Flue gas from waste incineration must be cleaned before it is released into the environment. Flue gas scrubbers do this by removing acidic gas components such as sulphur dioxide. Lime water is used as the washing solution and it is sprayed in against the flow of the gas. The lime deposits filtered out of the washing water are used as gypsum, e.g. for the production of plasterboard. To ensure a continuous scrubbing process, a constant level in the scrubbing tower is required.
