Ammonia Stripping Explained

NH3 Removal
Where ammonia is present in water to be treated, you can remove it using air stripping technology.

By a combination of pH adjustment and temperature, we calculate the tower size for any required efficiency. The most common application is for waste water at ambient temperature. By increasing the pH to 11, removals in the 80-90% range can be provided.

With large systems, the discharge air will need treatment to collect the ammonia. We provide a closed loop system where the discharge air is treated with an acid wash to form a salt from the ammonia and the air is reused in the stripper.
