Process measurement at flue gas scrubber inlets
Flue gas scrubbers reduce HCl and SO2. Wet scrubbers spray a cleaning solution into the scrubbing tower, counter-current to the gas. In the case of the dry scrubbing process, lime powder or milk of lime is used. In order to then remove any heavy metals and organic pollutants, activated carbon is added during dry absorption. The MCS300P HW simultaneously measures the SO2, HCl, H2O, and optionally the O2 components. These measurements can help to significantly reduce the consumption of reagents, thereby lowering operating costs. Peaks in concentration can also be quickly and reliably recorded.
