Ammonia is a colorless gas made of nitrogen and hydrogen with a strong and distinguishable odor that occurs naturally in air, soil, and water and is also a by-product of the normal biological processes of humans and animals.
Ammonia is poisonous if inhaled in great quantities and irritates the eyes, nose, and throat in lesser amounts.
Ammonia Scrubbers remove pollutants via a chemical reaction as opposed to Particulate Scrubbers which inject liquid into the gas stream. Ammonia Scrubbers have proven to be very effective at removing the ammonia from exhaust streams using this method.
Ammonia Scrubber Systems
Manufacturers in the Chemical Industry are required by law to reduce or eliminate their ammonia gas emissions. Turn to Pollution Systems for reliable, top-quality Ammonia Scrubbers that will provide outstanding performance with minimal maintenance.
What IS an Ammonia Scrubber?
In the case of Ammonia Scrubbers, dilute sulfuric acid (H2SO4) is typically used to neutralize the ammonia. The resulting byproduct, a form of salt, is collected and removed through the wastewater blow-down, as the treated air stream is exhausted through the stack.
Efficiency is critical for Ammonia Scrub-bers. Due to its toxicity, ammonia gas is a regulated compound that needs to be treated below established limits before it is released into the atmosphere.
Ammonia Scrubber inside a Processing Facility
For Ammonia Scrubbers to work properly, they must fit the application at hand. A number of variables can be involved, including:
- The presence of other chemicals or particulates in the exhaust stream
- The temperature and flow rate of the waste stream
- The initial concentration of the ammonia in the waste stream
