CataMax catalytic solution
  • Overview

An advance in technology

The heart of the solution is constructed like a traditional bag filter, except that both dust and harmful gases are removed from the flue gas in a single step by porous ceramic elements. Dust is removed by pulsed, pressurised air and the harmful gases are trapped and removed in the matrix of the ceramics via a specially designed catalyst that converts and removes THC and NOx emissions.

The CataMax catalytic solution does not replace a plant's main filter, but it is an add-on that FLSmidth installs, for example during a regular maintenance shutdown.
