Fort Washington, Pa., June 13, 2002 - Severn Trent Services has introduced two, new models of the EST Dry Emergency Scrubber.

The products are engineered for use in industrial and municipal applications, where chlorine and sulfur dioxide are stored as liquefied hazardous gases under their own vapor pressure.

The two, new models of the EST Dry Emergency Scrubber can handle gas releases from 150-pound cylinders and 1-ton containers designed to meet room exhaust requirements of up to 7000 cfm. The systems are designed to operate at sub-zero temperatures without the use of heaters. In addition, dry scrubbers do not require liquid chemical leak containment or double wall construction.

Emergency scrubber technology, both wet and dry, is used on a stand-by, emergency basis to provide neutralization of hazardous gases in the event of a worst-case leak scenario.

For applications requiring up to one ton of gaseous scrubbing, the EST Dry Emergency Scrubber offers alternatives to traditional wet scrubbers and contains a dry absorbent media, which provides for a safe operator environment and requires little maintenance or operator attention. In addition, waste products produced by dry emergency scrubbers are non-hazardous.

Worldwide, Severn Trent Services is the only supplier with the capability to supply wet packed, wet pack-less, and, now, dry emergency scrubbers for hazardous gas release mitigation meeting the prevailing codes. All models are built in the U.S.
