Scrubbers are devices that use a liquid (often water) to capture and remove pollutants. Through a nozzle or orifice, a scrubbing liquid is atomized and dispersed into the gas stream. The droplets entrain and capture dust particles through agglomeration, adherence, or encapsulation. This effectively increases the size and mass of the particles, making them easier to collect in a subsequent filter or separation process. The scrubbing liquid simultaneously absorbs and neutralizes gaseous pollutants. The suspended liquid is typically recovered in mist collectors and recycled through the system.
