Mobile Pilot Testing for
Fine Particle Collection
Fine particle collection applications that are well-suited for CCS treatment include:
power and heat production using coal combustion, diesel exhaust treatment, chemically
generated particles, incinerators, powder oversprays, pulp and papermaking,
sulfuric acid processing, nitric acid plants, petrochemical refining, calcinators,
smelters, metals processing lines, aluminum refining operations, dryers,
rotary kilns, fiber optics operations, ceramics, and glass melting furnaces.
Existing Cloud Chamber installations cover a range of air flow volumes and
targeted pollutants. The CCS has an operating history of more than eight years,
during which time they have demonstrated exceptional effectiveness, high uptime
rates, and low maintenance. Successful new applications are continuously
added to the list.
Tri-Mer’s Mobile Pilot Unit is
transported to the site and is
operational within a few hours.
It requires an extension cord
power connection and garden
hose water connection.
The Mobile Pilot Unit is
recording and a portable
lab for testing.
What about new or unusual applications? Tri-Mer has performed pilot tests at over
20 customer locations. These tests are for confidential customer evaluation but are
often observed by national and local regulatory authorities.
The pilot program was developed to facilitate hands-on empirical testing of CCS technology
on actual process exhaust gas streams. Because of the complex nature of many process
exhaust gas streams particularly diesel exhaust, and the limitations of accurate characterization,
pilot testing is an essential part of the design process for new applications and must be
performed prior to commissioning the design and construction of a full-size CCS unit.
Pilot units simulate full-scale commercial modules, and data gathered during the piloting
is used for full system design and operation.
The CCS pilot plant is capable of treating exhaust gas flows, including difficult diesel exhaust,
from 850 to 3,400 Nm3/hr (500 to 2000 acfm) and consists of a three stages: PCC, CGV #1,
and CGV #2. Commercial and industrial CCS systems handle up to 300,000 acfm.
The pilot is fully instrumented and automated to log all important process parameters.
As an integral part of its structure, a pilot unit is encased in a steel support grid-frame
assembly for ease of shipping and erection on site of the modular components.
The pilot has a small footprint for ease of locating and easily interfaces with the facility water,
electricity, and exhaust gas stream. Independent testing is generally an important
aspect of the programs that are jointly developed between the customer and Tri-Mer.
Pilot testing can be accomplished in remarkably short timeframes.
