  • Minicipal Waste Incinerator Case History

    Low temperature plant operation had resulted in severe baghouse corrosion and constant dust blockages throughout the system. It was decided to raise the operational temperature of the incinerator and change the acid gas scrubbing agent from lime to sodium bicarbonate. However, the existing felt filter media could not cope with the change in acid gas scrubbing agent and “blinded” very rapidly ...

  • Dust monitoring with AirSafe - Case Study

    Application A waste incineration plant burns waste. A fi nal product of this incineration process is fi lter dust, which is stored in silos before being evacuated. For the ambient air monitoring of the silos, convey lines and connected rooms, the plant manager looked for a maintenance-free way to detect dust leaks and malfunctions. Optical techniques were not ...
