The new Ascott Analytical salt scrubber is now available – designed to remove highly corrosive salt from the chamber exhaust without the need to vent to atmosphere outside the building.
Self-contained and easily located alongside any Ascott salt spray chamber, the unit requires only a connection to the exhaust outlet, a floor level drain, a single-phase electricity and a pressurised water supply.
“The development allows corrosion analysis to be undertaken at the most convenient location and minimises the need for ducting or ventilation,” says Ascott Analytical MD, Chris Gates.
He points out that the unit condenses salt-water droplets from the exhaust which then combines for washing out with liquid that is retained in the base of the unit. The design uses a re-circulating spray system via an integral water pump, thereby minimising water wastage.
