Wet FGD Systems Upgrades – Absorber Gas-Liquid Contact Devices

Wet FGD absorber tray

SO2 removal in a wet scrubber is controlled by how much SO2 can be absorbed per unit volume of recirculated slurry. This is referred to as absorption.

SO2 absorption is partly a function of the physical design of the absorber, which sets the gas-slurry contact area. Improving the contact between the gas and slurry, therefore, can help increase SO2 removal, as well as provide ancillary benefits. Read about two such proven methods in this article.

Efficiency Improvements in your Boiler

Construction Project Controls Primer

Continuous Learning
Controlling all phases of a construction project is vital for safe and successful project execution.

Read about the three primary goals of utilizing construction project controls and the two steps of the basic control process in this primer. Analysis of lessons learned (both positive and negative) are documented and prove useful for future performance improvements.

A Numerical Modeling Example - Kraft Recovery Boilers

A Numerical Modeling Example – Kraft Recovery Boilers

Results from computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling can be used in a wide range of applications.

This article shows how recovery boiler operational factors such as liquor spray distribution, air jet penetration, gas velocity and furnace temperature can be modeled to determine potential upgrades for optimal boiler performance.
