Fume Scrubbers and Exhaust Systems Overview

Industrial air pollution receives enormous attention from the public and the press, making it not only a manufacturing concern, but having an impact on the entire company. Mech-Chem recognizes the importance of proper air emission control to not only meet EPA regulations, but the expectations of your customers and the public.

Mech-Chem’s services in Air Pollution Control Systems include:

  • Fume Scrubbers and Exhaust Systems
  • Push/Pull Ventilation Systems (Photo below)
  • Gas Adsorption Systems
  • Particulate Filtration Systems
  • Carbon Absorption Systems
  • Gas/Acid Scrubbing Systems
  • Tank/Equipment Venting

In order to establish the appropriate design of air emission control systems for gases, chemical vapors and acids, the following items are evaluated:

  • Gas Flow Rate
  • Liquid Flow Rate
  • Inlet Gas Composition
  • Outlet Gas Composition
  • Scrubber Efficiency
  • Mass Transfer Coefficient
  • Superficial Velocity
  • Flood Point
  • Packed Bed Area
  • Packed Bed Length
  • Liquid pH Level

Mech-Chem has conducted technical and engineering evaluations in air emissions to meet EPA standards for the release the fumes from:

  • Acids, including nitric (HNO3), hydrochloric (HCl), hydrofluoric (HF), phosphoric acid (H3PO4), and sulfuric acid (H2SO4)
  • Metallic contaminants and particulates
  • Solvents including: toluene, ethyl acetate, methanol, ethanol, isopropanol and tetrahydofuran
