B&W’s electrostatic precipitator technologies deliver maximum particulate removal efficiency with proven reliability and reduced operating and maintenance costs. And our engineered upgrades, quality components and replacement parts, and aftermarket services help keep existing ESPs running efficiently and effectively, regardless of OEM.
We have extensive experience with both dry and wet technologies, and have installations in a wide range of applications, including power generation, waste-to-energy, cement, chemical, oil & gas, pulp & paper, metals/steel, and others.
Regardless of the application, B&W’s latest dry ESP design provides many advantages, including:
B&W MEGTEC’s experience in industrial emissions control is among the longest and broadest in the industry. Our particulate control experience originated with one of the first commercial applications of industrial ESPs in the United States in 1907.
For industrial installations, the wet ESP provided by B&W MEGTEC offers highly efficient control of submicron particulate, heavy metals, acid mists and condensed metal fumes and organics. Our experience includes more than 150 installations in the wood products and pelletizing industries, regenerative and metallurgical sulfuric acid plants, petroleum refineries and petrochemical plants.
For utility and power generation applications, there has been renewed interest in the use of wet ESPs to control selected emissions, especially sulfuric acid mist (H2SO4) and fine particulates. Features and benefits of B&W’s wet ESP system includes:
B&W's AVC Evolution Continues
B&W’s SQ-300®i Hybrid automatic voltage control (AVC) is the newest addition to our proven SQ-300 product line. Based on the same trusted technology, the SQ-300i Hybrid AVC has the ability to control either a conventional, single-phase transformer rectifier (T/R) set or a low ripple, 3-phase T/R set.
As an integral component of the precipitator control system, the SQ-300i simultaneously controls power to the T/R set, analyzes alarms, and interfaces with computer-based data acquisition software. The ability to control two different types of power supplies adds a unique dimension to the product line.
