Purafil’s Environmental Systems Division (ESD) has launched the Chlorine Drum Scrubber (CDS) designed to remove more than 99.5% of chlorine from air in industrial, water and wastewater applications. The scrubber canister is constructed with reinforced glass fibre to help resist chlorine corrosion and is sized for airflows of 100, 300 and 500 cfm. It has chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) packing.
The CDS works by removing the chlorine-laden air which enters the bottom of the CDS and flows upward through the company’s Chlorosorb Ultra dry-scrubbing media. The gases are adsorbed and chemically transformed into inorganic salts that remain inside the media. Chlorosorb Ultra accommodates continuous airstreams as well as fluctuating gas concentrations and airflows. It is non-hazardous and UL Classified Class 2 for flammability, Purafil says.
