Jet scrubbers

Properties and applications of jet scrubbers

Properties:

  • no fixtures
  • self-priming
  • co-current operation of gas and scrubbing liquid
  • flow rate fluctuation up to 1:8 permissible
  • separation efficency 2-5 transfer units
  • short contact time
  • insensitive to caking and incrustations
  • low foam formation (when using VUM separators)
  • horizontal and vertical gas supply can be integrated into pipelines
  • low space requirement
  • variable (length, diameter, design etc.)
  • cost-effective
  • various materials possible, e.g. thermoplastics, GFK (also with liner), stainless steel, steel with liner (rubber coating), special materials (alloy, enamel), etc.

Possible applications for jet scrubbers:

  • direct cooling
  • Pre-saturation (quench head may be necessary)
  • physical absorption
  • Chemisorption with fast reaction or in combination with reaction distance (absorption with reaction, Ha < 3)
  • Dust separation up to 1μm
  • Condensation (also with high inert gas content)
  • Pre-separation with high solids loading
  • Combination of cooling, absorption and dust separation (e.g. for aerosol separation)
