What are the common problems when using wet scrubbers?

Share this post :

Common problems during the use of wet scrubbers include:

Drainage issues: Drainage issues are one of the common problems. A wet scrubber may drain slowly or not drain at all, which may be caused by a clogged drain line, pump failure, clogged filter, etc.

Water Leakage: Wet scrubbers can suffer from water leakage issues, usually due to poor door seals, pipe connection issues, broken pump seals, etc.

Not starting or stopping: Wet scrubbers may have issues with not starting or stopping suddenly, which may be related to power issues, electronic control failures, motor issues, or sensor issues.

Noise and vibration: After long-term use, some parts of the wet scrubber may wear out, causing noise and abnormal vibration.

Motor problems: The motor may have problems such as difficulty starting, not spinning, or not stopping, which may require replacement of the motor or repair of motor parts.

Temperature issues: Wet scrubbers may not be able to maintain the correct water temperature, which may be caused by a faulty heating element or sensor problem.

Odor issues: Odors can develop inside a wet scrubber, usually due to trapped dirt and humidity. Regular cleaning and maintenance can alleviate this problem.

Poor filtration effect: If the wet scrubber cannot effectively process the exhaust gas components or the treatment efficiency is reduced, it may be related to the washing liquid, emission components or mechanical problems.

Control panel issues: Your wet scrubber may have issues with its control panel buttons, such as the buttons becoming unresponsive or damaged.

Solutions to these problems may vary depending on the situation. Generally speaking, you can try to clear the blockage, inspect and replace damaged parts, perform maintenance and cleaning, or contact professional maintenance personnel for repairs. For electronic control problems and serious mechanical problems, repairs are best left to professional service personnel. Before making any repairs, be sure to turn off power and water to ensure safety.

Here are some solutions to common wet scrubber problems:

Drainage issues:

  • Clear clogs in drain lines.
  • Clean the drain pump filter.
  • Check whether the drainage pump is working properly, clear the blockage in the pump or replace the damaged pump.

Water leakage:

  • Check the door seal for damage. If there is any problem, replace the sealing ring.
  • Check that the pipe connections are tight and make sure there are no leaks.
  • Check the pump seal for damage and replace if necessary.

Not starting or stopping:

  • Make sure the wet scrubber is connected to the power source and powered properly.
  • Check whether the electronic control panel is working properly and repair or replace if necessary.
  • Check whether the motor is working properly. If there is any problem, replace the motor or repair the motor parts.
  • Check whether the sensor is working properly. If there is any problem, replace the sensor.

Noise and vibration:

  • Make sure the wet scrubber is placed smoothly and well balanced.
  • Check the shock absorbers and support feet, and replace damaged parts if there are any problems.

Electronic control issues:

  • Try restarting the wet scrubber, disconnecting and reconnecting power.
  • If you are still having issues with the control panel, contact the manufacturer or a professional service technician for repair recommendations.

Temperature issue:

  • If the exhaust gas temperature is too high and exceeds the design temperature of the wet scrubber, a pre-condenser can be installed to reduce the exhaust gas temperature.

Odor problem:

  • Run the wet scrubber’s self-cleaning program regularly.
  • Clean your washer’s rubber seals, troughs and filters.
  • Use washing machine cleaner to remove odors.

Poor filtering:

  • Ensure that the exhaust air volume is within the reasonable design range of the scrubber. If the air volume is higher than the design air volume of the scrubber, the treatment effect will be reduced.
  • Ensure the pH value of the washing liquid and add acidic or alkaline washing liquid in time.
  • Check the operating status of the fan. The working efficiency of the fan will directly affect the processing efficiency of the wet scrubber.
  • Perform regular internal cleaning and maintenance of the scrubber.

Control panel issues:

  • Clean control panel keys.
  • Check for loose or damaged wires or connections.
  • If there is a problem, contact the manufacturer or a professional repairman for repair suggestions.

Please note that some problems, especially electrical and complex mechanical problems, are best repaired by a professional repairman. Before making any repairs, be sure to turn off power and water to ensure safety. It’s best to follow the repair manual provided by the manufacturer or contact the manufacturer’s customer support for professional advice.
