Wet air scrubbers for mold remediation


Wet air scrubbers allow solving a wide range of problems, even within the home from indoor places undergoing renovations, where water damage happened, after a fire, and even mold presence inside the environment. These air treatment devices will efficiently promote to reduce harsh environments that may have become polluted by a variety of particulates. Nevertheless, is a wet scrubber the best air treatment device to apply to treat an indoor environment that has been polluted by mold growth?

Usually, wet scrubber systems are employed for commercial applications, rather than for application in a personal indoor environment for air treatment. Wet scrubbers remove chemicals, gases, and toxic particles from the air that can raise from major projects or water intrusions within a space. It is possible to use scrubbers that can cover thousands of square feet with a single device, therefore, such scrubber systems are more cost-effective than an air purifier. 

All scrubbers are distinguished on dry and wet air scrubbers. Its operating principle is based on the removal of particulate pollutants from the air that has been sparked by or produced by a significant event in the environment (such as mold damage, water intrusions, flooding, fire, etc.). Wet scrubbers use limestone or other chemicals, for instance, activated alumina as a major component in these air treatment devices due to their ability to neutralize hydrogen chloride gas and other particulate pollutants in the air.

Wet air scrubbers treat the air generally applying a solution of water and limestone that is sprayed into the smokestack. “This chemical mixture will be directed through a tube packed with this mixture that will be released out into the air space. Whereas a dry scrubber will use limestone and other additional chemicals if necessary, without moisture.” The chemicals in dry air scrubbers are discharged then into the air and operate by attaching to particulates in the air.

Wet air scrubbers are perfect to be applied in an indoor space – particularly when a large area has been polluted containing thousands of square feet of space in this environment. The main particulate pollutants that can be treated by scrubber systems include mold, dust, asbestos, lead, chemical fumes, and other particulates produced by large-scale projects or accidents in the home. For instance, the most common applications of wet air scrubbers are considered to be mold remediation jobs, renovation companies, and job sites where flooding or fire damage has happened in the indoor space of a home or building. 

If you would like to make your contribution to improving air quality in order to provide air pollution control, you should choose a new type of wet scrubbers that is Multi-Vortex scrubber. Multi-Vortex wet air scrubber could apply water contaminated with dust, sand, and even small rocks to capture particulate pollutants, different types of dust and some gases from the air. 

This type of scrubber is an ideal solution for ore and coal mining. Thus, it can be used in different mining, combustion and chemical processes to capture gases. Also, in some cases, the unique Multi-Vortex scrubber design allows utilizing cheaper reagents to capture the pollutant gas with more efficiency than a standard wet scrubber.
