atea-WK patented packing is designed in-house to suit the design and requirements of our scrubbers. Commonly used packing
types, such as APP-50 and APP38, are proven to have a low pressure drop and do not cause sudden choking in the scrubber.
Unlike structured packing, our APP-50 and APP-38 forms a loose packing bed. It is easy to clean, maintain and new packing
can be easily added without replacing the complete packing bed.
The APP-V38 is an established economical demister which has an overall efficiency > 99% for water droplets less than 10
micron. It has been designed and further developed by atea-WK’s research center in Germany to suit the unique design of our
scrubbers. Our tests have shown that the pressure drop across the demister is at a minimum level compared to its size and
smooth cylindrical surface.
Another important advantage of APP-V38 is that it is easily removed and replace inside the scrubber. This simple procedure
reduces the time spent and costs involved with maintenance and cleaning.
As a standard, all atea-WK scrubbers are fitted with two re-circulation pumps (100% redundancy).
These pumps are single stage vertical centrifugal pumps. All parts in contact with the scrubber liquid are manufactured
from plastic for corrosion protection.
Every atea-WK scrubber is equipped with its own independent local control panel and monitoring system. All our scrubbers
are controlled via a PLC installed in this panel. As an option, a hardwired safety by-pass system can be provided upon
Local control panel with touch screen operation picture together with horizontal scrubbers.
