Wet lime scrubbing EMIS

Process description. The wet lime injection process combines the advantages of scrubbers and (semi) dry lime injection. This flue gas cleaning technique is mainly used for desulphurisation of flue gases, while other acid-forming components are also bonded. During wet lime injection, a slurry of limestone (CaCO 3) is sprayed into the spray column.

Minimal flow rate ratio of slurry and gas in lime

The lime/limestone scrubbing process is the most commonly used method for reduction of the SO2 concentration in flue gases. The process requires a large amount of energy for slurry recycling in the scrubber and therefore careful control of the ratio between slurry and gas flow rate is required. Calculation of the minimum ratio of slurry to gas flow rate (L/V) m under equilibrium conditions, in
