Droplet separation in flue gas desulfurization

For integrative holistic solutions

Thanks to the introduction of wet flue gas desulfurization, it has been possible to sustainably reduce emissions over the course of recent decades and meet even stringent environmental requirements. We are proud of our contribution to this achievement. Because it is here above all that it is possible to see the advantages of considering droplets from their production through to separation.

Droplet separation in flue gas desulfurization

The highest separation results can be achieved only through combination of highly wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant nozzles made of silicon carbide with tailor-made droplet separators. We therefore offer a coordinated overall concept with efficient nozzles for flue-gas scrubbing as well as the matching droplet separators with integrated cleaning system. We supply droplet separator systems in different materials and designs to meet your requirements.

Droplet separation in flue gas desulfurization in practice


  • Removal of sulfur compounds
  • Protection of downstream installation components
  • Reduction of operating costs
  • Increase in plant uptime


  • Highest degrees of separation for large liquid quantities
  • Separation of extremely small droplets
  • Compact design even for high gas velocities
  • Low pressure losses
  • More uniform flow distribution
  • Use also with high solid particle quantities
  • Cleaning during ongoing operation
  • Low residual liquid quantities
