Multi-Stage Scrubbing System Packed Bed Scrubbers

Multi-Stage Scrubbing Systems

Complete scrubbing solutions for multi-pollutant emissions reduction

Monroe Environmental can provide complete multi-stage air scrubbing systems for a wide variety of applications. High temperature and volatile chemical processes often require a more complex, customized air scrubbing solution than what a simple packed tower scrubber or venturi particulate scrubber can provide.

Air Pollution Control Expertise

In many cases, several technologies must be integrated together to provide adequate removal and treatment efficiencies. Monroe’s experience includes the engineering and fabrication of customized multi-stage scrubbers utilizing the following equipment:

Scrubbing Systems for Chemical and Compound Reclamation

Contaminants formed in these processes are frequently highly corrosive, hazardous, and/or difficult to remove. Removal often requires contaminant incineration at temperatures exceeding 1,500°F. Through proper quenching and gas conditioning techniques, Monroe can provide reclamation of costly chemicals and compounds contained within the off-gasses.

Multiple Packed Bed Scrubbing Systems

For some applications, multiple Packed Bed Scrubbers in series provide the best contaminant removal solution. This type of scrubbing system is common when there is a high pollutant loading or when removal efficiencies greater than 99.9% are required. Having multiple scrubbing stages also allows the use of different scrubbing solutions within a single scrubbing system for removal of different contaminates within the same air/gas stream.
