GEM MTS provides liquid scrubbing solutions to enhance carbon vapor control systems. GEM MTS utilizes diesel fuel specialized chemistry to reduce VOC's, caustic solution to scrub H2S, and acid to remove ammonia from vapor streams.
Frequent carbon burnout is often an issue for vacuum truck exhaust during turnarounds , tank cleaning and pipeline suction projects involving crude oil and gasoline or other light-ends . Combining a liquid diesel scrubber with activated carbon will prevent the need for frequent stoppages to replace spent carbon, as well as reduce spikes in vapor concentrations which can quickly raise the temperature of carbon to dangerous levels.
Similarly, GEM MTS' combination of carbon with liquid scrubbing is sometimes often the most cost-effective approach for controlling vapors generated by sludge processing operations , barges, tankers and API separators .
Each scrubber system consists of a compact trailer with two carbon vessels, a liquid scrubbing vessel, sampling ports, temperature gauges, flame arrestor, bypass valve , check valve and optional blower . Our service also includes an operator, frequent monitoring and management of the scrubber system. GEM MTS monitor s vapor streams with a variety of handheld instrumentation and devices, including PID, 4-gas, FID , and infrared meters, as well as draeger tubes and bag samples in some cases.
GEM MTS's scrubber systems cut costs while reducing the risk for environmental and safety hazards associated with vacuum truck exhaust and other equipment emissions:
Mitigation of Safety Hazards
- Prevents condensate from reaching the carbon
- Keeps temperatures down in the carbon vessels
- Captures harmful vapors and odors including H2S
- Extends useful life of carbon, reducing need for additional fresh carbon
- Reduced frequency of stoppages related to carbon change-outs
