The Hayward Gordon Attrition Scrubber was designed for simplicity, and performance. Hayward Gordon uses a combination of applied mechanical shear and fluid shear to promote a highly intense region of particle interaction. This high intensity attrition zone will have a far more profound impact on particle conditioning, which includes particulate fracturing, agglomeration breakdown, and particle oxidation removal etc. than mechanical shear alone.
Hayward Gordon Attrition Scrubbers have an underflow / overflow arrangement and, rather than stacking a number of high shear impellers in a mixing vessel, Hayward Gordon uses a dual impeller, up-pumping / down-pumping arrangement. See the following diagram.
Hayward Gordon Attrition Scrubbers come in two basic configurations, “Simplex” and “Duplex”. Simplex is a single cell Attrition Scrubber arrangement and the Duplex is a dual cell in a single tank Attrition Scrubber arrangement. The Hayward Gordon Attrition Scrubber design allows for the add-on of additional scrubber cells to create a scrubber train of as many cells as the process requires.
