Extremely effective against corrosive contaminants, with total energy use about 20% less than other vacuum wet scrubbers.
Controls H2SO4 fumes more efficiently than standard wet scrubbers. Fumes generated from steel pickling, hundreds of plating processes, aluminum anodizing and battery charging can be eliminated more efficiently and with less water and energy using the easy-to-install Fan/Separator. Fan/Separator scrubber sections and fans are made specifically to mate to each other – no fan undersizing. Fan outlet velocity is precisely controlled, so air crossing the rigid packed media never exceeds design parameters. The unit is extremely efficient in eliminating corrosive contaminants with a resulting low humidity exhaust stack. This combination of low humidity and high efficiency makes return air possible in certain specialized applications incorporating the closed-loop design. The Fan/Separators can operate in the 99% efficiency range, removing fumes containing sulfuric acid, plating exhaust and corrosive fumes from battery charging operations.
Fan/Separator requires less than 1/10 the water of most wet scrubbers and uses 20% less brake horsepower due to its unique design, which incorporates the fan as a centrifuge in the scrubbing process. Single units are available up to 100,000 cfm. UV-stabilized PVC or polypropylene are standard materials of construction; 304 and 316L stainless steel or mild steel are also available.
