Air Pollution Control
Integrated Air Pollution Solutions
Air pollution has slow-moving but dangerous effects on both people and the environment. True to our name, AirClean is committed to protecting and preserving our natural environment. In addition, emission levels in many jurisdictions must meet strict regulatory requirements. AirClean is prepared to help you find the right solution for your air pollution control system. Air pollution control systems should be designed and engineered specifically for the system and the emissions involved. Emissions are site specific and highly dependent upon the fuel being burned and the combustion system used, so please contact us to discuss your project.
Performance Guarantee and Emissions Guarantee
AirClean Energy offers comprehensive knowledge and capabilities in developing integrated air pollution control systems for new installations and existing systems. Your project is supported by engineers who are experts in industrial air pollution control applications, from concept to completion. We are fully qualified to provide both the performance guarantee and emissions guarantee, so you can be assured your system remains compliant and productive.
- Electrostatic Precipitators
- Thermal Oxidizers
- Wet Scrubbers
These dust collectors are ideal when you need to remove dry particles from an airstream. The dirty air enters the side of the baghouse and the dust is filtered out by bag filters or pleated cartridge filters. The material and style of the filter depend on the dust being collected. Baghouses are supplied with pulse jets, which periodically release a blast of compressed air in the reverse direction through the filters to knock dust off the filters and improve filter life.
Electrostatic Precipitators (or ESP’s) are able to collect very small particles from an airstream very efficiently. They do this by inducing an electrostatic charge on the particles in the air and then using a series of alternately charges plates to capture the charged particles. Using this strategy, ESPs can remove smoke and find vapors from an airstream.
Certain hazardous pollutants and volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) can be eliminated from an airstream by heating it to destroy or combust the particles. This prevents the unwanted compounds from escaping the facility and, ideally, the heat from combustion can be used in another process or for power generation.
Wet scrubbers use liquid droplets to capture relatively smaller particulate entrained in the airstream. The droplets are introduced into the dirty airstream by nozlzes/lances placed to maximize the particle collection. The moisture containing the particulate is separated from the airstream by a mist eliminator, leaving only clean air.
Cyclones are ideal for separating coarse particles greater than 1 µm from an airstream. They operate passively by slowing and turning the air as it enters the cyclone. Very large particles drop out of the flow in the slow moving air in the center of the cyclone. Smaller particles are removed as their inertia forces them to collide with the outer surface of the cyclone, which causes them to drop out of the airflow. The dust can be collected directly into a drum or into a screw conveyor while the clean air exits the top of the cyclone.
