Venturi Basics

In the fixed-throat venturi, the gas stream enters a converging section where it is accelerated toward the throat section. Liquid droplets are also introduced into the converging section. Owing to inertia, they have a different velocity relative to the smaller particles. The particles in the gas stream are collected when they impact upon the drops.

Mist Eliminator

All wet scrubbers produce entrained droplets. These droplets contain the contaminants and must be removed downstream This is referred to as mist elimination or entrainment separation. A cyclone is typically used for the small droplets generated in a venturi

To determine if a wet scrubber system is working properly, field personnel should observe if possible: Outlet Gas Stream Opacity, but take into consideration the presence of water droplets, the Temperature Difference between the Gas Inlet and Outlet, the Liquid Flow Rate into the scrubber, and Pressure Drop changes in the wet scrubbers and mist eliminators. As with any inspection of an air pollution control device, attention must be given to the systems: Records & Physical Condition, and Compliance with Applicable Rules. Wet scrubber systems used for air pollution control have many safety considerations including: Inhalation Hazards and Corrosive Liquids.

The pressure drop across the mist eliminator provides an excellent indicator of its physical condition A decrease in the pressure drop across the mist eliminator may indicate structural failure The performance of the mist eliminator can also be evaluated by observing the stack and areas adjacent to the stack Rain-out of droplets around the stack, mud-lips and discolored streaks at the stack discharge, or heavy drainage from open ports all indicate a poorly performing mist eliminator.

Liquid to Gas Ratio (1030 gallons/1000 acf ) Gas Velocity at Throat (60 150 m/s) Gas Pressure Drop (< 80 inches H2O) Inlet Particle Size (>0.2 micrometers) Energy Consumption (4-12 Watts/cfm)

Liquid-to-Gas Ratio

Higher L/G, higher L/G optimal at 710 gal/1000ft3 L/G > 10 increases P and operating costs

11

Relative Velocity

Due to their inertia, the larger water droplets respond slowly to changes in the surrounding gas velocity, whereas the smaller pollution particles respond rapidly. The difference in velocity, the relative velocity causes impaction of the particles onto the droplets.

Increased relative velocity, increased Highest gas velocity at center of throat (150 500 ft/s) High relative velocities in throat and downstream of throat

Pressure Drop

PT = PG + PL + Pmech

PT = total contact power, PG = power due to pressure drop of gas passing through the scrubber, PL = power due to the scrubber liquid atomization, and Pmech = power due to mechanical devices to increase contact, i.e., a rotor.
