What gases need to be treated during the water desalination process?

Water desalination is a crucial process to ensure the supply of drinking water in many regions of the world.

However, this process can generate gas emissions that must be adequately treated to protect aspects such as the environment and public health. In this context, Tecnium offers advanced solutions for the treatment of these gases, ensuring a safe and sustainable industrial environment.

In this article, we will explore the technologies we offer and how they contribute to improving the efficiency and sustainability of desalination plants.

During the desalination and purification process, various gases can be released, including compounds such as carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These gases can negatively impact the environment, contributing to climate change and air pollution, and can adversely affect people’s health. It is essential to implement gas treatment technologies that capture and neutralize these pollutants before their release into the environment.

Tecnium Chem absorption

The Tecnium Chem absorption technology represents an advanced solution for gas treatment in purification and desalination plants. This technology uses scrubber towers, specifically designed to capture and neutralize harmful gases through chemical and physical absorption processes.

They are equipped with spray systems that disperse an absorbent solution over the gas flow, allowing efficient interaction between the liquid and the gas. This process facilitates the capture of contaminants such as sulfur dioxide (SO2), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other acidic gases.

Advantages of Tecnium Chem technology:

The scrubber towers are highly effective in capturing and neutralizing a wide range of gaseous contaminants. The technology ensures a significant reduction in emissions, complying with the strictest environmental regulations.

Designed for large-scale operations, these towers can process high volumes of gases without compromising their efficiency. This is crucial in desalination plants where large amounts of residual gases are generated.

Tecnium Chem absorption technology can adapt to different operational conditions and types of gases, making it ideal for various applications in the desalination industry.

Made from corrosion and wear-resistant materials, Tecnium Chem scrubber towers guarantee a long service life and consistent performance, even under severe operating conditions.

The design of the towers facilitates access to internal components, simplifying maintenance tasks and reducing downtime.
