Compact gas scrubber for storage tanks and laboratories

Because of its versatility and many application possibilities, the gas scrubber is one of the most used techniques for air purification and odor control. A tank vent scrubber is a mini version of a gas or air scrubber, specifically for smaller flow rates. Read more about the operation of a gas scrubber.

In short, a scrubber is a packed column in which the polluted air stream is brought into contact with a cleaning liquid. The harmful components are removed from the gas and absorbed into the liquid.

Compact gas scrubbers for tank vents en laboratories

A tank vent scrubber is a small gas scrubber, especially for the loading of chemicals in storage tanks. A lab scrubber is a compact small gas scrubber for the treatment of small air flows, such as from laboratories. This gas scrubber hardly takes up one square meter of floor space, but offers sufficient capacity to efficiently treat these smaller gas flows.

Notwithstanding, these compact gas scrubbers are fully customized. The gas scrubbers are adapted according to the binding emission limits. The compact gas scrubbers are executed in plastic or stainless steel. This is in function of the components present in the air or the customer’s wishes.

What are the advantages of gas scrubbers?

  • relatively simple and well controllable
  • low energy consumption
  • compact and space-saving
  • predictable and guaranteed efficiency
  • high removal efficiency
  • maintenance-friendly
  • versatile, used in many industrial sectors

In which industries can tankscrubbers be used?

  • tank storage and transfer of liquids in the chemical industry and logistics
  • tankcleaning
  • waste collection, waste treatment, waste recycling
  • agroindustrial and food industry
  • petfoods, animal feeds, production of feed ingredients
  • all industries which have atmospheric storage tanks

When are laboratory scrubbers the best choice?

Lab scrubbers can be used in all laboratories where chemicals are used. After extraction out of the premises, the polluted air needs purification, before emission.

Which components can be removed?

Just like the bigger version, these compact gas scrubbers (cross- of counterflow) can be used to separate components such as:

  • H2S (hydrogen sulfide)
  • NH3 (ammonia)
  • HCl (hydrochloric acid)
  • SO2 (sulfur dioxide)
  • R-HS (mercaptans or thiols)
  • CH2O (formaldehyde)
  • amines
  • phenol
  • HNO3 (nitric acid)
  • NOx (nitrogen oxide)
  • EO (ethylene oxide)
