Applications and Air Pollutants Removed in the Agricultural Industry
Particulate and gaseous control on Bagasse and Biomass fueled boilers. Sugar scrubbing and recovery. Removal of sulfur dioxide and ethylene oxide from fruit and vegetable ripening and drying rooms.
The Bionomic recommended products for these applications:
- Series 5000 Packed Bed Scrubbers – Suited for removal of all acid gases when using either sodium, potassium or ammonium based chemistries or subcooling flue gas stream. The series 9500 Spray Tower or RotaBed® designs should be employed when using calcium (hydrated lime and limestone) or magnesium hydroxide scrubbing reagents due to low plugging and scale buildup resistance of these designs. Bionomic offers a special designed system for ethylene oxide scrubbing utilizing sulfuric or phosphoric acid to generate ethylene glycol by-product.
- Series 7000 Venturi Scrubber - To control particulate emissions in the sub-micron and single digit micron size range and meet MACT standards. Full gas turndown capability. Applicable for all bagasse and biomass fired boilers. Also removes with high efficiency sulfur dioxide and hydrochloric acid when using chemical scrubbing reagents. Both horizontal and vertical separator designs enable additional acid gas removal or subcooling of flue gas for plume suppression.
- RotaBed® - Our patented plug free fluidized bed device is the preferred technology when scrubbing acid gases using magnesium or calcium based chemistries when a low gas turndown ratio is normal for the application. Able to handle slurries with no buildup or fouling and for gypsum production. Available with integral air sparging sump sections for oxidation and conversion of calcium sulfite to gypsum quality calcium sulfate.
- ScrubPac™ Custom Skid Mounted Scrubber System - When a fully engineered package scrubber system solution is required for any scrubber type and emission. Reduces engineering and installation time and costs. Pumps, instrumentation, controls, valves and other accessories can be supplied in customer approved standardized brands.
