Wet Scrubbers are widely used by industries to maintain air quality at acceptable levels in areas where dust, smoke, and other contaminants are generated. Air Scrubbers purify air by a combination of centrifugal forces and mixing of water and contaminated air. As the air stream passes the baffles, the particulate is separated by a turbulent curtain of water created by high velocity air. The centrifugal force caused by the rapid changes in airflow direction forces the dust particles to penetrate the water droplets and become entrapped. The contaminated water is then removed from the airstream by mist filters. Dust, as sludge, settles to the collector bottom and the water is reused.
Canadian Air Systems Wet Scrubbers are specifically designed for safe collection of potentially explosive and volatile materials and are very effective in the capture of fine metal particles. They require less than half the pressure drop to accomplish the same or better degree of particulate removal while using half the water. Another feature is its ability to remove particulates and absorb gases in the same scrubbing stage. With no moving parts, nozzles, or chevrons, CAS air scrubbers are virtually maintenance free. Canadian Air Systems Wet Electrostatic Precipitators are used after scrubbers - to remove sub-micron particulates and acid gases.
CAS Wets Scrubbers have the following features:
- Direct Drive/Non-overloading Fan
- TEFC Motors, Single and Three Phase
- Interior Baffle Section
- Special Mist Filters
- Low Maintenance Design
- Industrial Enamel Coating
- Automatic Water Level Control
- Convenient Control Panels
Air Scrubbers Applications include:
- Dust and Contaminates particles removal from Sanding, Grinding, Polishing, and other
- Lighting and Electrical Enclosure Manufacturers
- Pharmaceutical Factories
- Milling, Refining, and Ceramics Foundries
- Plastic and Rubber manufacturing
- Chemical processing
Since CAS Air Scrubbers also meets OSHA regulations for dust removal machines located inside buildings, they can recirculate in-plant tempered air - to conserve energy.
