  • Mercury Removal from Ash

    A by-product from burning pulverized coal in electric power generating plants, fly ash can contain substantial levels of mercury which can negatively impact human health and the environment. Responding to the threat of mercury exposure, the EPA has established tough standards for the power industry to meet. Vulcan® Systems Thermal Desorption Units remove mercury from fly ash, making the end product reusable for concrete production. Through this process, power plants are able to create a new revenue stream through the sale of clean fly ash, eliminate expensive disposal costs, and protect the environment. Besides solving the disposal problem, adding fly ash to concrete improves the quality of the concrete. As a replacement for Portand Cement, the use of fly ash saves on material expenses, decreases permeability, and prevents expansion, thermal cracking, and efflorescence. It also increases working time, and makes pumping and finishing much easier.

    Fly Ash - Industrial Vacuum

    Fly Ash can cause many problems. The Vac-Con & Vector Pneumatic Vacuum systems can assist and solve many of these problems. Our high-performance vacuum systems are manufactured in three basic configurations: Truck mounted, Trailer mounted, and Fixed/static installed. Any of these systems can be integrated into the existing power plant design. All of our vacuum systems can be utilized to solve your plant’s fly ash removal/clean-up needs and can assist in many other maintenance projects. All can be tailored to fit into your power plant’s specific needs. Vac-Con Truck mounted Industrial vacuum systems are equipped with large storage debris tanks with self-cleaning intake filter systems. The Industrial Trucks vacuum the waste products through existing manifold piping or with hoses attached directly to the debris tank. When fully loaded, the truck can then drive directly to the disposal site and discharge the waste products. The Industrial Truck offers a great amount of flexibility of operation and can be utilized anywhere in your facility for many different types of normal and emergency maintenance operations. The Vac-Con Industrial Vacuum Truck can be utilized on both wet and dry materials. The same Vac-Con truck can be used for removing Fly Ash from your plant, coal from broken intake belt conveyors, or used to suck wet muddy material from storage lagoons. The Vector Trailer mounted Vacuum Systems are designed to be used in several locations around power plants. The Trailer mounted Vacuum Systems connect to Manifold piping located in key areas within your power plant. The Vacuum systems move the waste products from the plant and deposit these products into moveable storage containers. The loaded storage containers when full can then be moved to the disposal sites for discharge. Vector Static Mounted Vacuum systems are designed to vacuum and remove Fly Ash and other bulk waste products through manifold piping from operational areas of the plant and deposit these waste products into collection storage silos for later transport to disposal sites. The fixed vacuum systems are electric motor driven and are normally installed as a permanent addition to in-plant existing conveying systems. Please contact us with any requirements you may have. We will evaluate your request and respond with solutions specific to solve your problems and fit your needs.

    Recycling sorting solutions for the ash recycling

    Incinerated municipal solids and other waste streams results in a significant amount of ash residue, which often contains valuable metals. The amount of this remnant being created globally is rapidly increasing due to legislation which prohibits landfilling and creates new incentives for incineration. TOMRA Sorting sensor-based systems allow waste management businesses to capitalize on today’s challenges whilst simultaneously enabling them to look to the future with confidence.

  • Coal Combustion Residuals Disposal for Power Plants

    Coal combustion residuals (CCR) are generated during the power generation process and can include fly ash, bottom ash, boilerslag, and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) residuals. CCRs contain trace concentrations of heavy metals and therefore cannot be dumped or stored where rainwater can leach the metals. Liner systems can be used to contain the coal combustion by-products and protect them from leaching into the environment.
