Glass Furnace Emissions
Tri-Mer All-in-One Catalyst Filter System Compared to ESP plus SCR Combinations

In recent years, the majority of U.S. facilities seeking control of glass furnace emissions have chosen Tri-Mer Ceramic Catalyst Filter Systems. The reasons have been 1) initial cost; 2) operating cost and maintenance, and 3) performance.

High Temperature Filter System

Worldwide, there are approximately 12 ceramic filter systems operational or under construction that use ceramic filter technology. These systems are operating in flat glass, container glass, and tableware. In the United States, Tri-Mer Ceramic Catalyst Filter Systems readily meet EPA and state requirements for particulate (PM), SO2, HCl, metals, and NOx.

 


Other advantages of the Tri-Mer technology include:

  • NOx removal is a small fraction of the “cost in $/ton of glass” of converting to oxy-fired.

  • Tri-Mer's integrated glass furnace emissions system is less costly than ESP ducted to a stand-alone SCR. Ceramic Catalyst Filter projects have been awarded primarily on initial price and operating cost, with superior performance an important added benefit.

  • Ceramic Catalyst Filter Systems require much less sorbent than ESP to achieve equivalent SO2 removal efficiency.

  • Ceramic Catalyst Filter lower total energy consumption than ESP + SCR.

  • Total “cost of ownership” is lower, even with filter replacement at the 5-year minimum. The Tri-Mer system is less complicated, and requires less maintenance, than ESP + SCR.

  • Systems are “future-proof” with significantly higher PM capture (including metals).

  • When DSI (dry sorbent injection) is used for acid gases, Ceramic Catalyst Filter Systems have higher SO2 capture potential than ESP.

  • Ceramic Catalyst Filter Systems have longer catalyst life because the catalyst is protected within the ceramic filter media.

  • The Ceramic Catalyst Filter is all-in-one: PM+SO2+metals+NOx, and requires less total footprint.
