Brushing, buffing, cutting, drilling, fettling, grinding, polishing, and sawing create fine particles that become airborne and present an explosion hazard if the metals are combustible. The Venturi wet scrubber from Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) (Jonesboro, Ark.) improves workplace safety by collecting and removing this dust as well as aerosols, fumes, gas, and vapors.
The Venturi injects water, via a pump, into the inlet of the unit. At this point, extremely high velocities are generated that create contact surfaces with the scrubbing liquid. The result is effective mixing of the scrubbing liquid and the contaminated air stream. The particle-laded droplets are then separated from the airstream by centrifugal force.
