Best Answer

The contaminated gas is brought into intimate contact with curtains of liquid spray directed at right angles to the gas flow after it enters the involute section. The scrubbed gases proceed along the involute where the bulk of the iquid is separated. The remainder of entrained droplets are removed when the accelerated gases enter the spin zone. The liquid moves by gravity to the bottom cone drain, and the cleaned gases leave the scrubber at the top outlet.

Working principle of venturi scrubber?

A Venturi scrubber is a wet scrubber that essentially washes gases or particulates out of a gas stream. To accomplish this removal it is necessary to mix the "dirty" gas with fine droplets of the fluid used to remove them. A Venturi accomplishes this by passing the washing fluid through a tapered neck in the Venturi nozzle introducing the gas and liquid into the system . The high speed gas breaks the fluid into tiny droplets and mixes them with itself. The fluid picks up the impurities and coalesces into larger droplets which either fall out of the gas or are collected on impingement plates or packing. The purified gas leaves the system, the dirty fluid is sent for disposal or purified for reuse.
