Rising fuel and electric costs, along with global warming concerns have changed the way industrial facilities view energy consumption. Process equipment and air pollution control systems that were installed several years ago may not reflect the energy conscious designs available today, analyzing these systems to determine energy reduction opportunities can be a very valuable practice. Recovering waste heat is one of the easiest and most utilized means of reducing energy demands at industrial facilities.
Dürr MEGTEC’s industry-leading experience in air handling, drying, heating, cooling, process and combustion control can help improve the operating efficiency of your facility and maximize the performance of your equipment. By analyzing current process energy usage, we can offer solutions to reduce your energy consumption.
Combustion efficiency is of major importance on small boiler plants and the best way to monitor this is by monitoring CO2 emissions. CODEL offer the Model 1010 Cross-Duct CO monitor. Using Infra-red Gas Filter Correlation technology to filter out interferences such as dust and other gases. The Model 1010 has low maintenance requirements and meets the needs of most boiler applications. In addition to small boilers the Model 1010 is also used on Animal carcass incinerators and Crematoriums.
For particulate matter (PM) emission control in high temperature exhaust streams, such as those from biomass or coal boilers and heaters, common dedusters such as cyclones and multicyclones are not able to comply with current emission limits. This is mainly due to their low efficiency, particularly for small particles (less than 10µm). In order to meet emission limits this usually requires an additional investment in a final stage deduster. Bag filters (BF) are very efficient dedusters. They can also be...
Application: Syngas (short for synthetic gas) can be burnt and used as a fuel source, the main constituents of syngas are Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen, which amount for around 85% of Syngas, and it is produced by a process called Gasification.
For many years, sugar mills have burned bagasse, the fibrous byproduct of the processing of sugarcane, using special boilers that produce the steam needed to help break down the sugar cane.
As the cost of powering this equipment by burning fossil fuels has steadily risen, the use of biofuel cogeneration as a source of power production has become more prevalent. Many sugar mills have updated their bagasse-fired boilers and linked them to generators that produce electricity used to power the mill’s operations...
Syngas (short for synthetic gas) can be burnt and used as a fuel source, the main constituents of syngas are Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen (H), which amount for around 85% of Syngas, and it is produced by a process called Gasification.
Gasification starts with a base material which can originate from a wide variety of materials for example wood chips and pellets, plastics, municipal solid waste, sewage, waste crops, and fossil fuels such as coal. During Gasification the base material is reacted at high...
The use of alternative combustion fuels that provide a renewable source of energy is a major area of research and investment. Sources of biomass fuels include virgin wood, energy crops, agricultural residues, food waste and industrial waste. Controlling the combustion process of any new fuel and keeping track of the biomass fuel emissions of combustion by-products is important to users of these new fuels.
Biomass produces a cleaner, renewable energy, reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions, all while creating lower operating costs for power plants.
Biomass, the by-product of pulp and paper, agriculture, and municipal sludge, is perhaps the oldest source of renewable energy on Earth. Biomass' use in energy production is currently growing worldwide at an exponential rate.
Processes that create a synthetic gas (syn gas) in a gasification process for waste reduction, electricity generation, or steam production (CHP – combined heat and power processes) – commonly benefit from custom heat recovery systems.

Power Generation Combustion Air Measurements: The need for accurate, repeatable & reliable combustion air measurements in power generation plants is critical to efficient operation and safety throughout the entire facility and processes. Coal-fired power plant applications pose a number of challenges to obtaining these critical flow measurements includ¬ing large ducts, limited metering runs, poor velocity and temperature profiles, high vibration, temperatures up to 750° F and dirty `Fly Ash` laden air.
Procal supply analysers to monitor many different applications from small combustion plants to large power stations. Examples include University Boiler Plants, Carbon Black Plants, Thermal Oxidisers and Community Heating Projects.
Biomass energy from gasification, when done responsibly with waste wood or suitable agricultural waste such as nut shells, is often eligible for feed-in tariffs. However, biomass gasification has the advantage of being on-demand, so you can feed renewable energy onto the grid at times when wind and solar are not abundant, enabling you to avoid times when prices are too low due to an excess of wind or solar power being fed to the grid.
Cocoa processing plants are often located in remote areas with little or no access to fossil fuels. The cocoa shells represent up to 10 % of the processing capacity of a typical plant, and often have no market value. VYNCKE offers combustion systems to convert the cocoa shells into a reliable supply of steam for the sterilization, roasting and grinding process. Our systems effectively address the challenges of cocoa shells as a boiler fuel, and even allow co-generation (combined heat and power supply).
Combustion processes occur in many modern technologies such as power production, heating, automotive and aircraft engines and even explosion research.
The application areas range from fuel injection and mixing and flow velocity information to measurements of combustion species and soot concentration.
Because of the impact on the global climate and the limited resources of fossil fuels, the importance of these applications is increasing, especially with respect to performance, fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
