  • Tri-NOx Multi-Chem Wet Scrubber. Case Study of Our NOx Scrubber in a Plastics Resin Plant.

    As part of a commitment to reduce airborne emissions – or even the threat of such emissions – the Mt. Vernon, IN plant of GE Plastics has installed a NOx scrubber. When such GE Plastics products as Ultem resins are produced, nitric acid is used, and emissions from this step are tightly controlled. But to address upset conditions, the company opted to install an emergency scrubber that can treat ...

  • Cross-flow scrubber design case study from Kimre

    Cross-flow or, Horizontal-flow scrubber design is almost never mentioned in chemical engineering literature. Textbooks (1) used at universities for future engineers, undergraduate as well as graduate level students, invariably only discuss counter-current vertical scrubber tower design. Likewise, professional reference texts (2) generally provide little or no mention of horizontal cross-flow ...

  • Scrubers with a level head

    The available methods for removing pollutants from a gas stream are numerous, to say the least. A popular method, scrubbers allow users to separate gases and solids by allowing the gas to come into contact with a liquid stream. In the end, the pollutants are washed away in the effluent, and the gas exits the system to be used in later processes or to be released into the atmosphere. For many ...

  • Case study - RTOs leave nothing to HAP-penstance

    PROBLEM The United States EPA promulgated a ruling in 40 CFR, imposing strict new standards to reduce emissions of toxic air pollutants from the manufacture of pharmaceutical products, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The agency's rule was intended to reduce emissions of a number of air toxins and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), including methylene chloride, ...

  • To MACT and Beyond case study

    In the 1970s, FMC Corp., a chemical manufacturer headquartered in Philadelphia, began operating a high-efficiency thermal destruction facility to dispose of hazardous liquid wastes at its Baltimore pesticide manufacturing plant. The facility used a thermal oxidizer with a rapid quencher and packed tower scrubber to remove air pollution emissions. The system was upgraded in the early ’80s ...

  • Case study - ETO sterilizer abatement

    OVERVIEW Product sterilization companies are generally required to utilize a pollution control device for treatment of exhaust gases from their aeration room and sterilization chambers.  In the United States, they need to be in compliance with NESHAP (National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants) regulations that dictate a 99% destruction efficiency of EtO (Ethylene ...

  • Coal fired power plant achieves ZLD for FGD wastewater

    The Facility Illinois’ City of Springfield’s Dallman Power Station’s three coal-fired units and soon to be installed fourth unit, are equipped with flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems (scrubbers) to control sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions. The Problem A sharp increase in boron concentration in the FGD wastewater required that The City ...

  • Recovering Valuable Chemicals from Air Emissions

    Air emissions in many cases are a waste of valuable natural resources that should have become useful chemicals. In some cases the economic payback from recycling/reuse of air emissions can be almost as much a motivation to control air pollution as government regulations. Examples of recycling and reuse of air emissions are sulfur oxides emissions that can be made into sulfuric acid, cement ...


  • Case study - Corrosion protection in a pulp and paper industry

    It is widely accepted that corrosion has an important economic impact at an industrial scale. As an example, results of a study carried out in the US showed that the total annual estimated direct cost of corrosion in the country was $276 billion, which was approximately 3.1% of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Thus, within the last few decades, an important effort has been made to ...

  • Material Matters - An Engineering and Fabrication Challenge

    The world of engineering is a very large and diverse universe which ranges from electrial, mechanical and civil to environmentaland structural. It is true that their varied disciplines have many qualities in common, e.g. the mixture of logic, creativity, awareness of cost /benefit ratio etc., are requirements of all engineering. It is equally true that each discipline has its own mind set, ...

  • Solving waste oil management and removal problems in power generating plants

    If your plant is like most, it is doing a good job of preventing oily water waste and waste oils from escaping into the environment. But at what cost? As labor resources dwindle, operating and maintaining drainage systems, oil separators, and sometimes inadequate oil removal equipment is expensive. Paying higher than needed costs for waste oil disposal, filtration and water treatment due to these ...

  • New laser-based dust emission monitoring system

    Abstract A new generation of continuous particulate matter concentration monitoring instruments is presented, covering a measuring range of 0 to 1000 mg/m3. The laser-based scattered light instrument gives an improved stability as well as excellent resolution in the low range. This enables high concentration measurement as well as especially low emission monitoring down to 0.01 mg/m3 with a ...
