Air scrubbers can either be portable units like those used for mold abatement, or permanent installations like those in industrial settings. In industrial settings they are used to remove pollutants from exhaust systems.
In this particular application, the customer has strictly regulated environmental standards and must monitor, document, and report water flow in their air scrubber to prove that it is working properly.
There are two main types of scrubbing, wet and dry. Dry scrubbing adds reactants to a dirty exhaust system to remove acidic gases. Wet scrubbing cleans air and gas, but water and other solutions are used. In this instance, to remove the simple dust particles, water is used.
Kobold notes that its MIK magmeter was installed to read the flow of water to the scrubber and was paired with its ZLS multichannel datalogger display. The USB port on the ZLS provides the application the means to download the data for easy reporting to environmental authorities.
