Ceramic Tile Manufacturing

Envitech provides packed bed absorbers to remove acidic gases such as HF, HCl, and SO2 that are emitted from ceramic kilns.

Chemical, Mineral and Pharmaceutical Processing

Envitech provides equipment treating a wide range of exhaust sources such as particulate removal from process gas production, acid absorption from regenerative thermal oxidizers, and metal capture from roasters and furnaces.

Ethanol Production

Ethanol scrubbers, sometimes referred to as fermentation scrubbers, recover ethanol vapors from ethanol production facilities and distilleries.

Geothermal Power Generation

Envitech provides packed bed scrubbers to remove sulfur dioxide (SO2) from the combustion of non-condensible exhaust gases.

Medical Waste Incineration

Envitech is the leading supplier of medical waste incinerator scrubbers to control particulate, acid gases HCl and SO2, heavy metals Pb, Cd, and Hg, and dioxins/furans.

Mineral Wool Fiber and Glass Fiber Production

Envitech provides Venturi scrubbers and wet electrostatic precipitators to control particulate formed during fiberization and curing processes.

NOx Scrubbing

Several applications use wet scrubbers for NOx abatement including nitric acid manufacturing, metal finishing operations, and other types of chemical processing.

Potash Mining

Envitech Venturi scrubbers remove particulate, hydrofluoric acid and sulfuric acid formed in the mining and processing of potassium.

Primary and Waste Oil Refining and Asphalt Production

Envitech packed bed scrubbers remove sulfur dioxide (SO2) from refinery and asphalt operations.

Secondary Lead Smelting

Envitech provides a host of technologies to the lead smelting industry, including packed bed scrubbers for acid gas control and and wet electrostatic precipitators for heavy metal removal.

Sewage Sludge Incinerators (SSI)

Sewage sludge incinerators (SSI) typically operate at municipal waste water treatment facilities and combust dewatered sewage sludge to reduce sludge volume and disposal costs.
