Optimize ESP Performance with Flue Gas Conditioning
Without the need for space, of course. And without changing the ductwork of your plant. And at a fraction of the cost.
Pentol Flue Gas Conditioning reduces solid emission…
- by increasing the efficiency of your ESP
- by reducing the fly ash resistivity
- by injecting SO3 into the flue gas stream.
On the following pages, we would like to show how this works.
Modify fly ash resistivity to let the ESP run on its design point
There are 2 reasons why back corona is no longer an issue with flue gas conditioning:
1. The resistivity of the ash is so low, that the electrical current flowing through the deposits is no longer an issue.
2. Because the deposits are no longer baked to the plates by the electrical current, the deposits are easily removed while rapping the plates.
Not only is back corona completely eliminated, this also means that the lifetime of the precipitator plates and electrodes is extended.
Increased whiteness of gypsum
Now the SO3 is available for reaction in the flue gas duct. No SO3 is stored in any place and the correct quantity is produced automatically by the system.
Ash particles with lower resistivity have a higher migration velocity and are collected on the dust collector plates. The dust layer adhering to the collector plate is not working as an insulator anymore, allowing the current of the ESP to work in the electric field instead of heating up the dust layer on the plate.
The obvious effect is a very high efficiency of the ESP and easy removal of the dust from the plates. In fact, after a few days of operation, the ESP will be cleaned by the SO3 and after rapping the bare metal is visible. Cycles between rapping of the plates can be extended for lower emissions and reduced stress of the ESP.
