Venturi Scrubbing System (VSS) Expertise

Norton Engineering is a leader in the engineering and application of environmental control systems for many different emissions sources, including refinery Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) units, power plants, Fluid Cokers, and other applications. Our highly experienced process, environmental and equipment specialists assist our world class clients in deciding on the best technology to meet their individual emissions control needs at the lowest cost.

Our engineers have many years of practical experience in emissions control dating back to 1970. We have developed many generations of emissions control technologies, and evaluated many other emissions control technologies; designed, operated and optimized numerous systems to reduce SO2, NOx and Particulate Matter (PM, Mechanical Dust).

Wet Gas Scrubbers have been around for a long time to aide in the removal of Sulfur Oxides (SOx) and Particulate Matter (PM) from flue gases. If not properly engineered, the addition of this system can add significant costs to your operation. Starting from the right basis, understanding the specific operations including available equipment and utilities will improve your chances of a successful project.

Norton offers our proprietary Venturi Scrubbing System (VSS) technology and engineering solutions to customers with an objective to reduce emissions while maintaining reliability and managin operating costs. We design our systems to ensure that they will not become a bottleneck or require an emergency shutdown for costly repairs.

Our new patent pending VS Tower technology incorporates our knowledge in venturi scrubbing in a system that offers reduced capital costs while controlling emissions lower than typically seen in venturi scrubbing systems.  The VS Tower technology can be utilized in many different applications throughout the refining and chemical industries for not only emissions control, but in services such as reactor quench systems.

We offer innovative engineering solutions from a highly experienced team of professionals that have pioneered improvements in wet gas scrubbing. Our experts will design a solution that fits your flue gas composition, reliability goals, runtime expectations, operational constraints, emission levels, wastewater treatment requirements, and environmental sensitivities. Unlike our competitors, we provide superior engineering to warrant a smooth system integration while helping you deal with change that may impact future emission levels.
