  • What`s the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?

    Air pollution control equipment is not something that business owners address by saying, “Let’s do the right thing for the environment and install an oxidizer!” In fact, the scenario is more likely to be “We need to increase productivity (always a good thing!), but that will put us over our annual emissions limits. Do we know what we will need? Where do we start? Who can ...

  • LED Applications for Oil and Gas Refining and Processing

    Oil and gas processing facilities are unsafe due to the existence of hazardous compounds during operations. When addressing such issues, companies in the sector may deploy explosion proof lighting systems to prevent the ignition of sparks created from the electrical equipment. The adoption of LED technology in oil and gas refineries has helped reinforce key safety measures associated with ...

  • Understanding the dangers of combustible dust

    Paper shredding is growing into a big business. Recycling and the green movement certainly planted the seeds, but regulators have added the fertilizer. Industry-changing laws have been passed to govern document security in accounting, healthcare and banking, and shredders of many varieties are becoming the tools of those trades.Five or six years ago Warde Comeaux knew only a few people who ...

  • Application of combustion analyzers in safety instrumented systems

    The combustion process has always been considered having the potential for a hazardous event which could lead to personnel injury or loss of production. To mitigate this risk, the process industry is now implementing Safety Instrumented Systems which can identify hazardous operating conditions and correctly respond in such a way to bring the combustion process back to a safe operating condition ...

  • Paint booths, or areas using combustible gases: why a requirement for combustible gas monitor might be necessary

    Paint booths save time and ensure a smooth and professional application of paint in a range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, home decor, furniture, and more. Combustible gases and fluids in the paint booth environment can pose a health hazard if something goes wrong. Explore the hidden dangers of paint booth fluids and gases, and learn how a ...

  • Overview and status of post-combustion NOx control: SNCR, SCR and hybrid technologies

    Requirements for reduced NOx emissions have required that emissions reduction technologies move beyond combustion controls alone. Post combustion NOx control technologies that are being applied to coalfired utility boilers include selective non catalytic reduction (SNCR), selective catalytic reduction (SCR), and combined SNCR/SCR systems (hybrid SNCR/SCR). This ...

  • Advances in control of PM2.5 and PM2.5 precursors generated by the combustion of pulverised coal

    Particulate matter smaller than 2.5 mm in aerodynamic diametre (PM2.5) from coal-fired boilers is composed of directly emitted (primary) particles and particles formed from precursors (secondary particles). Technologies to reduce emissions of precursors to secondary PM2.5 emitted by coal-fired utility plants include wet and dry flue gas desulphurisation (FGD). Limestone forced ...

  • 5th-Generation Thermox WDG Flue Gas Combustion Analyzer

    "For more than 40 years, we have been a leader in combustion gas analysis," says Mike Fuller, divison VP of sales and marketing and business development for Ametek Process Instruments, "and we believe the WDG-V is the combustion analyzer of the future." WDG analyzers are based on a zirconium oxide cell that provides a reliable and cost-effective solution for measuring excess oxygen in flue gas as ...

  • The landfill gas collection, utilisation and surplus gas combustion acting in unison

    In landfill gas utilisation the basic task of the control system is to harmonise three completely independent processes. On the one hand, there is the gas production of the landfill which is inconstant. (From a price point of view, hardly worthwhile to store the gas in a gasometer) On the other side the independent gas utilisation process, which orientates itself to the requirement of the ...

  • Cost-Effective NOx Control for Air-Preheated Systems

    New advancements in combustion control technologies, such as flue gas recirculation (FGR) and low NOx burners (LNB), have made it possible to achieve ultra low NOx levels without using expensive post-combustion flue gas clean-up technology. For some natural draft units it may be possible to meet the most stringent of the NOx regulations with cost-effective combustion control technologies. For ...

  • A process for synthesising polymeric ferric sulphate using sulphur dioxide from coal combustion

    We propose a process that uses sulphur dioxide from coal combustion as a raw material to synthesise polymeric ferric sulphate (PFS), a water treatment agent. The process uses sodium chlorate as an oxidant and ferrous sulphate as an absorbent. Sodium carbonate is used as the regulator of the polymerisation process. The major chemical mechanisms in this reaction system include oxidation, ...
