How It Works
The diagrams below explain the operation of the V-tex® scrubber and V-tex® nozzle technology.
The V-tex® offers robust operation, using even dirty and solid-laden liquor streams, making it the scrubber of choice for arduous applications and where high availability, low maintenance operation is essential.
- High availability and minimal clean-out costs as no internals to foul
- Consistent, predictable mass- and heat-transfer rates provided by self-cleaning, non-clogging nozzle
- Low installation costs, especially when retrofitting into existing buildings, because of low height
- Smaller volumes of spent liquor to be sent to waste as V-tex® can scrub with viscous liquors and slurries
- High efficiency performance irrespective of gas flowrate means no narrow window of operation limiting your production cycles/span>
- Proven in a wide range of applications
- Opposed jet nozzle in centre of chamber
- Fine droplet spray pattern for high mass transfer
- Induced swirl from tangential gas inlet and central gas outlet
- Integral sump separated by lower chamber plate
- Droplet elimination by spray plate
V-tex® technology is widely used for challenging environments such as:
- Difficult scrubbing applications often with recovery and/or manufacture of saleable bi-product
- Stripping of contamination from liquor/slurries and recovery
- Condensing particularly when the gas/steam has suspended particulate
For applications where the scrubber height is important, such as pharmaceutical and microelectronics production, the V-tex® is able to fit on a single storey. The diagram shows an example of a packed tower and V-tex® scrubber both sized for 1,000 m3/hr and 99.5% removal of HCl.
