes is able to offer a full range of on-site services to suit all budgets. From the simple offloading and positioning of tanks and equipment to a full project managed turnkey services.
