Why Setup A Wet Scrubber System?

Black smoke emissions into the atmosphere from boiler flue-gas stacks is a common sight in rural Malaysia, where the majority of palm oil mills are located. The main pollutant of concern is the particulate matter present in the stack discharge that gives rise to suspended atmospheric particulate matter at ground level in the surrounding areas of the palm oil mills. This poses serious health concerns among the mill workers and residents who live or work in the neighborhood around the mills.
Thus, the government has enacted the Environment Quality (Clean Air) Regulations, 2014 to enforce the compliance of maximum concentration limit values for selected air pollutants at the flue-gas stack discharge. Emission limits have been established to address a variety of concerns about atmospheric pollution on the human and natural environment. The prescribed maximum emission limit value for total particulate matter concentration is 150 mg/Nm3 and for smoke opacity is shade No. 2 on the Ringlemann Chart for boilers of capacities used at palm oil mills. However, the particle concentration limits in term of the particulate size classification are not specified. Maximum value is also prescribed to limit the concentration of gaseous pollutant of Carbon Monoxide to 1000 mg/Nm3.
A wet scrubbing system is integrated into existing mill boiler systems to collect particulates emitted. Very fine particulates in flue gasses can be scavenged similar to rainfall scavenging of dust particles in the atmosphere. Flue gas particulate content is reduced 90% from current acceptable levels and there is a noticeable reduction in black smoke emission.
System Design and Components
Horizontal cross-flow system incorporated with 2 stages of high efficiency dust particulate arrestor for minimum water consumption.
Nozzles are designed for high velocity, low volume maximum gas-liquid contact.
​High efficiency nozzles designed for maximum particulate suppression with minimum back pressure to the boiler.
Nozzles designed to withstand temperature and clogging, minimizing maintenance requirement.
High efficiency stainless steel mist eliminators are placed in strategic positions to arrest water droplets and particles.
​Second stage mist eliminator linked to boiler CMS, only activated when particles density are above 100mg / nm3 for further water consumption reduction.
​Mist eliminators designed to have minimum back pressure to the boiler.
Filtration system for wet scrubber slurry cleaning, where the solid fly ash is removed by jute bags and the water is discharged into cleaning/ washing tank.
All welded parts are stainless steel 304 for corrosion resistance.
Inspection doors are provided at strategic points for cleaning and maintenance.
Chimney, from base to 20ft height, is coated with high temperature corrosion resistance coating for corrosion protection.
