We work with many industries and pride ourselves in being able to offer solutions for more unique project requirements. Read about some of our Did You Know? special applications below.

Sewage Sludge Incinerator Application NoteIndustrial Processing - Sewage Sludge Incinerator
The solid residues from sewage treatment are destroyed by burning in a boiler. The flue gases are scrubbed of particles, acid gases and, finally, mercury. The preferred method for mercury removal is to pass the gases through a scrubber containing powdered activated carbon (PAC). However PAC oxidizes readily and can catch fire if it becomes overheated.

Industrial Processing Application Note - Municipal Solid Waste IncineratorIndustrial Processing - Municipal Solid Waste Incinerator
Municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal plants incinerate garbage and generate power using a moving-grate boiler. Because of the nature of the fuel, the feed system for the MSW does not always provide an even flow of refuse onto the burner grates, and it is difficult to view burning material for a consistent fuel flow rate.

Liquid Waste Incineration at Hazardous Waste Plants -Application Note EN
Industrial Processing - Liquid Waste Incineration at Hazardous Waste Plants
Hazardous organic chemical wastes are destroyed by high-temperature incineration in a variety of kilns. The high temperature and extended residence time in the kiln ensure full destruction of the material. To meet the regulated disposal requirements, specific temperature and time limits must to maintained to ensure complete destruction of material.

Pickling Tanks For Stainless Steel - Application Note ENIndustrial Processing - Pickling Tanks For Stainless Steel
Nitric acid is used to pickle stainless steel products to remove impurities and form a new surface layer on the material. To demonstrate compliance with environmental regulations, emissions of nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide (collectively referred to as NOx) may be required to be monitored and controlled. 

Product(s): FGA942

Natural Gas Compressor Stations - Application NoteIndustrial Processing - Natural Gas Compressor Stations
As natural gas moves along a pipeline, friction and other effects cause its pressure to drop. Compressor stations are placed at intervals along the pipeline to maintain pressure.The compressors are driven by stationary internal combustion engines which burn some of the natural gas as fuel. Emissions of CO and NOx from the engines are regulated to protect the environment, and so operators must make periodic measurements of the flue gases.

Application Note - Wood Burning BoilersIndustrial Processing - Wood Burning Boilers
Sawmills and other wood processors burn waste wood on-site to generate steam and power for site operations. Emissions of pollutants such as particulate matter, carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen are regulated by local environmental authorities and so periodic or continuous monitoring is needed.

Application Note - Thermal OxidizerIndustrial Processing - Thermal Oxidizer
A thermal oxidizer is a type of air pollution control equipment used to reduce emissions of harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in several industrial processes by oxidizing the chemicals to carbon dioxide and water vapor. Natural gas is usually the fuel source. A direct-fired oxidizer is simple and has low capital cost, but a regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) is more efficient because it uses the heat from a previous oxidization cycle to preheat the next batch of waste gases.
