Due to its reactivity and oxidizing properties, sulfuric acid is an explosive hazard within manufacturing processes. Our scrubbers will remove sulfur-based substances from your process emissions to keep your operations running smoothly.
Sulfuric acid is reactive and acts as a strong oxidizer that can enhance the combustion of other substances. Classified as a hazardous substance, facilities that emit sulfur-based substances such as sulfuric acid or sulfur dioxide must remove these toxic byproducts from their emissions.
Wet Scrubbers remove pollutants by injecting liquid into the gas stream; in Dust Scrubbers, the particulate is caught by water droplets, preventing it from escaping through the exhaust pipe. Chemical Scrubbers function differently – the liquid introduced into the gaseous waste stream causes chemical reactions that convert the pollutant(s) into a different chemical compound.
In the case of Sulfuric Acid Scrubbers, efficiency is critical due to the corrosive nature of sulfuric acid gas. Many Wet Sulfuric Acid Scrubbers utilize a multi-stage approach, first using a bed of packed media with recirculated liquid caustic (sodium hydroxide solution) which acts as a base to neutralize the acid, and finally using a mist eliminator to remove water vapor.
Wet Sulfuric Acid Scrubbers can vary widely in terms of size and design; several factors must be considered, including:
