Mist eliminators, or demisters, play an essential role in removing mists and other liquids generated during industrial and manufacturing processes. During these processes, droplets of water and other molecules may become trapped in the air or gas, resulting in entrapment. As environmental protection regulations have increased, the use of mist eliminators has risen to meet … Continue reading “3 Types of Mist Eliminators for Wet Scrubbers”

High concentrations of ammonia and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in wastewater pose a significant risk to the environment. That’s why so many industries have turned to wastewater stripping techniques to remove these harmful substances from their water streams. There are two primary types of wastewater stripping processes — air stripping and steam stripping. Though both … Continue reading “Comparing Air and Steam Stripping”

Companies in various industrial settings utilize scrubbers to lower air pollution by scrubbing away harmful gases and particulates in industrial exhausts. Wet scrubbers are the most commonly used type of scrubber, designed to use liquid to wash pollutants out of a gas stream. Any scrubber will eventually need to be replaced, especially if it’s not … Continue reading “How to Know When It’s Time to Replace Your Scrubber”

Wet and dry scrubbers both work to reduce air pollution by treating exhaust gases. However, there are differences between the mechanisms each type of scrubber uses and thepollutants they best neutralize. Choosing which type of scrubber to invest in for your air pollution control requires knowing how these systems work and their pros and cons. … Continue reading “Wet vs. Dry Industrial Scrubbers for Air Pollution”

For a high-efficiency wet scrubber to perform as anticipated, it must have the correct setup and maintenance. However, having the proper structure is not the only aspect that affects performance. Issues can still appear after a time of efficient operation. Eight common factors can influence the efficiency and performance of a wet scrubber. Through troubleshooting … Continue reading “8 Factors That Affect Wet Scrubber Performance”

Minimizing environmental impact is a crucial priority for many industries, for legal, ethical and practical reasons. While air pollutants can be harmful, their effective removal is possible with a wet air scrubber. Wet scrubbers offer a contained, efficient solution for eliminating unwanted air contaminants, making wet scrubbers a great option for air pollution control. They can … Continue reading “How Wet Scrubbers Work to Remove Air Pollution “

Separating liquid constituents is an important procedure in industrial processes. From petrochemical processing to wastewater treatment to pharmaceutical manufacturing, having a safe and effective method for removing compounds is important to ensure a clean and environmentally safe byproduct. Many different liquid-liquid separation methods exist — each offers pros and cons, as well as applications they’re best suited … Continue reading “The Difference Between Distillation, Stripping and Extraction Columns”

For decades, industrial scrubbers have provided an effective means of purifying exhaust streams produced in manufacturing plants, power stations and other industrial facilities, and modern scrubbers can remove pollutants more effectively than ever before. By using an industrial scrubber that offers the right capabilities, you can keep harmful pollutants from entering the atmosphere. In this … Continue reading “The Major Types of Industrial Scrubbers”

Selecting a Suitable Structured Packing Facilities like processing plants, offshore drilling locations and refineries often perform chemical separation functions, also called mass transfer functions. In these functions, liquids such as gasoline and water are purified of contaminants. This process is accomplished by pumping liquids into a scrubber column, where the liquid is separated from pollutants … Continue reading “Selecting a Suitable Structured Packing”

How to Implement a Successful Refinery Safety Plan Refinery safety plan best practices include establishing elements required in the plan, determining enforcement and creating the program. Each refinery has unique needs. Therefore, every safety plan must conform to the specific requirements of the site. Additionally, safety plans need regular reevaluation to ensure they remain up-to-date … Continue reading “How to Implement a Successful Refinery Safety Plan”
