Scrubber Separator System

Principle of Operation

The Fig. 7014 Scrubber Separator System is a complete, single-stage scrubbing system combining a Fig. 7010 Ejector Venturi Gas Scrubber and a Fig. 7040 Separator. This air pollution control scrubber system utilizes the ejector-venturi principle to entrain and scrub large volumes of gas containing fumes, vapors, noxious gases, dusts, odors or particulates, and vent clean, dry gas to the atmosphere. The Fig. 7014 Scrubber Separator System is capable of providing efficiencies as high as 99% or more in a single stage system and higher in a multi-stage configuration. Gas handling capacities range from 25 CFM for a 3" scrubber to over 2000 CFM for a 12" scrubber. The compactness and design simplicity of the Fig. 7014 Scrubber Separator System permits installation in difficult to reach areas.

The Fig. 7040 Separator uses a special S&K designed impact baffle separator element to direct the downward discharge of a Fig. 7010 Ejector Venturi Gas Scrubber through a turbulent 90 degree bend of direction into a sidewall.  There, an inertial separation occurs as the impacted liquid drains downward and the gas stream, free of liquid, reverses its direction and heads out of the separator through a nozzle located opposite to the region of liquid-air impact.


Fig. 7014 Scrubber Separator System offers the following competitive advantages:  low initial cost, low energy requirements, simple design with no moving parts which means low maintenance, continuous operation (as opposed to bag houses and precipitators), no electrical requirements, simultaneous gas absorption and particulate scrubbing. Fig. 7014 Scrubber Separator Systems most often operate with a pressure rise or draft.  This serves a dual purpose: to boost the pressure of the gas and to clean the gas at the same time.

The Fig. 7040 Separator is recommended whenever space for gravity separation is not possible, desirable, or combined discharge of the liquid gas streams is undesirable. The continued contact through the impact baffle aids scrubbing efficiency. The unit is more compact than a gravity or cyclonic separator. Units can be designed with or without liquid storage capacity.
