Reducing particle size increases sorbent surface area and reduces the amount of sorbent required. Dry sorbents are typically delivered to power plants unmilled. Testing has proven that the reactivity of sorbents can increase exponentially when sorbent particle sizes are reduced. The best way to increase surface area is to mechanically reduce the particle size by milling the sorbent.
The Simpactor FGT Series effectively improves the emissions of coal fired power plants, industrial boilers, municipal furnaces and bio-mass plants by reducing the particle size of sorbents such as:
- Sodium Bicarbonate
- Hydrated Lime
