Wet scrubbers include a variety of devices that remove pollutants from gas streams by a dispersed liquid. The scrubbing liquid performs this separation by dissolving, trapping, or chemically reacting with the contaminant. The difference in the design of various scrubbers is preliminary due to the mechanism by which the liquid is dispersed.
- Ability to handle high temperatures and moisture
- collecting flammable and explosive dusts safely
- Flue gases are cooled, resulting in smaller overall size of equipment
- Neutralizing corrosive gases
- Removing both gases and particulate matter
