Word forms: (regular plural) particulate scrubbers
( Chemical Engineering : Operations , Gas-solid operations )
In particulate scrubbers, the liquid is dispersed into the gas as a spray, and the liquid droplets are the
main collectors for the solid particles.
The basic principle of particulate scrubbers is to generate easily collected large particles by combining liquid droplets with
relatively small dust particles.
A particulate scrubber is a scrubber in which a liquid is mixed with the gas to collect solids.
