DRY GAS SCRUBBER / CHEMICAL / HIGH-EFFICIENCY XEROSORP

Characteristics

  • Type:

    dry

  • Type of gas:

    chemical

  • Other characteristics:

    high-efficiency

Description

Dry scrubbing for efficiency and small amounts of residues

The Xerosorp process removes acidic gases by adsorption with sodium bicarbonate. Due to the very high reactivity of sodium bicarbonate, only little overdosing is required which minimizes reagent consumption and residue generation. In addition, activated carbon or coke can be injected for removal of volatile organics and metals. The process is nearly independent of temperature and thus allows optimizing the total process to maximize energy recovery

Key advantages of the XEROSORP process:

Low emissions with a high flexibility relative to changes of load or flue gas contaminant concentrations
Minimized sorbent use and residue generation
High availability and low O&M cost due to simple design and operation
