Powder Separation

Scrubbers

The scrubbers are an efficient and effective technology to separate particles from gas by using a sprayed liquid.

The SiccaDania barcol scrubber is a wet scrubber using a scrubbing liquid to separate dust from a gas flow. The barcol scrubber is flexible in its design with regard to dust and gasses to be handled.

The barcol scrubber can be used wherever it is possible to wet dust particles in a gas stream with a sprayed liquid. For these applications, the combination of a scrubbing section with rods and a droplet collector gives a flexible scrubbing device that will guarantee a high efficiency for whichever process is required.

The separating efficiency and pressure drop of the scrubber are comparable to high-quality cyclones or venturi scrubbers.

The operation of the barcol scrubber is based on the close contact of the gas flow to be cleaned, with the scrubbing liquid. This is achieved by leading the high-speed gas flow through an arrangement of rods. The surface of these rods is moistened by spray nozzles.

Dust particles in the gas are being brought in contact with the liquid because of the turbulence created by the specially arranged rods. In this way, the dust particles are absorbed into the liquid. These liquid droplets with absorbed dust, are then separated into the droplet collector.

The scrubber part can be placed both horizontally as well as vertically. The drop collector must always be placed vertically.

The Barcol scrubber offers the following advantages:

  • High separating efficiency
  • Low energy costs
  • Low installation costs
  • Compact construction
  • Possible recirculation of spraying fluid for low-liquid use
  • Ability to tackle environmentally conscious processes
  • Little maintenance
  • Easy repairs of wear and tear parts
  • Versatile design
