Odour and Particulate Abatement System (OAS 50-600) is based on the use of non-thermal plasma technology treating the entire emission in an intensive plasma field abating odours of industrial emissions efficiently. The system has the following main properties:*
Removes odour and particulates from emissions
- Cleaning efficiency: 75-95%
- Modular Capacity: 20 000 m³/h
- Power Consumption: 10 - 20 kW pr. module – maximum 30 kW
- Small equipment "footprint" and low weight
- Low pressure-drop (approx. 40 – 180 pa)
- Can be installed on both suction side and pressure side
- No consumables in operation
- No effluent release
- Simple on/off operation
- Very low maintenance and operation cost
- Remote control and monitoring via modem/Internet
The APP Odour and Particulate Abatement system has been installed on emission volumes ranging from 10 000 m³/h up to 2.000.000 m³/h, but the modular concept will of course allow for even larger volumes if required. APP also provides daily / weekly remote monitoring of the system performance if that is required by our customers.
Cleansing principles and emissions to the atmosphere:
The general cleansing principles used in the APP non-thermal plasma technology, are to accelerate the natural destruction of the chemical composition in the process emission. Hence, there are no by-products created from the cold plasma process. The reaction chambers also function as compact electrostatic precipitators, removing dust and particulates. Due to the low energy level in the reaction zone, the APP system is not able to "produce" any harmful by-products.
An oxidation process takes place in the plasma reactor, and causes the odour reduction to happen. Radicals generated inside the reactor initiate this process. Most of these radicals are all short lived and will be consumed before emitted out of the unit. Some O³-radicals (ozone) may however be emitted out of the unit and will contribute to a post-reaction in the ducting leading the emission to the exit point. During commissioning, O³ emission will be verified to be well below existing standards.
