USA: NOx Reduction Ceco Sees Growing Market for Ammonia Injection Grids
Ceco, a provider of air quality and fluid handling technology, announced that the their engineered energy equipment Peerless brand has recently completed a number of SCR system retrofit upgrades as well as new SCR Exhaust Systems utilizing its patented Edge AIG technology.
Dallas/USA — With a growing number of natural gas-fired combined cycle plants in need of retrofits and upgrades, or new SCR systems, the company is seeing a growing demand for its Edge AIG technology, which stands for ammonia injection grids.
One project, awarded in early 2018, was delivered, installed and completed in four months, involved two new ammonia injection grids for Central Louisiana Energy Corporation (Cleco). According to Jonathon Miller, Maintenance Manager, Cleco, Peerless handled the removal of all of the lances per unit, fabrication and a seamless installation without a safety infraction or incident.
The supplier claims that their technology improvements would help the customer reduce NOx by more than 90 %.
The contract included custom engineering, analysis, and design of the patented technology, for the gas-fired power plant and will provide significant reduction in ammonia usage, in some cases upwards of 20 %, the company claims. Further benefits include the reduction of NOx and VOC levels in turbine exhaust gases to helo protect air quality as well as an improvement of ammonia distribution throughout, resulting in reduced slip and extended SCR catalyst life.
