Custom Spray Nozzle Solutions – High Flow Scrubbing
Industry: Chemical Processing
Application: SO2 Scrubbing
Product Description: Special High Flow Bete NCK
Situation: A Bete customer from a large international chemical company called Bete Applications Engineering with the requirement for nozzles to go into a scrubber they were preparing to build. The scrubber service would be removing Sulfur Dioxide from a gas by reaction with Sodium Hydroxide that would be injected by the nozzles. Sodium Sulfite and water would result. The nozzle would be required to flow 1150 gpm (4350 L/min) at 30 psi (2.1 bar) and unleash substantial energy to facilitate mixing.
Solution: Bete Applications Engineering coordinated efforts with both the chemical company and the engineering firm that was contracted to build the scrubber. The nozzle specified for the job was a special high flowing Bete NCK in Teflon with a 15 degree spray angle. The narrow spray angle was chosen to concentrate the force.
