An inlet scrubber is a type of air pollution control device used in the oil and gas industry to remove harmful pollutants from the air before they are released into the atmosphere. Inlet scrubbers are typically installed at the inlet of a gas turbine, compressor, or other type of equipment, and are designed to remove particulate matter, acid gases, and other pollutants from the incoming air stream.

Inlet scrubbers work by using a combination of chemical reactions, physical filters, and other advanced technologies to capture and remove pollutants from the incoming air stream. These systems can be designed to target specific pollutants, such as particulate matter or acid gases, or can be used to remove a wide range of contaminants. In addition to reducing the environmental impact of the oil and gas industry, inlet scrubbers can also help to increase the efficiency and lifespan of equipment, by reducing the amount of contaminants that can cause corrosion or damage to internal components.
