Siloxanes - What are they?
Siloxanes are a subgroup of silica compounds containing Si-O bonds with organic radicals attached to the silica molecule including methyl and ethyl groups, among others.
These compounds are widely used in various industrial processes and are frequently added to consumer products (shampoos, toothpastes, lotions, paper products, paints, oils,...).
What do they do?
Siloxanes creates a fouling layer in engines, turbines, boilers, among others, contributing to a malfunction and premature wear of the equipment.
Solution - Siloxanes Reactor
The reactor is made of stainless steel, with retention time, which considers a major security reserve for possible peak concentrations and flow rates.
The adsorbent used is doped activated carbon increasing about ten times its adsorption capacity.
Using the Siloxanes Reactor in a biogas contaminated with sitoxanes allows a greater number of operating hours between services, increasing the life of pistons, liners, spark plugs.
