Pollution Control Systems

Our range is designed in a way that all exhaust gas has to pass through a secondary burner for complete re-burn of harmful gas components. Exhaust gases are then retained at a high temperature (850 - 1200 C, depending on the application) before releasing to atmosphere.

Basic Pollution Control

Dioxins, furans and similar gaseous components are only destroyed by :

  • Homogenous high temperature (> 850°C)
  • Excess of oxygen (>6 %)
  • Sufficient residence time at high temperatures

Our incinerators are designed to ensure all 3 conditions are met.

The three conditions above prevent dioxins from “cracking” into smaller but reactive dioxins, which can reform into new dioxin molecules, especially in the presence of heavy metals which can act as catalysts. (Reformation and "de novo" formation).

In some cases and in certain countries this will not be enough to satisfy local regulations, so additional gas cleaning equipment is requried.

Large Scale Polution Control Systems
Inciner8 Pollution Control System

This pollution control system captures all the gases, soot and entrained solids emitted by the incinerator and process them to meet the European regulations, which are set out in directive 2000/76/EC, dated 4th Dec 2000. Suitable for most Industrial processes.

System features:

  • Remove particulates by direct capture in the ceramic filter
  • Custom designed separator system for specific waste streams
  • Remove acid gases by reaction with hydrated lime and capture of the resulting solid
  • Avoid 'de novo' dioxin formation by removing necessary reactants before the gases cool to the temperature window where formation occurs
  • Remove condensed heavy metals as particulates in the filter

For smaller less demanding gas cleaning applications a Venturi Scrubber would suffice.
