Emission Control

Emission control with high efficiency cyclones systems

Particulate matter (PM) emission control is a common problem in industries that operate boilers or incinerators for energy production, or furnaces, kilns and dryers for the manufacturing of products, such as ceramics, cement or pellets.

Complying with stack emission limits, avoiding the carry through of particles to downstream processes or purifying ambient air, are the main motivations for clients to reduce PM emissions.

Cyclones have the advantage of easily handling a wide range of operating temperatures, pressures and moisture conditions, unlike other dust collectors, e.g. bag filters. By its simple design, without any moving parts, cyclones have much lower maintenance costs than other industrial filtration systems.

ACS revolutionary approach to cyclone design dramatically enhances efficiency and frequently exempts the use of other filters as end stage dedusters.
