SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION OF NOX

Selective catalytic reduction of NOx is a NOx emission control technology that is used in most industrial applications. It allows manufacturers to meet the strict EPA standards that recommend minimal nitrogen oxide emissions by machines. You should therefore always choose a NOx emission control system that guarantees compliance with the EPA standards. Nitrogen oxide is a common product of the combustion of several substance in the presence of oxygen. This product contributes in creation of acid rain and global warming. This is why its emission needs to be regulated at all costs. There are two major system configurations for the selective catalytic reduction of NOx: high dust selective catalytic reduction and tail end catalytic reduction. Each one of these systems is ideal for different industrial applications and you should select the one that will be effective in the conditions that you work in.

The selective catalytic reduction of NOx offers many benefits including the reduction of NOx. The technology that is used controls the amount of nitrogen oxide that is released after combustion. This is done by converting NOx into water and nitrogen. This reaction is promoted catalytically with ammonia acting as the reducing agent. The flue gas stream are usually conditioned upstream of the reaction chamber this achieves an equal distribution for all the reactants that take part in the reaction. In addition to that, it makes sure that the NOx reductions are within an accepted range. The ammonia slip levels are also maintained. The manufacturers have an expertise in fluid dynamics that they use to develop propriety mixing and injection systems ideal for selective catalytic reduction. This is what creates the optimum solutions for an industrial application depending on its size and location. The result is always the desired reaction that causes reduced emissions of nitrogen and oxygen.

The selective catalytic reduction of NOx is a wide area that uses different catalysts depending on the application. The common catalysts to be used are honeycomb type and plate type catalysts. The catalysts are made available in a variety of diameters. This allows you to select that diameter that is optimized for your industrial application. However, careful study of the composition of flue gas will have to be performed firs and the allowable pressure drop determined. This technology has been proven to work in majority of the industrial processes. You should ensure that you use the SCR system in your industrial processes to reduce the amounts of nitrogen oxides being emitted into the atmosphere.
