Reagents Supplies

At Filter Designs, we specialise in building, installing and maintaining different types of gas filtration systems, particularly focussing on hot gas filtration. Today we’re going to turn our attention to the use of reagents in our processes.

What are reagents?

Reagents are substances and mixtures used in chemical analysis, or to create a particular reaction. These compounds are added to existing systems to cause a chemical change, At Filter Designs, we use the following reagents: sodium bicarbonate, lime, activated carbon (PAC), and urea.

How are reagents used?

The specific amount of reagents used are considered within the design stage of our flue gas treatment plants. We supply reagents for various applications, including those for HCL and SO2 neutralisation (DeSOx); for the capture of dioxins, furans, and heavy metals; for DeNOx (SNCR); as well as for hazardous waste disposal of the APC residue. In order for us to offer a suitable dosing plant system, it’s necessary to consider the amount of consumed reagents within the plant model as a whole. The efficiency, of a reagent depends on proper specification and application within the plant itself, which refers to the relationship between the relative quantities of substances taking part in a given reaction, or formation of a compound.

What about the costs?

Whilst designing these systems, we developed a 'reagent waste calculator' which makes it easy for us to evaluate the CAPEX/OPEX spending. Current market rates for reagent supply in all forms are available, and we are able to offer advice depending on your plant’s requirements. We supply reagents directly to you at competitive and affordable rates. By calculating the NOx, SOx, HCI and gas volume and temperature as inputs, we are able to provide the estimated running costs in just a few minutes. We can even add value by keeping the system maintained, through monitoring the reagent use regularly to ensure the system remains efficient.

What else should I know?

Within the industry, as new technologies develop, it’s possible for us to provide you with further advice as and when the technology is relevant and available. Additionally, we offer services for the appropriate disposal of APC residue. This residue from the bag filter can be removed with a pneumatic conveying line, bulk bag, conditioned for skips, or for alternative disposal options.
