DSS Energy Efficiency: Emission Control & Ash Handling

DSS Energy Efficiency: Emission Control & Ash Handling is part seven of the DSS Energy Efficiency 16-part training series featuring DSS owner-operator content.

The course introduces the categories of emissions and discusses the methods used to control and/or collect the most prevalent and most commonly regulated primary pollutants and by-products emitted by the combustion process in industrial-fired boilers and process equipment.

Course objectives include:

  • Exercise proper safety precautions when operating emission control systems
  • Classify the three basic categories of emissions
  • Remove ash from the furnace using pneumatic or hydraulic systems
  • Remove fly ash from the stack gases in boilers using mechanical collectors, electrostatic precipitators, and baghouses
  • Understand the three general approaches used to control sulfur dioxide emissions
  • Control the emission of nitrogen oxides produced in the combustion process
  • Apply specific best practices to manage the energy consumption of emission control systems.
