ANCILLARY EQUIPMENT

EXHAUST GAS NEUTRALIZATION TANKS

Cortest exhaust gas neutralization tanks are used to reduce the H2S concentration of exhaust gas prior to it being exhausted to the customer’s scrubber or atmosphere. These assemblies are available in two or four tank configurations. Each PVC tank is 10” (25 cm) diameter X 30” (76 cm) long with a capacity of approximately 38 Liters. Safety pressure relief valves are also provided to ensure safe operation. A NaOH solution is used in each tank to help neutralize the H2S prior to being vented to atmosphere. Solution life can be monitored using optional pH probes.
