Pilot tests to reduce pigment emissions
A pilot test was set up for a pigment manufacturer, to reduce their pigment emissions. The pilot installation consisted of the following elements:
- Quench cooler
- Gas scrubber
- Droplet separator / demister
The scrubber and quench should function as a stopgap solution, when one of the previous sleeve filters does rupture. In that situation, the installation has to capture the pigments present in the airflow, during a few minutes.
