PPT Invests in Spray Dryer and Emissions Control Capability
Responding to demand from various industries for processing materials that emit nitrogen oxide (NOx), Powder Processing & Technology, LLC has reportedly added advanced emission control capability to support its growing client base. The Tri-Mer emissions control unit, based on catalytic ceramic filters, is reportedly a state-of-the-art technology for processes that emit NOx. The unit has been fully commissioned and has demonstrated the ability to handle NOx emissions in the range of 2-50 lbs per hour with NOx destruction efficiency adjustable up to 95%. The Tri-Mer unit also captures particulate (e.g., PM10, PM2.5, and submicron PM) to over 99% efficiency.
The Tri-Mer unit is currently installed on one of PPT’s 1-m diameter rotary calciners, with plans to add further processing equipment in the future to provide more capacity. The Tri-Mer technology, which is in operation on large kilns and furnaces across the U.S and Europe, is fully scalable for industrial applications.
PPT is also a full-service spray dry toller. PPT has reportedly increased the number of spray dryers available to a total of six units over the past year, adding a full range of atomization capabilities to accommodate increased customer requirements. PPT has the capability in its Innovative Materials Center to develop spray drying process technology on a pilot scale for the development of new materials.
