Packed Scrubber Components

KemFlo specializes in the manufacturing of plastic random packing which is utilized in air scrubbing, air stripping and other mass transfer applications. KemFlo is unique in that they have the ability to manufacture their plastic random packing in a variety of resins. While Polypropylene is the most common resin used in manufacturing plastic random packing, KemFlo also manufactures plastic random packing in specialty resins such as CPVC, PVDF, Polypropylene with glass, PFA and more. Please visit our website or call us for a complete list of available resins. Kemflo offers three different styles of scrubber packing, the Tri-Pack style, Pall Ring and Saddle. The Tri-Pack is available in 1”, 2” and 3.5”. The Pall Ring is available in 1”, 2” and 3.5”. The Saddle is available in 1”, 2” and 3”. While the packing type and size is one of the most important elements in the design of a scrubber there are other important components to consider such as packing supports, bed limiters, mist...

KemFlo Plastic Random Packing Products

KemFlo manufactures a complete line of plastic random packing products for a variety of applications including Air Scrubbing, Air Stripping, Distillation, Biological Filtration and many more. KemFlo offers three different styles of plastic random packing, each offering unique physical properties and can be manufactured in a variety of plastic resins. Whatever your plastic random packing application is, KemFlo has a solution. One of KemFlo’s most popular plastic random packing styles is the Tri-Pack. The Tri-Pack is a high-performance packing which helps customer achieve optimum performance from their system. The Tri-Pack is a hollow spherical column packing constructed of a unique network of ribs, struts and drop rods. Its superior geometric shape gives it an advantage over other products on the market. Their spherical shape allows each element to roll into the packed position without forming void areas common to irregular shaped packing. With Tri-Packs there is no need for...

Packed-bed Scrubbers

Packed-bed scrubbers consist of a chamber containing plastic random packing material, such as KemFlo’s Kempac plastic tower packing (Tripack, Pall Ring or Plastic Saddle), that provide a large surface area for liquid-particle contact. The packing is held in place by a bed limiter and supported by a packing support. Scrubbing liquid is evenly introduced through a liquid distributor located above the packing and flows down through the plastic scrubber packing. The liquid coats the plastic tower packing and establishes a thin film. The pollutant to be absorbed must be soluble in the fluid.In packed-bed scrubbers, the gas stream flows up the chamber (countercurrent to the liquid). Some packed beds are designed horizontally for gas flow across the packing (crosscurrent). Physical absorption depends on properties of the gas stream and liquid solvent, such as density and viscosity, as well as specific characteristics of the pollutant(s) in the gas and the liquid stream. These...

Corrosion Problems with Wet Scrubbers

Corrosion is one of the most challenging and costly issues seen across all markets worldwide. Billions of dollars are spent dealing with the effects and in the prevention of corrosion. Engineers are tasked with the job of designing in such a way that minimizes the effects of corrosion. Luckily there are many high performance materials and systems for engineers to utilize in their efforts to combat the effects of corrosion. Cost and material availability must be weighed against long term performance of a system. Air pollution control engineers must consider the following design criteria when designing wet scrubbing equipment:king.com. Technical performance: Does the unit consistently meet the specified air cleaning efficiency? Reliability: What are its weaknesses and how can we protect against damage or failure? Outage: How much of an outage can be tolerated without loss and how quickly can the unit be repaired or replaced? Cost: What is the most cost effective system?...
