Also send instructions on scrubbing solution (concentration, volume used, etc.)

We can test with plain caustic, peroxide then caustic (nitric duty only, as halides catalyze peroxide decomposition per Cl<Br<<I), and reductive mixes. Of those, plain caustic performs the least.

We can also use what I consider to be the gold standard in NOx scrubber solution, BioNox Solver. That solution I like better than the NaOH/NaHS solution we used to use.

All that glitters is not gold. Occasionally it's rhodium :)

Hmmmm. I want to try and setup my air "purification" system so that I can run this material
in AR. The only way I will attempt this indoors (as is the claim of the seller) is because
I will do it in a warehouse with 30 foot ceilings. I'm having trouble reading and understanding
the "instructions" though. I have reached out to the seller for help. I'm not interested in setting
this "air purifier" system up incorrectly and attempting it's use indoors without knowing that it
is hooked up right! :o

I really do hope that it will work as described here and on ebay. It would help me refine some other
material that I have as well. 8)

OK, the seller did email me the updated instructions for the scrubber that was shipped to me
that finally make sense of what I received. Let me try and get it assembled and functional soon. :)

I decided to send off this e-scrap to tndavid who graciously refined it for me.

I still have this unused scrubber here. Just waiting to get brave and try it out. :lol:

Will you all help me with the physics/math for redesigning this scrubber?

I think I understand how it works, so if 8 seconds contact time is required, what about this system but a 55 gallon drum with 3-5 tall cylinders inside, draw the fumes through each one in a row, one by one?

The vacuum to be replaced, with a proper pump/blower...

Fumes go from processing unit, to 55 gallon drum, enters first cylinder, bubbles up, moves to second cylinder, bubbles up, moves to third, bubbles up, and exits the drum via vent cap, where testing of fumes can take place.

The drum becomes the scrubber unit.
