How to use waste gas scrubber

  • Commonly used chemical absorbents in waste gas scrubbers


    1. Alkaline solution


    Alkaline absorbents usually contain 1%~10% sodium hydroxide solution, which has a significant effect on eliminating hydrogen sulfide waste gas. Others such as methyl mercaptan, methyl sulfide, methyl disulfide, and lower fatty acids often cause odor in wastewater treatment plants. The treatment effect is also very significant for flavor substances.


    2. Acidic solution


    Acid liquid washing is mainly used to eliminate the odor caused by alkaline gases such as ammonia and trimethylamine. Generally, sulfuric acid (0.5%-5% solution) is used as the washing liquid.


    3. Sodium hypochlorite solution


    Sodium hypochlorite is generally used together with acid-base absorbents. For methyl sulfide that is difficult to eliminate by other methods, the control effect of sodium hypochlorite absorbent is very good.

    When dealing with high-concentration odors, the concentration of sodium hypochlorite solution (effective chlorine concentration) is about 500-2000 ppm; when dealing with lower-concentration odors, the concentration of sodium hypochlorite solution is about 50-500 ppm. In terms of the performance of various oxidants, sodium hypochlorite is the cheapest and has a good treatment effect, so it is widely used. The sodium hypochlorite in the solution is in the form of hypochlorous acid (HOCl):

                       NaOCl+ H2O→HOCl+ NaOH

    At pH=7.5, the available chlorine of the hypochlorite solution exists as 50% HOCI and hypochlorite ion (OCl-);

    At pH=l0, only 0.3% of available chlorine exists as HOCl;

    pH=l1 or 12, HOCl is almost completely dissociated into useless hypochlorite ions, so the pH control is very heavy.
