A.H. Lundberg Associates, Inc. is an engineering and equipment systems company located in Bellevue, Washington, USA. The company, with its affiliates, has been extensively involved with the pulp and paper industry since 1977. The main engineering office of the corporation is located in Bellevue, Washington, with additional sales offices in the United States and sales representation worldwide. We are also affiliated with A. H. Lundberg Systems, Ltd., which has an engineering office in Richmond, B.C., Canada.
The main focus of business for the corporation has been in the areas of environmental controls, energy savings, by-product recovery, and chemical handling in the pulp and paper industry, and today we are the leader in these areas.
A major product line expansion occurred in the environmental controls area for us in 2002. At that time we brought on board Mr. Steve Jaasund and Mr. Gary Raemhild, former principals with Geoenergy International and purchased the intellectual property of Geoenergy International Corporation. This includes wet electrostatic precipitator (Wet ESP), regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) and regenerative catalytic oxidizer (RCO) technology. This acquisition provided the base for our Geoenergy® Division of Lundberg Associates. Since that time several other former key personnel from Geoenergy have been brought on board.
This development not only increases our ability to provide the correct air pollution solution under one entity, it also expands our efforts into the engineered wood products field, as well as any industry addressing issues of VOC and particulate emissions.
Over the years we have also expanded from an equipment and engineering supplier. A.H. Lundberg Associates is currently a leader in the pulp and paper industry in turnkey projects offering complete turnkey construction of multiple systems. A.H. Lundberg Associates has the ability to provide more than 30 independent systems including multiple effect evaporators, high solids concentrators, blow heat, stripper, noncondensible gas and chemical generation systems.
Our largest turnkey project to date is valued at approximately $20,000,000 US. Most of our projects are repeat orders from our list of satisfied clients.
At A.H. Lundberg Associates, we utilize the latest in CAD design technology combined with our staff of chemical, electrical, instrument, civil, process, and mechanical engineers to ensure that every project is completed to the highest standards possible. Our company is committed to our quality process, and has maintained ISO 9001 certification since 1998.
Batch Blow Head Recovery System
The collection of the NCG from the digester blow requires the efficient condensing of the blow vapors without relief to the atmosphere or the intake of ambient air into the system. The batch blow releases a large amount of heat in a short time resulting in a high condensing water demand, thus most systems are direct contact condensing.
Condensate Stripping System
Steam stripping of foul process condensates is recognized as an efficient method for the removal of methanol and Total Reduced Sulfur (TRS) compounds. Methanol is formed during the pulping process through a reaction with the lignin in the wood. TRS compounds, principally hydrogen sulfide and methyl mercaptan along with other compounds are also formed during pulping.
