  • Emission control solutions for biomass and coal combustion sector - Energy - Bioenergy

    Emission control solutions for biomass and coal combustion sector

    For particulate matter (PM) emission control in high temperature exhaust streams, such as those from biomass or coal boilers and heaters, common dedusters such as cyclones and multicyclones are not able to comply with current emission limits. This is mainly due to their low efficiency, particularly for small particles (less than 10µm). In order to meet emission limits this usually requires an additional investment in a final stage deduster. Bag filters (BF) are very efficient dedusters. They can also be...

  • Emission control solutions for fuel oil combustion sector - Oil, Gas & Refineries - Oil

    Emission control solutions for fuel oil combustion sector

    For PM emission control in high temperature exhaust streams, such as those from fuel oil boilers, common dedusters like Bag filters, have very high maintenance costs. The diesel and fuel oil fly ash can be quite sticky and clog to filter elements, which can be minimized with costly protection reagents or frequent filter elements changes. Flue gas cooling is needed in front of the filter when temperatures are higher than 200 ºC.

  • Emission control solutions for steel and ferroalloys sector - Metal - Steel

    Emission control solutions for steel and ferroalloys sector

    Steel and ferroalloysmanufacturing processes involve high temperature exhaust streams, often at more than 900ºC. Typically, the gas flows from the furnace (usually electric arch type) and goes into a gas conditioning tower to cool down below 200ºC so that it can be treated by a Bag Filter. It`s also common to have ESP´s as end dedusters that can be preceded by a multicyclone serving as pre-separators.

  • Emission control solutions for calcination processes sector - Energy

    Emission control solutions for calcination processes sector

    In calcination processes, solid intermediates and products are regularly handled in the fine powder form (ex: kaolin or metakaulin). 
    There is a need to separate these very fine powders from the exhaust streams of calciners, fluid bed dryers or incinerators, often at critical temperature conditions. For PM emission control at very high temperature ( >600 ºC), traditional bag filters following temperature exchangers or scrubbers are used as end stage dedusters.

  • Emission control solutions for pyrolisis, incineration and gasification sector - Energy - Waste to Energy

    Emission control solutions for pyrolisis, incineration and gasification sector

    For PM emission control in very high temperature exhaust streams ( >600ºC ), such as gasification, pyrolysis and incineration, traditional bag filters following temperature exchangers, ceramic filters, or scrubbers are used as end stage dedusters. For most arrangements, a primary high temperature separator, namely a cyclone, is important to reduce as much ash and char as possible. A good efficiency is important to reduce concentration of solids to the final stage dedusters, avoiding plugging of scrubbers...

  • Emission control solutions for Glass and ceramic furnaces sector - Glassware

    Emission control solutions for Glass and ceramic furnaces sector

    Glass and ceramic furnacesare typically associated with emissions of very fine particles (< 5 µm) in combination with high temperatures and load. An increasingly higher number of furnaces are powered with biomass fuel, further raising the level of particulate emissions that need to be treated, in order to comply with stricter regulatory limits. Solving this problem may or not require a two stage dedusting system such a cyclone pre-separation system followed by an ESP. Client`s needsfrequentl...

  • Emission control solutions for air caption & dedusting sector - Air and Climate

    Emission control solutions for air caption & dedusting sector

    Several industries face problems from dust released during product transportation or processing. This is the case of the Textile, Wood Processing, Mining, Ink Manufacturing and other industries. Frequently, in order to maintain an appropriate level of particles suspended in the air (usually measured in Parts per Million by Volume), dust is extracted with air in strategically positioned caption points and typically recovered in cyclones or in bag filters.

  • Emission control solutions for high temperature separation & energy recovery sector - Energy

    Emission control solutions for high temperature separation & energy recovery sector

    Given the difficulties in achieving results by increasing revenues, companies are turning more and more to cutting costs. Reducing energy consumption has become the target for many companies. In sectors as the cement, particleboard manufacturing, inceneration,among others, energy is demanded mostly in the form of heat. Most companies are retrofitting their boilers and thermal oil heaters to run with biomass, instead of oil or coal, to reduce costs and become more eco-friendly. Still too, much of the...

  • Emission control solutions for oil & gas industry - Oil, Gas & Refineries

    Emission control solutions for oil & gas industry

    In Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC)processes, widely used in oil refineries, the separation and recovery of powder catalysts is a major concern. Particularly, the concentration of catalyst after the FCC regenerator is usually over 150 mg/Nm3. Since these levels of emissions didn`t represent any environmental harm in the past, they were not controlled by any separator or filter. Plant managers main concern was to clean a fraction of the gas to produce energy in a Turbo Expander, or similar, while concentrating...

  • Emission control solutions for biomass milling & drying sector - Energy - Bioenergy

    Emission control solutions for biomass milling & drying sector

    Pelletsare typically manufactured from wood chips and sawdust. The wet raw material in usually grinded in a hammer mill and then dried in a rotary dryer heated by a biomass furnace. The material is then collected in dryer cyclones to be pelletized. The air conveying the wet grinded material is cleaned with a particulate filter before going to the atmosphere. A common type of filter used for this application is the cyclo-filter, which combines the operating principles of cyclones with a cartridge filter on top...

    Product recovery solutions for nanoparticles industry

    An increasingly high number of industries, from the fine chemicals to the cosmetics industry, are investing on the design and production of nanoparticles, such as metal oxides, in specific reactors. There is a need to recover these very fine powders from the exhaust streams often at high temperature, pressure and moisture. The very fine particle size precludes the use of mechanical collectors by themselves. The main problem of using barrier filters is product hold-up and breakage of the nanoparticles. Client`s...

Client`s needs include an efficient cyclone either for minimizing the escape of particles to downstream sections of the process at very high temperatures or to recover the maximum...

  • Emission control & air dedusting for Fertilizers - Agriculture

    Emission control & air dedusting for Fertilizers

    The recovery of fertilizers typically after drying tunnels or drum dryers is associated with a high load of particulates and very humid gas streams. The recovery of these products is commonly performed by dryer cyclones as they allow for a direct powder capture and avoid filter clogging due to condensation. Arrangements with cyclones and/or with bag filters are usual in the industry.
