Fume Scrubber

Fume Scrubber Picture

Esco's Fume Scrubber provides excellent air pollution control for water soluble chemicals present in the laboratory fume hood exhaust fumes.

In recent years there has been increased emphasis on laboratory operator safety and also environmental concerns like environmental health and protection. Governments respond by setting stricter rules to control the emission and quality of exhaust fumes from industries and laboratories. Therefore, more and more laboratory designers and facility operators are considering the use of scrubbers for their fume hoods.

Esco fume scrubbers are optimally designed to save space, as well as, provide effective air pollution control and operator safety protection for fume hoods. This is especially important for perchloric acid fume hoods, so as to prevent a build-up of potentially explosive perchlorate salts on the exhaust fan, as well as, on the exhaust ducting system.

  • Exellent removal efficiencies: Efficient counter-current gas/liquid contact results in 95-98% efficiency for most water-soluble acid and base laden airstreams.
  • Durable: Entire body of scrubber system made of chemical and corrosion resistant polypropylene.
  • Compact: The packing, spray manifold and mist eliminator counted on top of fume hood, pump and reservoir in the base cabinet. This arrangement ensures that minimal extra space is required for the scrubber system.
