Air pollution control services help reduce emissions and save energy
Supporting effective air pollution control solutions
If your air pollution control equipment fails, you face shutdowns and loss of production. And, in addition, increased emissions due to poorly designed equipment not only impacts the environment, but can also cause extensive wear on other equipment, such as filter fans, which increases overall maintenance and operational costs.
With our high degree of process knowledge and experience, FLSmidth is at the forefront of developing new technologies to optimise air pollution control equipment and solutions. We also understand the increasing legislative pressure to reduce emissions.
Make an informed choice: refurbish, convert or replace?
Meeting requirements for emissions and saving energy are crucial, but how can you do this efficiently while maximising uptime? We help you to find the best option for your plant, giving you specific recommendations on optimisation and maintenance to achieve more effective air pollution control and meet environmental regulations. For example, you can refurbish equipment back to its original condition and capacity, or install modern components in existing equipment to improve performance and reliability. You could choose to convert existing equipment or replace it with a new unit – building alongside the existing one to avoid downtime.
Prevent problems before they occur: inspections
Avoid unforeseen shutdowns: our diagnostic and reporting services optimise preventative maintenance.
We diagnose equipment in three main areas: process, electrical and mechanical. Our air pollution control specialists provide an in-depth evaluation (system audit), which focuses on increasing availability and efficiency, minimising energy consumption, and meeting specific emission requirements.
Elevate your solution to the next level
Are you struggling to meet targets with your current equipment, but the cost of installing a completely new solution is prohibitively high?
We’ll design an upgrade solution based on your current equipment and requirements, and we’ll advise you how to optimise your pollution control processes. We also offer a wide range of conversion solutions to fit your plant type and conditions.
For example, one cost-effective solution is to convert your existing electrostatic precipitator (ESP) equipment to fabric filter or hybrid filter technology. With the right fabric filter solution, the cost of conversion can often be minimised through reusing elements of the ESP, such as the casing, steel support and dust transport system.
Upgrade and conversion services help you:
- Improve the performance of your existing filter solution
- Increase production capacity
- Maximise the use of existing filter equipment
- Minimise investment costs
Repair and replace all types of equipment
If you have a system that has been in place for more than 30 years, you don’t need to worry about repairs because we support and supply parts for all types and makes of equipment - including older systems.
When you need to replace filter bags or cages, we help you choose the right materials, including for proprietary bags and cage manufacturing, and you can rely on us for supervision or full installation services for repairs.
You can choose from a full range of spare parts for your air pollution control systems throughout the equipment lifetime, and we can install parts quickly, ensuring a proper fit the first time, helping to keep the total cost of ownership low.
The FLSmidth night crew was amazing. They were efficient, safe and professional in the way they did the job. Out of four crews from two different companies that I’ve worked with, they are the best. Thank you for helping us with our bag change out, you made the experience easy.
Smart fabric filter technology
The combination of optimised design, improved mechanical construction, and advanced filter control results in reduced and easier maintenance, compared to other types of fabric filters on the market. The SmartBag coupled with the SmartPulse Controller EVO II meets the needs of modern-day cement mills.
