Air Scrubber Wastewater Solution

Air Scrubber WasteWater Solution

What is an Air Scrubber?

Air Scrubbers strip out contaminants from exhaust stacks typically by trickling a stream of salt solution through a bed of media to extract contaminants by putting them into solution. The salts found in these solutions are typically sulfates, chlorides, and carbonates. Air Scrubber wastewater tends to have high total dissolved solids (TDS) or salts.

Dealing with Wastewater from Air Scrubbers

Air Scrubber Wastewater cannot be simply flushed down the drain. Many companies choose to avoid the headaches of labor-intensive wastewater treatment technologies such as chemical treatment or filtration and simply pay to haul the wastewater. This however, can become quite expensive.

Many satisfied customers have found that using an ENCON Evaporator to greatly minimize the amount of wastewater needing to be hauled is both simple and cost effective.

Using a Drum Evaporator for Small Volume

ENCON Drum Evaporators are an affordable way to efficiently dewater small volume waste streams. Simple operation. Unit uses a standard 55-gallon drum to hold wastewater. Two models are available: The DE-2 processes up to 200 gallons per week. The DE-4 processes up to 400 gallons per week. The ENCON Drum Evaporator can also handle waste streams too concentrated for traditional evaporators. ENCON Drum Evaporators can even be fitted with a condenser to recycle the distilled water.

Using a Thermal Evaporator for Larger Volumes

For larger volumes, ENCON Thermal Wastewater Evaporators are available with evaporation capacities ranging from 10 to 400 gallons per hour. Thermal units can be run from a number of heat sources such as natural gas, propane gas, oil, diesel, kerosene, electricity, steam or even waste oil. Units are constructed of 316 stainless steel, higher alloys are available for more corrosive applications. A large number of options are available to customize the unit to your needs. Thermal units can even be fitted with a condenser to recycle the distilled water.
