Fuel Changes Wreaking Havoc on Your ESP Performance?
If you have frequent changes in coal supply, or your plant has made the changeover to low sulfur and/or low sodium coal, you may also be experiencing increased opacity or even derates related to the performance of your electrostatic precipitator. SO3 conditioning may just be the solution.
Fly ash resistivity increases when using low sodium or low sulfur fuels, such as PRB coal. SO3 (or sulfur trioxide) conditioning helps achieve optimal dust resistivity and ESP performance - either molten or granular sulfur can work, depending on the application. Whether molten or granular sulfur is used, Neundorfer offers unique technology to ensure improved performance. Our patented remote converters make it possible to:
- Locate the sulfur skid near the sulfur storage, reducing transport hassles
- Place the converter near the precipitator, optimizing SO3 temperatures to avoid proble pluggage and prolong catalyst life

You've heard us mention for a few months now that a SmartAsh upgrade will soon be available. We're putting the finishing touches on our new screens and expect to have the improved software available within a week or two. Need more information?
New from Neundorfer: Baghouse Instrumentation
Neundorfer now offers particulate monitors and differential pressure transmitters to help optimize baghouse performance. Using a unique combination of induction and protected probe technologies, our particulate monitors are for emissions monitoring, fabric filter leak detection in baghouses, and process particulate control monitoring. We also offer non-clogging pressure transmitters designed for measuring differential pressure or static pressure more accurately and reliaby than typcial tube-style transmitters.
These baghouse instruments will be available through our online store soon.
