FDL win two projects at Lochaber Smelter to clean up emissions from two aluminium holding furnaces and two 'Junkers' steel furnaces.
New legislation enforced by SEPA in June 2020 requires that processes hitherto exempt may require gas clean up.
Particulate emissions will drop by 99.9% meaning that the air in Fort William is even cleaner for all of those enjoying outdoor pursuits in and around Ben Nevis.
We were contracted to provide 2 small Ceramic filters suitable for a small volume but with a design maximum temperature of 600°C. In addition the filters will be handling a syngas which cannot be mixed with oxygen so an alternative to compressed air would need to be used for the ‘Cleanpulse’ cleaning of the 25 Ceramic element in each of these CPC78 filters. In addition dosing of small amounts of a re-agent is required so the client also opted for a ‘Cleandose’ 25kg bag skid. Find out more about Project CAD below.
