|Technology Update (Both Case Studies #6 & #7)|
The Tri-Mer UltraCat ceramic filter system is now the technology of choice for this application. It supersedes the Cloud Chamber Scrubber in performance and at a lower cost. The application is large stationary diesel such as generators, ships-at-port and other large sources. It is not applicable to automotive or truck diesel. Tri-Mer has diesel results for PM, SO2, and NOx all removed by an all-in-one UltraCat catalyst filter system.
|Technology Update (Case Study #1)|
The Tri-Mer UltraCat ceramic filter system is now the technology of choice for this application. It supersedes the Cloud Chamber Scrubber in performance and at a lower cost. Tri-Mer now has six projects on glass furnace emissions in the U.S. that cover the range of glass and furnace types. The latest system controls glass furnace emissions for PM, SOx, and NOx using the UltraCat catalyst filter system. Tri-Mer ceramic filter systems have become the industry choice for float, container, and glassware projects, and both air-fuel and oxy-fired furnaces.
Following other successful applications in the glass industry, a pilot study to evaluate the
performance of a Cloud Chamber Scrubber (CCS) system was performed at a major glass
company. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the ability to treat emissions from the
exhaust of a glass melting furnace for particulates and SO2. The test was deemed successful,
and Tri-Mer received an order from the major glass company based in part on the pilot study,
which showed the ability to meet requirements set by state and federal regulatory authorities.
A third-party testing company was contracted by the glass company to source test
the inlet and outlet of the CCS for particulates using EPA Method 5/202.
Graphic 1. Performance results on container flat / glass manufacturing showing over 95% capture of
total particulate, both filterable and condensable. These were conducted by Tri-Mer using a modified
Method 5 to account for “drift water,” an artifact of the equipment set-up.
For removal efficiency tests, third party testers employed continuous emission monitors (CEM)
for SO2. A variety of applications verify that typical SO2 removal in the CCS is in excess of 99%
as shown in graphic 2 above. As an enhancement, a method for minimizing or recycling treatment
of the waste stream for soda glass was proposed by Tri-Mer. This is called the Zero Discharge
feature of the CCS system for glass applications.
Wet scrubbing of soluble gases is well understood. Tri-Mer Corporation, as a leader in wet scrubbing,
has thousands of scrubbers of different types installed in many industries. By using charged droplets,
CCS can remove fine particulate that other wet scrubbers cannot, while retaining the gas scrubbing
ability of a packed tower scrubber.
