control equipment which either converts the pollutant chemically to a non-polluting substance or collects the pollutant by some means including gravity settling chambers, inertial separators, cyclonic separators, filters, electrical precipitators, scrubbers, (spray towers, jet scrubbers, Venturi scrubbers, inertial scrubbers, mechanical scrubbers and packed scrubbers). Certain gases and odoriferous compounds are controlled by combustion, absorption (spray chambers, mechanical contactors, bubble cap or sieve plate contactors and packed towers) and adsorption units (packed beds or fluidized beds).
