SCENARIO FOR THE SECTOR
Cooling and exhaust gas abatement in a biofiltration plant

In petrochemical plants, operational safety is important to prevent potentially hazardous incidents such as overheating and reduce odors from exhaust gases.

The tank wetting system plays a fundamental role in such efforts through dedicated spraying systems, ensuring effective and responsible control of operations within refineries.

THE PROBLEM

Our customer, active in the petrochemical industry, has turned to us to improve the performance of the wetting system of an odor treatment plant with biofiltration.

The systems of treatment of odors by biofiltration allow the capture of the odorous air produced by production or processing processes and to direct it, through ducts and vacuums, towards scrubbers, which humidify and then convey it to a biofilter. This biofilter takes place in the last phase of treatment of the gas flow (biofiltration), which allows air to be released into the atmosphere with reduced concentrations of potentially harmful substances.

The tank surfaces’ wetting system must be activated at the appropriate time, thus preventing dust and gas dispersion.

THE SOLUTION

PNR Italia addressed the client’s needs with a tailor-made solution, designing a wetting system that uses collectors positioned above the storage tanks, onto which our hydraulic atomizers RX are mounted.

The system, consisting of three leading feed collectors and 77 nozzles for each individual tank, offers high efficiency and precision spraying on the tanks.
