Maintaining clean air is one of today’s most pressing environmental issues. Legislation is becoming ever more stringent and the public is increasingly aware of industry transgressions. It is essential that all companies with the potential to pollute operate and maintain efficient, reliable and effective clean air systems.
Jord has a range of particulate removal and wet scrubbing technology.
FGD systems remove sulphur dioxide from the flue gas of boilers burning high sulphur fuels. Conventional FGD systems often require an expensive reagent, high grade lime or limestone and generate solid wastes that must be transported to landfill. Jord’s FGD systems utilize a wide range of less expensive reagents that can produce a saleable product, gypsum.
The image below shows an FGD system Jord supplied as a turnkey project to a cement plant in Indonesia. It is design to remove 5,000 tonnes p.a. of SO2 at a removal efficiency of 97.5% from flue gas generated from their 55 MWe coal fired boiler. Jord’s plant creates 12,000 tonnes p.a. of gypsum which is used as an additive in the manufacture of cement.
WESP’s are suitable for applications with low particulate concentrations that require very low outlet emissions. With the right design they can be used on combustible gases.
The image below shows one of two WESP’s Jord supplied to China’s Iron and Steel industry. These units remove trace amounts of particulate from a mixture of Blast Furnace Gas, Linz Donawitz Converter Gas and Coke Oven Gas. The resultant gas thereby passes emission regulations and is clean enough for use to run 2 x 120MWe Gas Turbines in an adjacent co-generation plant.
Detarrer’s are suitable for applications that produce gases with aerosols of sticky tar droplets. Correctly sized they can achieve very low outlet emissions.
The image below shows one of two Detarrer’s Jord supplied to an Iron and Steel plant in China. These units remove trace amounts of tar droplets from Coke Oven Gas so that it can be mixed with other combustible waste gas to run 2 x 120MWe Gas Turbines.
