Energization solution to reduce particulate emissions from Electro Static Precipitators.
India faces a unique situation at present: high economic growth and yet an abundance of manufacturing capacity due to the high capital spending prior to the Global Finance Crisis. This has led to a proclivity to curtail further capital spending on non-core activities due to the lean demand witnessed post 2008. Achieving emission reductions without the need for significant capital spending is the need of the hour.
The Ador team worked together with the expert team of Redkoh, based in New Jersey, USA to develop a unique solution which allows existing ESP transformer/ rectifiers sets and control panels to be retrofitted such that the main equipment does not need to be replaced, and yet is able to provide results far superior in terms of emission control.
The main technological change is a transition of thyristor based power supply to a Switched Mode Power Supply (SMPS) based technology. Whilst the transformer rectifier stays in place, the control panel and software are upgraded, resulting in emission reductions over 50%
The move from low frequency to high frequency based pollution control has now been tested at many locations across India in the power, cement and paper industry. The Ador Redkoh innovation has been successfully tested at NTPC Dadri, Ambuja Cement, International Paper, Aditya Cement, Aditya Chemical & various other industries.
