Wet Gas Scrubbers
Landfill or Anaerobic Fermentation (Composting)
Wet Gas Scrubbers are expressly designed to ensure high efficiency siloxane is removed from biogases produced in landfill or anaerobic fermentation processes.
How our Wet Gas Scrubbers Work
Contaminated gas enters the wet scrubber from the top of a small tower where it meets the chilled and re-circulated atomised scrubbing fluid pumped from the collection basin.
This action improves scrubbing efficiency by both direct contact and thermal diffusion. The gas and the scrubbing fluid then exit the scrubbing tower through a collection basin where the impurities settle. This design avoids mechanical shock and wear.
The second tower removes excess moisture that could be detrimental to the combustion process.
A flocculent may be introduced into the basin to increase settlement, while the basin itself is equipped with a purge system to allow continuous operation.
Our Wet Gas Scrubbers can handle both variable gas flow rates and variable contaminant levels - especially valuable in landfill gas applications.
D&L Diesels Wet Gas Scrubbers ensure uniform mixing between the gas and scrubbing fluid at any gas flow rate - without affecting performance.
A purer combustion gas results in:
- Improved performance
- Reduced maintenance intervals
- Longer oil life
