Flue Gas Conditioning as Alternative to a Bag Filter Upgrade
I commonly hear from coal-fired power plant operators that they plan to install bag filters if the emission values exceed the legal limit. I propose an alternative approach: First, try to use the full power of the existing electrostatic precipitators by conditioning the fly ash resistivity. Have Pentol first check whether flue gas conditioning will work for you and compare Capex and Opex cost of both alternatives. Advantages of Flue Gas Conditioning are increased gypsum whiteness and elimination of the back corona effect resulting in a big reduction of dust emission.
Pentol Flue Gas Conditioning is a containerized, modular solution. We currently offer used equipment for testing. Plants with a short residual operating time can consider renting a FGC system for the time left.
