Remove pollutants from the gas stream
Thermal oxidation solutions are the core of an ecosystem that destroys pollutants and allows manufacturers to stay compliant with government regulation. For many businesses, the process of preventing VOCs from escaping into the environment takes place before and after emissions make their way to a thermal oxidizer.
To ensure optimal operation in a total clean air solution, there must be multiple systems in place to share the burden of removing and converting VOCs and HAPs to harmless air and water vapor.
Prepackaged and skid-mounted wet scrubbers
Wet scrubbers control acid gas emissions resulting from the oxidation of halogenated organic compounds. These systems work by funneling exhaust through the bottom of a unit where it passes up through engineered packing and a liquid scrubbing solution is sprayed to absorb the pollutants from the gas. The liquid that contains the pollutants then drops down into a sump where it can be collected and disposed of.
In some cases, water may be an effective scrubbing solution, but in others, a modified solvent may be necessary. Scrubbers are cost-effective and, when dealing with organic pollutants, maintenance needs are often very low.
Scrubbing systems are an important part of capturing and eliminating pollutants, but by themselves cannot meet regulation standards. Thankfully, these systems are typically not capital intensive and require little install time.
Nestec scrubbing systems
Since 1999, NESTEC has supplied prepackaged and skid-mounted wet scrubbing systems to the chemical processing, pharmaceutical, acid-synthesis and agri-business industries, as well as anywhere else where halogens or sulfurs are present in process chemistry. The company evaluates the needs of each manufacturer to find the most conducive ways to install these systems and integrates them into the oxidizer control panel, making their control easy and centralized.
