How our Technology Works

Quench Stage

Gases are quenched to saturation, eliminating the bulk of the large particulates. Recycling of alkali solution significantly reduces acid gases including SO2.

Atomization Stage

Aerosols and particulates are induced into negative pressure flow fields formed by unique HydroMist™ nozzles. Atomization provides a large surface area for liquid-to-gas contact; improving SO2 absorption. Optimum scrubber droplet size is generated for submicron particulate collection.

Jet Venturi Stage

A highly efficient Jet Venturi stage removes remaining acid gases while removing large particulate and some submicron particulates generating a draft at the same time. This option is available for customers who require visible plume reduction without any pressure loss in the scrubber or back pressure on the engine.

MicroMist Venturi (MMV) Stage

Ultra efficient MMV stage removes remaining acid gases while removing virtually all particulates including submicron particulates with ultra high efficiencies. This is the choice for ship owners and operators who want to completely eliminate a visible plume and provide the ultimate pollution control solution that will meet current IMO regulations and expected, more stringent particulate limits in the future.

Separation Stage

High efficiency separator stage removes dirty droplets with collected particulates from the exhaust gases.

Mercury Reduction & SO2 Polishing Stage

Using novel Sorbent Polymer Composite (SPC) materials, EnviroCare can include mercury reduction and SO2 polishing capabilities with reduced water consumption as part of the scrubber design. This low pressure drop stage optimizes fuel flexibility and provides scrubber options tailored to special requirements.
