Whether it be a small compact system for a laboratory or test plant or a large multi-stage complex system for a metallurgical processing facility Polimatrix has the necessary expertise and skills to offer our clients the right solution to their air pollution problems. Through our partnerships with various South African and International companies we are able to provide an economical, cost effective and reliable solution for the majority of odor and fume scrubbing applications.
Polimatrix provides standard and custom Fume (Gas) Scrubbing solutions for various applications.
HCF Scrubbers are used where a small compact system is required, and available height is limited. HCF scrubbers are also particularly suited to multi-stage odour scrubbing applications and scrubbing applications where the scrubber system must be installed indoors. HCF Scrubbers are also useful in applications requiring a very high liquid flow rate.
HCF scrubbers have a slightly lower efficiency than VCF scrubbers however this can be taken into account in the design. HCF scrubbers feature a horizontal inlet, a pre-wetting spray chamber, a packed bed chamber with liquid distributor above and a packing support below, a demister (droplet eliminator) chamber and a horizontal outlet to the fan. An HCF scrubber is usually rectangular in cross-section and sits on a rectangular base tank which contains the scrubber solution.
HCF Scrubbers are ideally suited for the following applications:
Main Areas Of Application:
POLIMATRIX ALWAYS INSTALLS THE EXTRACTION FAN ON THE CLEAN SIDE OF THE SCRUBBER.
This ensures that the duct and column containing contaminated air are always under negative pressure so that no contaminated air can escape the system. It also increases the longevity of the fan and ease of fan maintenance resulting in lower operational costs.
ALL POLIMATRIX SCRUBBERS FEATURE A CARTRIDGE TYPE DEMISTER ARRANGEMENT.
This eliminates the need to remove the top or end section of a fume scrubber to access the demister for inspection and maintenance. This reduces the time required for maintenance and inspection and makes this a low safety risk operation. The maintenance personnel are not directly exposed to the fumes inside the scrubber.
IN-LINE pH, ORP and CONDUCTIVITY MEASUREMENT.
Polimatrix utilizes an in-line bypass arrangement for the installation of pH, ORP and Conductivity sensors where these are required. This arrangement allows for accurate measurement of the scrubbing solution without the effect of “dead” areas within the tank and ensures that the scrubbing solution is always maintained within the optimum range. Eliminates the risk of leaks at threaded joints in the tank wall.
THERE ARE OTHER PROPRIETARY FEATURES WHICH GREATLY REDUCE MAINTENANCE AND INCREASE EASE OF OPERATION AND TOTAL EFFICIENCY SPECIFIC TO EACH SCRUBBER TYPE.
These features will be highlighted when Polimatrix discusses the application with each client.
Scrubber Base Tank:
A rectangular base tank usually incorporated into the scrubber body on smaller versions or a separate flanged tank on larger versions.
In the majority of cases this fan will be a COLASIT fan in a corrosion resistant thermoplastic material suited to the application. This fan will discharge into an exhaust stack.
This pump circulates the scrubbing solution and can also be used for blow-down (partial dumping of spent/contaminated scrubbing solution) and draining/transfer of the scrubbing solution. These pumps feature corrosion resistant materials of construction suited to each specific application.
X-Vent Fume Scrubbers are available in the following standard sizes
Most custom designed equipment is for use in one-off applications. These applications require a unique understanding of the various engineering plastic materials, solid design experience and an intuitive understanding of the practical application of the equipment.
Open and honest communication with our clients ensures that there is a full understanding of what is expected and what can be achieved.
Such projects are uniquely challenging but in the end very rewarding for both the client and Polimatrix.
Contact Polimatrix to discuss your unique requirements and we will gladly assist you.
