In crossflow packed bed scrubbers, the gas flow is horizontal and the scrubbing liquid sprays downward which minimizes height for low-profile applications.

The Verantis® crossflow scrubber is both streamlined and highly effective at absorbing gaseous pollutants to help control your environment. Thanks to its flushing characteristics, it can also effectively handle moderate loadings of solids. There’s no need for interconnecting ductwork with the Verantis crossflow scrubber; the equipment is configured so that the fan can be close-coupled directly to the gas outlet.

Our crossflow scrubbers provide convenient maintenance access and can be arranged in series if your application requires more than one scrubbing chemistry. In addition to standard models, our crossflow scrubbers can be completely customized for your unique needs and special applications.

Countercurrent Vertical

This scrubber is most commonly used for the removal of acid and other noxious gases from process ventilation and exhaust streams. It is designed for high collection efficiencies and maximum corrosion resistance. The unit is compact—ideal where floor space is at a premium. Availability of standard models reduces design, engineering and drafting time, and shortens delivery.
