  • Spark producing applications eg grinding, finishing etc
  • Sticky dusts, such as organic particles and steam

Key Features:

  • No filter elements
  • The safest solution for flammable/combustible materials
  • Low, dust-free maintenance
  • Easy to clean
  • Several sludge containment options available, including automatic sludge scrapers
  • Automatic water replenishment and dry run protection

Wet Scrubber Technology

Particles in the contaminated air stream are brought into contact with water in order to bind them and increase their weight and size. The centrifugal action of the wet scrubber separates these particle laden water droplets from the air stream, returning them to the base of the unit where the particles settle out and form a sludge.

The Handte Vortex and Vortex Dual: Compact and versatile multi-application use wet scrubbers

For dust sticky dusts containing fibres the Vortex offers a highly effective solution. The particle laden air impacts or skims over the surface of the water (the scrubbing liquid). Some of the liquid flows through a vortex zone within the unit which creates turbulence and atomises the liquid into fine droplets. These fine droplets mix with the particle laden air stream and are then removed by centrifugal force.

For applications such as grinding and fine finishing where dust loading is low and a small footprint is required, the Vortex Dual is the ideal solution. The particle laden air impacts or skims over the surface of the scrubbing liquid. Some of the liquid flows through a vortex zone within the unit which creates turbulence and atomises the liquid into fine droplets, just like the Vortex. Additionally, the particle laden water flows directly into the impeller resulting in further interaction of water droplets and particles which are separated by the centrifugal force generated by the impeller.

Handte Venturi High-Performance Wet Collector

For demanding applications with high dust loading the Venturi is the most commonly used, high efficiency, unit. The Venturi injects water, via a pump, into the inlet of the unit. At this point, extremely high velocities are generated which create contact surfaces with the scrubbing liquid. The result is effective mixing of the scrubbing liquid and the contaminated air stream. The particle laded droplets are then separated from the airstream by centrifugal force.
