Introducing our first case study of 2024! This is an ongoing project which we were called to. This visit involved the introduction of SNCR tech which is one of Hale Engineering’s many specialties.
The team recently introduced Selective Noncatalytic Reduction (SNCR) technology at a client site, aiming to significantly reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions. This system involves the precise blending of urea and water, injected into flue gas through strategically placed nozzles in the combustion chamber.
The engineering team integrated the SNCR system with the client’s Distributed Control System (DCS), facilitating a smooth flow of digital inputs between the two systems.
To complete the SNCR setup, the engineering team installed a urea storage tank. This tank, equipped with power supply and sensors, will ensure continuous monitoring of urea levels. This approach not only streamlines the injection process but also contributes to the overall effectiveness of emissions reduction.
SNCR technology stands out for its precision in reducing NOx emissions across diverse sources. By selectively injecting urea and water into the combustion process, this system optimises emissions control without the need for catalytic converters. The integration of SNCR technology not only adheres to environmental regulations but also enhances overall operational efficiency.
In conclusion this project was successful and the team made this system work much more smoothly. You can see that throughout this post there are various photos which show the process, there are no before and after photos specifically but the photos do show various steps of the process.
