There are many different ways to reduce the emissions of exhaust gases in a power generation system, but many of them rely on introducing additives that help neutralize the emissions at the point of the exit stack. Before that can happen, highly efficient mixing and contact of the additive to the exit gases is an absolute must. In most cases, you can only have a very small pressure drop during the entire process. Our NOx scrubber does just that.
Coal Based Plants
Coal fired power generation plants are located across the U.S., and many of them use this technology to help neutralize emissions in the exhaust gases. Stacks tend to be about 100 meters tall and 4 meters across in these plants. Ammonia must be introduces to the stack to neutralize those emissions, so good mixing and rapid additive contact is absolute essential across the full width of the stack. With our design, that happens without question. Our design also improves the uniformity of gas temperature and flow distribution across the stack, which is vital to a higher efficiency and consistent performance.
Emissions are going to continue to be of great concern in the power generation industry, and Komax is always working to provide the right equipment to help our industries served become more environmentally friendly.
