I've seen and semi-read dissertations about the subject and yes, there's 
a lot to it.
But I've searched long enough, to find formulas, that allow dimensioning 
with a pocket
calculator - I've done it before, actually for a vacuum cleaner to empty 
cans of wood ash.
This works very well and can be scaled down a bit, if required.

maybe it's spelled Orky / no, it's the other way round: a jet of bubbles 
(that simply form) is injected into
a bath of water (potentially with some tensides) by submerging a nozzle. 
The jet then forms a system of
vortices in the bath, that make the bubble-trails longer and finer, so 
the contact area is maximized

Sounds Good

For a quick start of the project, one of the turbines should be fine.
Once we know, the gas washer and the cyclone work, we can still
optimize, by making it comfortable.
