Wet Scrubber

What are Wet Scrubbers?

Ducon Wet Scrubbers use variety of technological configurations to remove particulates and acid gases from exhaust flue gas stream. In a wet scrubber, the polluted gas stream is brought into contact with the scrubbing liquid, by spraying it with the liquid, and forcing it through a pool of liquid, or by some packing media  or trays, so as to remove the pollutants. Ducon Wet Scrubbers  are designed to collect particulate matter and/or gaseous pollutants with over 99.99% efficiency.

Ducon, known for its patented dynamic wet scrubbers which  include the UW-3 & UW-4  Dynamic Wet Scrubbers. 

The Ducon UW-4 Dynamic Wet Scrubber is for use in applications involving heavy dust loads, and abrasive materials.

Where heavy dust loads and large particulate have to be removed The Multivane Centrifugal wet Scrubber is particularly suited for applications involving heavy dust loads and large particulate.

Wet Scrubber UW-3

Type UW-3 This Ducon industrial wet scrubber is compact with built-in wet fan and features dust collection efficiency over 99.9% in minimum space with low water requirements. Rugged construction virtually eliminates maintenance problems.

Wet Scrubber UW-4

TYPE UW-4 This Ducon Patented UW-4 Wet Scrubber is used for particulate control and is a maintenance free unit, complete with integral wet fan, achieving high efficiency with medium pressure drop in applications involving heavy dust loads, and abrasive materials.

Wet Scrubber Advantages

  • 99.9% particulate + collection efficiency in 1 to 2-micron range
  • Achieves 0.006 gr/SCFD outlet loadings
  • Low water rates (2 to 3 gal/1000 saturated acfm)
  • Ideal for combined gas absorption and particulate control
  • Integral self-cleaning wet fan
  • Low pressure drop
  • Rugged construction & maintenance-free

Multivane Centrifugal Wet Scrubber

The Ducon Multivane Centrifugal wet Scrubber is particularly suited for applications involving heavy dust loads and large particulate. This unit operates with centrifugal action between gas stream and liquid and can be designed with either spin vanes or spray manifolds for liquid distribution. High efficiencies are obtained for particles in the 1 to 8-micron range.
