Verantis® offers a fluidized bed system that combines the effectiveness of a venturi scrubber with that of a packed bed scrubber, optimizing energy consumption while minimizing the effects of any fouling in unique applications.

A Verantis fluidized bed scrubber can replace your venturi/packed scrubber combination with a single device. We can replace your existing packed tower with a fluidized bed scrubber design to solve your fouling problems, increase capacity, add particulate removal capability, and control your environment.

Fluidized bed scrubbers effectively remove PM10 and PM2.5 particulate while achieving high-efficiency gas absorption. They contain special packing that lifts and fluidizes in a specific liquid-to-gas flow range, producing a highly turbulent zone that prevents solid build-up while achieving intimate contact between the gas and liquid.

Key Points

  • Capacities from 1,000 to 100,000 ACFM
  • Simultaneous removal of gases and particulate
  • Low-fouling design reduces maintenance
  • Low energy consumption compared with conventional particulate scrubbers
  • Effective for direct-contact heat transfer
  • Corrosion resistant construction

Markets and Applications

Typical markets and applications that benefit from fluidized bed scrubbers include:

  • Chemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Chemical Vapor Deposition
