PolexTM PARTICULATE SCRUBBER MODEL WS4500

Particulate scrubber

Description
The Polex range of particulate scrubbers is designed for the filtering ofhygroscopic dusts, explosive dusts and dusts from environments wheremoisture is present. Conventional dry-type filters often require regularmaintenance in these environments. A wet scrubber system however canrun continuously without blocking. They can then simply be cleaned byhosing out through the access doors.

Operating Principal
The polluted air first enters the scrubber through a 90o bend and is interceptedby an array of water droplets. The air is accelerated as it entersthe scrubber by a venturi plate to increase the number of collisions withthe water droplets. Water is recirculated from the water tank to the sprayjets. Some of the particles drop out into the water tank below at thisstage. The remainder of the combined air-water mixture travels through tothe perforated baffle. The water that passes through here produces adam of water which acts as another stage of filtration. Finally, the airwatermixture enters a mist eliminator to remove any moisture present inthe air stream. Sludge forms in the collection tank below.
