    standardised scrubbers for biogas plants

    Product: Scrubber Sector: Biogas

    AEC scrubber part of total solution

    Client request

    In the biogas branche, AEC scrubbers are used to reduce ammonia and odour emissions. These gases are released during the production of biogas and the drying of the digestate. They cause a lot of environmental nuisance.

    AEC Systems received an inquiry of a manufacturer of dryers if it was possible to develop a scrubber that fits well with their product range. This way they could offer their customers in the biogas branche a total solution.

    For this specific client request, we designed a standard scrubbing unit to be installed behind the dryer. Polluted air enters the unit from one side and is being 'scrubbed' with sulphuric acid. Subsequently the cleaned air leaves the unit via a chimney.

    Once the standard scrubbers are built and tested at our factory, we arrange special transport abroad. As it is a standardised system, the installation, commissioning and training can be done by the manufacturer of dryers.

    The standard unit consists of:

    • een standard scrubber
    • a fan
    • a chimney
    • a chemical tank park
    • full control of all components



    Standard scrubbers. Let's summarize the advantages:

      • Testing and measurements on site are not necessary
      • Lower engineering costs in the design and development phase
      • Cost advantage with dimensionally stable materials
      • Faster construction and therefore shorter production time
      • Easy assembly and commissioning
      • Lower energy consumption
      • Clean system thanks to constant irrigation
      • Maintenance friendly

    These are all advantages why the builder of drying installations chose AEC Systems
