Gas Cooling/Quenching

  • Nozzles are used for cooling and quenching in a wide variety of chemical processing applications to control process temperatures and protect downstream equipment
    • Cooling process gases prior to scrubber/bag-houses
    • Cooling combustion exhaust gases
    • FGD quench systems
    • Emergency quench systems

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

Tank, Drum, and Tote Cleaning

  • Storage tanks
  • Reactors
  • Process vessels
  • Totes
  • IBC containers

Tank Mixing

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