Tower Packings for Wet Scrubbers:

Lantec has perfected a line of innovative tower packings for wet scrubbing. Conventional packings (round and cylindrical) are often specified for wet scrubbers, but Lantec tower packings defy convention! Using Q-PAC instead of conventional packings can increase tower capacity while lowering capital, operations, and maintenance costs.

Q-PAC® works by creating millions of droplets inside a scrubber, greatly increasing mass transfer activity in these airborn droplets. Mass transfer activity in conventional scrubbers occur on the surface of the packings; as such they are built larger and with larger pressure drop than towers built with Q-PAC®.

Forward thinking system manufacturers have embraced Q-PAC® as their packing of choice for their scrubbers. By using Q-PAC® and relying on Lantec’s technical expertise for various treatment objectives in wet scrubbing, these forward thinking scrubber manufacturers have excelled.

Odor Control System for Composting of Chicken Processing Waste

Composting of animal-solids and food waste generates smelly exhaust air requiring odor control. Bioganix Ltd, a waste recovery company based in Leominster, England, and Simdean Envirotec built an odor-control system to treat 34,000 m³/h (20,000 cfm) of air containing up to 300 ppm of ammonia and VOCs from in-vessel composting of chicken feathers and other poultry processing waste. A two-stage chemical scrubber followed by a biofilter reduces odor levels from over 450,000 odor units to below 300 odor units, resulting in less than 3 odor units in air at the plant boundary.

The chemical scrubber uses Q-PAC packing for gas absorption and NUPAC for mist elimination. The high capacity of these packings helps to minimize the scrubber footprint needed for efficient odor control without excessive fan power costs.

The system produces high-grade compost and ammonium sulfate, both useful as fertilizers.
