Burning fossil fuels in boilers creates byproducts harmful to the environment. Knowing the harmful byproducts of combustions, such as fly ash, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide, is necessary to understand the importance of pollution control equipment installed on modern boilers.
The Scrubbers and Ash Removal System training course identifies the primary pollutants emitted from fossil-fuel boilers. It explains the basic design and operation of baghouses, electrostatic precipitators, and scrubbers. This online course includes:
- Pollution types
- Bottom ash removal systems
- Fly ash removal systems
- SO2 and NO2 control
Scrubbers and Ash Removal Systems is part of the Hydrocarbon Fired Boilers training series.
- Training Type: Online Interactive
