In the quenching area, an intensive water injection process binds the dust particles in the gas stream with water. At the same time, the raw gas is cooled until the saturation point is reached.
In the mist collector, the dust-laden, agglomerated drops of water are removed from the gas stream by a centrifugal separator.
The wet scrubber is operated in a closed water circuit for water treatment purposes. The solids captured in the water are separated from the circulating water by a reliable sifting unit.
