Toxic Gas Scrubbing

Trust us to be there when you need help most. The EPA Risk Management Program for Chemical Accident Release Prevention “requires regulated facilities to develop and implement appropriate risk management programs to minimize the frequency and severity of chemical plant accidents.”


Water and wastewater treatment facilities, oil and gas refineries, and pulp and paper mills are concerned about accidental releases of toxic gases stored for process use. A toxic gas release poses a very real risk to human life in the surrounding community, up to a five-mile radius in all directions. Built to mitigate risk to human life in potentially catastrophic gas releases, scrubbers are designed to handle releases from 150 pounds to over three tons of gas release.

The Solution

Chlorosorb Ultra

Chlorosorb® Ultra is especially formulated for use in Purafil’s emergency gas scrubbers to provide protection from a catastrophic release of chlorine gas from on-site storage.  The removal capacity for chlorine gas is 15% minimum by weight and can remove chlorine gas from storage cylinders ranging from 150 pounds to one ton and higher.

Emergency Gas Scrubber (EGS)

An Emergency Gas Scrubber is designed to control catastrophic gas releases from 68 kg (150 lb.) to over 2,727 kg (6,000 lb.) while mitigating any risk to human lives in the surrounding communities. This scrubber prevents toxic chlorine (Cl2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), or ammonia (NH3) gas releases, resulting from a failure in the storage cylinder or system, by providing immediate removal of leaking gas. Nothing is more important than protecting the safety of the people living nearby.

Media Life Analysis

Provided as a complimentary service, Purafil’s lab analyzes media samples from your air scrubber to determine the remaining life. You can then schedule a replacement date to ensure the protected space is not exposed to gas breakthrough or that your media is replaced prematurely.
