GEA Jet Pumps: World innovation – mobile chlorine absorption plant
After a testing period of several months, the worldwide unique chlorine absorption plant, which has been developed by GEA Jet Pumps, is now officially being presented.
The plant is located at the National Response Center of TUIS ("Transport-Unfall-Informations- und Hilfeleistungssystem", Transport Emergency Information Unit) in Ludwigshafen, Germany. The core of the plant is a two-stage jet scrubber which draws in and scrubs impure air containing up to 150 kg chlorine and purifies it to a chlorine content of less than 10 ppm. Depending on the case of application, the lye supplies will last for 2 hours of permanent operation. The mobile chlorine absorption plant is operational right around the clock. It has the dimensions of a container and can be transported by lorry, rail or air. The system can also be used for abating other leaking gas such as sulphur dioxide or hydrogen chloride.
