Ionizing Wet Scrubber™ (IWS™)

The IWS™ is a highly specialized scrubber that combines particle charging with packed bed wet scrubbing. The end result is extremely high fine particle or mist collection combined with high efficiency gas absorption. Whilst the particle charging aspect is similar to wet electrostatic precipitation in some respects, key differences in design result in much broader scale application and performance, as well as the addition of high efficiency gas absorption.

The key application for this design has been hazardous waste incineration, where high efficiency acid gas absorption is required along with high efficiency particle collection to reduce acid gases, heavy metals, dioxins, furans and the like to acceptable levels.
