Meets Boiler MACT Compliance For Glass Furnace Requirements

Tri-Mer's Ceramic Catalyst Filter Systems are composed of fibrous ceramic materials mixed with nanobits of proprietary catalyst. This new generation of light weight, ductile ceramic filter is very efficient in removing NOx and capturing particulate, including submicron PM, to extremely low levels.

Particulate Control

Catalytic ceramic filters typically capture particulate to levels less than 0.001 grains/dscf (2.0 mg/Nm3). For Boiler MACT compliance, levels of less than 0.0011 lbs/MMBtu are guaranteed. The unique structure of the filters keeps the collected particles on the surface. On-line cleaning with reverse pulses of air is effective, pressure drop build up is minimal, and the embedded NOx catalyst is protected.

NOx and Dioxin Control

Catalytic ceramic filter tubes have nanobits of proprietary catalyst embedded throughout the filter walls, which are about 3/4” thick. The UltaCat can achieve excellent NOx removal at temperatures of 350°F and higher. Operating range is approximately 350°F to 700°F. Urea ammonia is injected upstream of the filters, reacting with NOx at the catalyst to form harmless nitrogen gas and water vapor, which then exits the system as gases. The proprietary catalyst is highly resistant to sulfur poisoning and is protected from particulate contamination because it is embedded inside the filter walls. Typical NOx results are up to 95% removal. The Ceramic Catalyst Filter System is also very efficient at destroying dioxins, typically at 97-99%.

CO in the Boiler MACT

The proposed Boiler MACT regulates production of CO. If CO is managed by combustion conditions, then NOx production
increases. The best strategy for Boiler MACT compliance is to control the CO in the boiler and allow the Ceramic Catalyst Filter Systems to remove NOx in the flue gas.
