Common Nozzle Applications in Chemical Processing:

Gas Scrubbing

  • Dry scrubbers
    • SO2 removal using lime slurries or other scrubbing agents
  • Odor control
    • Liquids can be sprayed to mask or chemically alter the smell of products, waste, process streams, or exhaust gas
  • Packed bed scrubbers
    • Acid scrubbers
      • Hydrochloric (HCl), sulfuric acid (H2SO4), nitric (HNO3), or hydroflouric (HF) acids
    • Halogen removal
      • Cl2, Br2, F2
    • Ammonia/amine scrubbing
  • SCR/SNCR applications
    • Control NOx emissions using ammonia (NH3) or urea solution
    • Nozzles spray ammonia or urea solutions to absorb nitrogen oxides which are produced after most combustion processes and which emissions are limited by environmental regulations
  • Venturi scrubbing
    • A form of gas scrubbing in which the gas passes through a narrowed section of ducting where high velocities help to ensure thorough mixing and contact between the gas and scrubbing fluid
  • Wash water injection

Coating

Spray Drying

  • Create powder products from solutions and slurries by spraying into a heated chamber
    • Soaps
    • Detergents
    • Dyes/pigments
    • Encapsulation of product

Tank, Drum, and Tote Cleaning

Tank Mixing

  • Tank circulation
  • Solids suspension
  • Blending
  • Mixing and agitation
