Custom-designed atomizing technologies and air pollution control solutions

Evaporative Gas Cooling Systems

B&W MEGTEC Evaporative Gas Cooling
A proven design that has been used in hundreds of installations. 
Our evaporative gas cooling and conditioning system helps to protect downstream equipment, enhance air pollution control performance, reduce gas volumes and increase production capacity.

Spray Dryer Absorber (SDA)

SDA Spray Dryer Absorber
Our SDAs provide effective control of SOx and HCl by the injection of calcium, potassium or sodium-based slurries.

Our proven SDA systems have been optimized to reduce long-term power and lime consumption, while plant owners benefit from lower operation and maintenance costs.

Wet Electrostatic Precipitators (ESP)

Wet Electrostatic Precipitators
Our electrostatic precipitator technologies deliver maximum particulate removal efficiency with proven reliability and reduced operating and maintenance costs.

The wet ESP offers highly efficient control of submicron particulate, heavy metals, acid mists, and condensed metal fumes and organics.

Heros Water-tube Boilers

Water-Tube Package Boiler
B&W is a leading supplier of Heros water-tube FM and Heros high capacity FM package boilers for start-up and auxiliary power. Units are shop-assembled or modularized with bottom-supported designs for oil, natural gas and other gaseous and liquid fuels. Capacities usually range from 10,000 lb/h (1.3 kg/s) to 600,000 lb/h (25.2 kg/s), depending on type and design features.    

Conveyance Systems

B&W Loibl Plate Conveyor
Compact, space saving solutions suitable for rough conditions
B&W Loibl's conveyance systems can be ordered in various shapes, designs or materials depending on need and conveyor arrangement. These environmentally friendly systems reduce emissions and are engineered for high operational safety.

Metals & Mining

B&W MEGTEC provides custom-designed atomizing technologies and air pollution control solutions for the non-ferrous metallurgical industry, including aluminum, copper, nickel, zinc, and precious metals producers.

Our evaporative gas cooling and conditioning system controls high-temperature furnace and converter off-gases, lowering them to temperatures below other spray technologies without wetting problems.

By lowering the temperature and conditioning the gas stream, the system protects downstream equipment from damage and improves the efficiency of downstream air pollution control equipment, such as baghouses and electrostatic precipitators.

• Horizontal and vertical coolers
• Waffle hoods
• Cu and Ni converter off-gas cooling
• Roaster off-gas cooling
• Aluminum anode bake furnace off-gas cooling

To reduce emissions from furnace and converter off-gases, we offer:
• SO2 control using the B&W MEGTEC spray dryer absorber
Wet electrostatic precipitators for collecting fine particulate and sulfuric acid mists from SO2-rich gas streams
