Vent Gas Scrubber System

Principle of Operation

The Fig. 7019 Vent Gas Scrubber System is a compact, lightweight, and easy-to-install unit designed for economical and effective control of pollution from low volume sources. The Fig. 7019 Vent Gas Scrubber System is comprised of a Fig. 7009 Scrubber combined with a Fig. 7043 Liquid Gas Separator.  Both are available from stock.  Use of the combined Fig. 7009 Vent Gas Scrubber and Fig. 7043 Liquid Gas Separator is recommended where it is undesirable to send the entrained gas down the drain with the scrubbing liquid. No pressure drop is encountered when using this Fig. 7043 Liquid Gas Separator, therefore, no effect on scrubber capacity is seen.

The Fig. 7043 Liquid Gas Separator is a device to separate the entrained gas and liquid discharged from a Fig. 7009 Vent Gas Scrubber. It operates on the gravity principle with the liquid directed to the bottom to run out a drain opening while the gas must make a 180 degree change of direction to exit through a top outlet. The unit is sized to allow low gas velocity so that gravity separation can be achieved. 


Compact, efficient scrubbing of small gas flows from lab hoods, storage tanks, and small industrial pilot plant equipment. Fig. 7019 Vent Gas Scrubber Systems are economical in their use of water. They can provide a draft as fans can but they are also efficient in particulate and noxious gas removal - unlike fans. Unlike bag house-type filters, continuous operation is possible with minimal maintenance.

The Fig. 7043 Liquid Gas Separator is used where it is undesirable to discharge the entrained gas with the liquid into a drain. Alternatively, if using a large tank with the Fig. 7009 Vent Gas Scrubber, such as for recirculation of the scrubbing liquid, the Fig. 7043 Liquid Gas Separator is not necessary.
