Wet Scrubbers are the pollution control devices usually installed in the path of the flue gases to extract Sulphur compounds or oxides of sulphur such as Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) and Ash particles.
- This gas/liquid mixture passes through a flooded elbow, and then enters the entrainment separator through a tangential inlet.
- Centrifugal action removes the heavy wetted particles from the gas stream.
- As an alternate, when very large diameter separators are required, the liquid is separated by passing the stream through a mist eliminator baffle.
- The dust/liquid mixture is discharged from the separator bottom drain and the cleaned gas leaves through the top of the separator.
