TURBULAIRE® dust removal scrubber

The TURBULAIRE® scrubber is Waterleau's proprietary technology and is particularly adapted to treat airflows up to 800.000 m³/h, with dust levels to 30g/m³ and particles up to 3 µm.  

TURBULAIRE® technology

Using liquid to collect dust particles, the TURBULAIRE® dust scrubber combines a low energy variable venturi throat and high velocity gas impaction on the liquid surface. This combination results in high efficiency dust scrubbing with a minimal amount of energy.

The TURBULAIRE® scrubber can be equipped if necessary with a final demister, a sub-cooling section or an absorption section.
