Caldo has established designs of hot gas filtration equipment in sizes ranging from pilot plants with 36 or less elements to full-scale production units containing more than 1000 elements in a single vessel.
Caldo supplies complete pollution control systems for the treatment of hot gases to meet the EC atmospheric emission limits as set out in directive 2000/76/EC. Caldo works with third parties to develop complete solutions for the incineration of difficult wastes.
Ceramic Filter Elements
Caldo supplies ceramic filter elements, gaskets and other ceramic filter components to end-users and OEMs internationally. The supply of these components is backed up by Caldo expertise in the design of ceramic filter vessels.
Caldo supports its customers with advice and problem solving based on its extensive experience of the use of ceramic filters in a wide range of applications.
Hot Gas Filtration Equipment
Caldo has successfully introduced a new design concept for ceramic filters containing 500 - 1500 elements. This allows hot gas filtration using ceramic elements to be considered for a wider range of applications than before.
For filters up to 500 elements, i.e. capacities up to about 8,500 Am3/h, Caldo has long-standing established designs of filter vessels. Caldo has experience of successfully specifying ceramic filtration equipment for a wide range of duties.
Pollution Control Systems
Hot gas filters can form the basis for systems to remove all of the pollutants in emissions to atmosphere from incinerators, furnaces, kilns and other high temperature equipment.
Complete Caldo systems can comprise some or all of the treatment stages:
Incineration of Difficult Wastes
Caldo works with a UK company, Explosive and Ordnance Demilitarisation Solutions Ltd (EODS) to design, manufacture and supply complete solutions for the thermal disposal of munitions, typically small arms ammunition.
In this collaboration Caldo supplies engineering design and manufacturing skills to support EODS's knowledge of the end-user requirements. This joint approach has been successful; several incinerators have been built and more are in the pipeline.
Third parties with knowledge of other incinerator opportunities are encouraged to contact Caldo and review their requirements.
Caldo - Hot Gas Ceramic Filters
Caldo hot gas filters are high temperature equipment items for the continuous removal of particulates from air or other hot gases. The equipment consists of ceramic filter elements installed in bespoke vessels fitted with proprietary mechanical parts.
Caldo - Specialised Incinerators
Collaboration with EODS; One of the first pollution control systems that Caldo supplied was a ceramic filter for the removal of particulates and acid gases from waste gas produced by the incineration of ammunition at the MoD site at Shoeburyness. It was clear at the time that the incineration end of the process was quite basic, with potential to improve portability, reducing both capital and running costs.
