AirPol’s vast amount of experience in creating custom solutions for the process in front of air pollution control (APC) systems gives us a decided edge in designing the appropriate APC system.
Every stage of the mining process, including the extraction, generation of solid waste, and refining and processing, creates air pollution that has environmental and public health impacts. AirPol has extensive experience in designing mining air pollution solutions for particulate collection, air purification, and destruction of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These mining air pollution solutions can also be applied to the specialty metal recovery industries.
Acid gases, such as sulfur oxides SOx , hydrogen chloride HCl, and hydrogen fluoride HF, are removed from dirty airstreams by absorption into an alkali liquid. This liquid can be a sodium or calcium (lime)-based solution.
Robust air pollution control systems are required in the aggressive manufacturing processes of chemical manufacturing and incineration processes. Wet pollution control technologies are ideal for these tough environments. Variable-throat venturis provide constant particulate emissions control even in varying process conditions. WESPs are often required to meet fine particulate emission regulations, and absorption stages are added to the system to remove gaseous contaminants.
