If in case anyone reading this is totally new to these terms “ Wet Scrubbers” and “Dry scrubbers” then that person doesn’t need to worry as we will start the discussion with the basics only. Wet Scrubbers and the Dry Scrubbers are a type of tool one can say that is used for the treatment and purification of the air. These scrubbers are known for eliminating the harmful fumes from the atmosphere by using advanced ways and means for doing so.
If we get more into the details of it then we can say that all these fumes and harmful gases are released in the environment by the factories and the industries that are actively manufacturing, producing, and also supplying various types of products in the market, The products that are manufactured might not be harmful but in most cases, the process of production proves out to be harmful to the atmosphere and for the health of the people living in that. So, the wet scrubbers as well as the dry scrubbers are an effective source that is used at all these industries in order to treat those fumes so that the increasing pollution levels in the air and the atmosphere can be controlled.
But most of the people are seen confused between the two while they plan to install the scrubbers at their commercial setups, it is very important for anyone to know it all regarding the differences that are there between the wet scrubbers as well as the dry scrubbers before actually getting them installed at the place.
Though the use of Wet scrubber in India is more popular over the use of dry scrubbers still one cannot say that the dry scrubbers are not all of the use therefore here we will see all the information related to the differences between the wet scrubbers as well as the dry scrubbers in order to clear out all the confusion that is there in the mind of the people in association with both types of scrubbers.
In order to make it easier for the people to understand let us start the discussion regarding the differences from the basics of it. The fist and the basic difference that differentiates both types of scrubbers from each other is that a wet scrubber uses liquid agents such as some sort of chemical or mostly it uses water and sometimes it is also seen using both the chemical liquids as well as the water for the conduct of the process of air treatment and purification.
On the other hand, the dry scrubbers are designed in a way that for the conduct of the same procedure they use some dry agents and thus remove all the harmful elements from the exhaust system and thus helping in the maintenance of a clean and safe environment for everyone to live in.
But comparing both of them performance wise one can say that the Wet scrubbers outperform the dry scrubbers and hence they are taken more into use. There are various reasons for that such as the wet scrubbers offer a wide verity to the people to choose from and also they are best to be applied in almost all types of industries also the Wet scrubbers have proved out to be more effective in comparison to the dry scrubbers. The capability of a Wet scrubber for dealing with the pollutants is far ahead of the capability of the dry scrubbers.
But still, there are few such places where one can say that using a Dry scrubber would be a better choice rather than using a wet scrubber. The list of all such places includes all such places that are not capable of dealing with the wastewater that would be produced as an outcome of the conduct of the process that will be done by the wet scrubber. Such conditions come up when the place that is in need of a scrubber for the pollution control but lacks the kind of infrastructure that is needed for efficient operations to be done by a wet scrubber.
Other than this the choice of the right scrubber for the industry may depend on many other factors as well therefore after weighing all the differences that are given here and after reviewing the exact requirements only a person would be able to choose the correct type of scrubber for the concerned industry.
