Designed to handle gas capacities from 500 to 250,000 acfm, Bionomic Industries’ RotaBed delivers high performance with a swirl-induced Coriolis grid that achieves greater fluidized bed stability, resulting in more efficient gas mixing and transfer efficiency than other designs. The scrubber’s turbulent, “packless,” highly plug-resistant mass transfer bed is 99-percent open in the fluid contact scrubbing zone and delivers ultra-high-efficiency gas absorption and particulate collection of over 99 percent on most applications.

Despite its smaller design, this scrubber provides high throughput capacity that as many as three times greater than comparable size packed towers or tray scrubbers. A two-stage chevron mist eliminator ensures complete droplet removal from the gas exiting the scrubber.

Typical applications include acid gas removal from high-temperature thermal oxidizers; chlorine dioxide and sulfur dioxide removal in pulp and paper bleach plants; acid and alkali fume removal from pickling, galvanizing, and cleaning lines including HCL regeneration plants in the metals industry; odor control and VOC removal from process operations, product dryers, and waste treatment operations; flue gas desulfurization using limestone, lime and soda ash chemistries at power generation facilities; and acid, gas, and particulate scrubbing in a wide range of process industries.

    Masking is employed in most any metal finishing operation where only a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process. Conversely, masking may be employed on a surface where treatment is either not required or must be avoided. This article covers the many aspects of masking for metal finishing, including applications, methods and the various types of masking employed.
