Multi-Vane Particulate Scrubbers (MVS)

MVS Scrubbers can successfully treat industrial gas streams with moisture content and high temperatures by using multiple throats in the scrubber design.

How Does a Multi-Vane Scrubber Work?

High-velocity, dirty particle-laden air enters the scrubber’s multi-vane chamber as recycled scrubbing fluid injects from the sump. The impact of the air with water forms a fine mist cloud of water with entrained particulate. The mist cloud exits the chamber and is subjected to intense cyclonic action downstream. The dirty droplets separate from the particle-free airstream due to cyclonic motion, agglomeration, and gravity. The droplets gather near the scrubber walls and then pull into the integral sump due to gravity, where a portion discharges while the rest is recycled. A system fan pulls the clean air out through the stack.

The illustration shown represents a typical Multi-Vane Scrubber system.

Diagram of system internal structure shows how dirty industrial exhaust enters the MVS and collides with scrubbing fluid to form droplets prior to being forced through multiple vanes. The vanes force the particulate matter from the droplets, and the clean air exits out of the stack

Benefits of Multi-Vane Scrubbers: Lower Energy, High Reliability

Pollution Systems’ MVS Scrubbers are guaranteed to meet removal requirements with lower energy and higher reliability than many other air pollution control options as there are few moving parts – a fan and a recirculating pump. The high water/air velocities and cyclonic action within the scrubbers resist fouling, making these systems inherently self-cleaning and easy to maintain. Our automated controls package allows the MVS to start up and operate with minimal operator interaction. Pollution Systems’ MVS system can remove particulate (such as PM2.5) at your permitted levels or above 99% from the entire flow of a collection system.

Multi-Vane Scrubber Applications

Pollution Systems’ Multi-Vane Scrubbers maintain consistent, high on-stream performance and are ideal for exhaust streams that contain moisture or sticky particulate. More common industrial applications of MVS Scrubbers include:
