PKG Equipment Inc. Designs Scrubber to Remove 99.9% of Nitric Acid from Exhaust

Rochester, NY - This horizontal scrubber was constructed of ½" thick type I PVC. The scrubber was designed to remove 99.9% of nitric acid from the air stream at 20,000 CFM. Separation efficiency was acquired through an 8' bed of wetted polypropylene packing and an additional 2' bed for mist elimination. The bed was wetted with a caustic solution by twelve spray nozzles fed by two 5 HP vertical seal-less pumps. Wash down water was monitored by a pH control and maintained by metering sodium hydroxide into the wash down water. Five access points, and removable inlet and outlet sections, facilitate in the maintenance of internals.
