Title: Gas scrubbing device

An improved scrubbing device suitable for use in modular paint spray booths for extracting particulate matter entrained in a gas stream. The device includes an angularly inclined flood sheet adapted to be flooded with a continuous sheet of liquid and formed with a trough having a plurality of removable venturis disposed in spaced relationship through which the gas stream passes in a manner to effect atomization of the liquid flowing therethrough for scrubbing and extracting the particulate matter in the gas stream. Each venturi can be readily removed for periodic cleaning and service as well as replacement by alternative venturi configurations to modify the scrubbing characteristics thereof consistent with changes in the type and loading of particulate matter in the gas stream thereby achieving continuous optimum operating efficiency.
