  • High efficient cyclone systems with electrostatic recirculation for particulate matter (PM) emission control

    The development of new optimized dedusting systems has particular and increasing relevance for atmospheric particulate emission control. Indeed, traditional "particulatetraps" present several disadvantages that foster the search for alternative solutions. Industrial cyclones are, for their robust construction, absence of moving parts and general application, an appropriate technology for emission ...

  • The implement of the electro-static and magnetic precipitation technique through the centeral air-conditioning systems

    In this paper we will introduce the electrostatic and magnetic precipitation technique, to deposit the solid dust within the air–conditioning systems .Recently such technique becomes a very important subject for human life and to the college and universities, both the teaching, and researching programs. Viruses can be spread very fast, where the central air-condition systems probably take the ...


  • Controlling acid gas mists

    Gas cleaning New and strict pollution regulations in metallurgical plants worldwide are restricting particulate and acid gas emissions to extremely low levels. Because of that, sulphuric acid plants are being installed to remove and utilise S02 in gases resulting from the roasting of sulphide ores, smelting of ores, and burning or regeneration of spent acid or acid sludge from ...

  • Particulate Control Strategies for Incineration

    Abstract This paper discusses various particulate emission control strategies that can be employed for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), Municipal Sewage Sludge, and Industrial Waste Incineration facilities. An example will be given of a particulate control installation that successfully cleans off-gases from an incinerator at a large photographic products plant. Data supporting a theoretical ...


  • Mercury Control Demonstrations

    C1.1 | Halogens and Sulfur in Coals and their Influence on Co-benefit Mercury Capture Bernhard Vosteen | President, Vosteen Consulting Gmbh Not only the range of the coal mercury content itself, but also the range of the native halogen and sulfur contents in coal are of great influence on co-benefit mercury capture, wet and dry. The ...

  • Controlling Stack Emissions in the Wood Products Industry & Wood Fired Boilers

    Electrostatic precipitation has been a reliable technology since the early 1900's. Originally developed to abate serious smoke nuisances, the manufacturers of zinc, copper, and lead quickly found electric gas cleaning a cost efficient way to recover valuable product carried out of the stacks from furnace operations. Today electrostatic precipitators are found mainly on large power plants, cement ...

  • Innovative Dryer and Emission Control System at a Particleboard Installation

    In 1989, Bohemia Corporation installed a new primary drying system and also air pollution control equipment at their particleboard plant in Eugene, Oregon. The drying system was composed of a Westec America triple-pass rotary drum dryer fired by a Coen sanderdust burner. The primary and secondary particulate collectors installed were also of a Westec America design. The tertiary air pollution ...

  • Possible reuse of Egyptian controlled cement dust

    Possibilities for the reuse of controlled cement dust, collected from the hopper of the electrostatic precipitators installed on the different cement kilns of two of the three biggest companies for Portland cement production located to the south of Cairo, have been investigated. Twenty-one factors representing the physical properties and mineral and chemical composition of the cement dust were ...

  • Modest Growth for Air Pollution Control Market

    The Clean Air Act amendments of 1990 created a wave of optimism in the air pollution control (APC) business. The subsequent decade, however, resulted in backwash of disappointment for APC companies as the market for stationary source equipment declined from 1-4% per year from 1993-1998. Growth returned to the APC market, however, with 1999 and 2000 characterized as 'good' years by the Institute ...
