The HEIL Series 760 Horizontal Crossflow Scrubber is a versatile unit, specifically designed to remove mists, gases, and particulates.
The gas stream enters the scrubber horizontally, perpendicular to the packed bed. A spray header located at the inlet initiates the gas/liquid contact and provides irrigation at the front of the packed bed. Additional spray headers located at the top of the bed provide complete irrigation and wetting.
As gas passes through the packing, entrained mists and particulates impinge on both the packing and liquid droplets and are rinsed from the bed. Simultaneously, soluble gas contaminants, such as HCL, H₂S, CL₂, are absorbed. The type of gas and the desired removal efficiency determine the bed depth, irrigation rate, and chemical requirement.
Once scrubbed, the gas then passes through a mist eliminator (HEILex EB 4-Bend Mist Eliminator Blades) to remove entrained droplets and is then exhausted into atmosphere.
HEIL Series 760 Horizontal Crossflow Scrubbers are ideally suited for service in a wide variety of applications in industries such as chemical, pulp and paper, steel and metal finishing, fertilizer, and pharmaceutical. In addition, the Series 760 Horizontal Crossflow has also been used successfully for the control of odors generated in water and wastewater treatment and laboratory exhausts.
The Series 760 Horizontal Crossflow Scrubbers are effective for the removal of corrosive and/or noxious fumes, and particulate matter (moderate loadings) 5-7 microns and larger.
Key factors for selecting the right crossflow scrubber for a specific application are the gas volume needing to be ventilated, type of contaminants, and the required efficiency.
HEIL engineers assist with the selection of crossflow scrubbers, as well as sizing and accessories, such as sump and fans to make a complete scrubber system. HEIL engineers also provide a specific quotation on the appropriate scrubber and/or system.
