What products do various gases form when they react with Lime water inside the Scrubber?

Dear student

 Lime is a calcium-containing inorganic mineral composed mainly of oxides, and hydroxide (calcium oxide or calcium hydroxide. 
When lime comes into contact with gas, it reacts by absorbing the pollutants on its surface. During process of scrubbing, Lime mainly reacts with sulphur gas.

Example - If lime reacts with Sulphur dioxide, it forms Calcium sulphite.
Ca(OH)2(s) + SO2(g) → CaSO3(s) + H2O(l)
