Combikat - Exhaust Abatement Systems for Stationary Applications
Combikat is designed for gas turbines, diesel and gas engines as well as bio fuels in excess of 200 kW. It finds its application in power stations, incinerators, combined heat and power as well as other combustion processes.There are three main functions: Reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx). Oxidation of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons (CO, HC). Filtration of Soot Particulates (PM).
The filtration system reduces the soot particles to more than 90%. The nitrogen oxides (NOx) can be reduced up to 97% in stationary installations, depending on engine, exhaust back pressure and fuel. It is not necessary to use fuel with low sulfur content. CO and HC are transformed into harmless carbon dioxide and water.
A special particularity of combikat is the construction of the filter housing. It is provided with inlet doors and filter openings in order to be able to carry out service faster and easier and without disassembling.
Thanks to the modular construction of «combikat», it can be combined to incorporate the three stages of exhaust abatement as desired. This enables us to design a bespoke system for each stationary application to the customers needs.
Hardly a day goes by without news about air pollution, evoked through exhaust gases of power stations, incinerators, heating plants as well as other combustion processes.
combikat, is an exhaust gas aftertreatment system developed by Hug Engineering. It has already demonstrated on a global scale that it contributes efficiently to the improvement of air quality.
With the combikat exhaust gas purification system, the following pollutants can be significantly reduced or eliminated:
- nitrogen oxides (NO)
- carbon monoxides (CO)
- hydrocarbons (HC)
- particulates (PM)
combikat exhaust gas purification systems are suitable for:
- diesel and heavy oil engines
- gas engines
- engines powered by renewable fuels
- incinerators from 200 kW to 40 MW.
Design of Combikat:
Thanks to its modular design, the combikat exhaust gas purification system can easily be adapted to the customer’s individual needs.
combikat consists of the following main components:
- converter with SCR/ OXI/ ROM (ammonia killer) catalysts
- converter with particulate filter
- reactant injector (urea or ammonia)
- injection pipe
- reactant dosing system
- exhaust gas monitoring (if required)
- reactant pumping system
Particulate filter and catalysts can be integrated into one converter housing or applied individually.
A reducing agent (aqueous ammonia or aqueous urea solution) is injected into the exhaust gas. The exhaust gases and reducing agent are then converted onto a catalyst, wherein the nitrogen oxides are transformed on the catalytic surface into nitrogen (N2) and water (H2O).
The oxidation catalyst in the converter oxidizes carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide and water vapour. Depending on the SCR-honeycomb volume in the converter, a reduction in excess of 98% can be achieved.
The injection of the reactant is continously controlled by a NOx-Controller, especially developed by Hug Engineering (reactant dosing system). Thanks to the extremly accurate control technology applied, extra-low emission limits can be achieved (closed loop).
Another possibility is to inject the reactant according to the engine load curve (open loop).
If required, a particulate filter can be installed in front of the SCR-stage. In the silicon carbide particulate filter developed by Hug Engineering, the particulates are filtered and eliminated in excess of 99%. Our filters achieve the highest standards and are VERT certified.
