Abstract

Ahmed Abdulwahid studied the wet scrubber that is used to improve the underground environment and to reduce the mining cost. He found that the three analyses that consist of experiments, thermodynamic and heat transfer analyses of the scrubber approved that the liquid temperature had a major effect on the heat loss from the scrubber. Increasing the inlet gas Reynolds number and/or temperature ratio affected the scrubber performance. Ahmed Abdulwahid suggested a new design of the wet scrubber to solve the existing problem of the high relative humidity of the outlet gas. This reduces the mining cost and improves the mining environment.
