Update your system for improved safety and reliability, plus reduce operating costs. The ADA-ES, Inc. (ADA) upgrade service for Activated Carbon Injection (ACI) Systems and Dry Sorbent Injection (DSI) Systems incorporates the industry’s best expertise in mercury and acid gas control. Our service is customized to meet your specifications and tailored to your current system design. ADA’s experienced engineers will always be available when you need them. ADA is the industry leader in ACI, with more systems designed, installed and in operation than any other company in the US. We also offer sales and service of DSI systems for the coal-fired utility industry.
Safety. Does your ACI system meet the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA)’s latest requirements? If you’re even slightly uncertain that your equipment is up-to-date and meets current safety regulations, you could be playing a dangerous game.
Performance. Meeting state and federal compliance levels for mercury is challenging. ADA can help you assess whether you are using too much sorbent; if your system could be more reliable with updated features. We will review your operation forecast to help you identify periods with increased risks of non-compliance.
ADA can help. ADA® Health Check System Inspection provides a strategy review combined with expert analysis to ensure consistent and optimal compliance with state and federal mercury and fire safety rules. This is a value-added approach from world-class mercury control experts. We will help you answer critical questions:
We can review your equipment and overall compliance strategy and provide guidance on how you can best meet fire safety, mercury compliance and improve operating costs across a range of operating conditions.
ADA’s team of experts uses an interactive engineering process to review your equipment performance. We can optimize effectiveness and provide you with upgrades that not only increase reliability, but also reduce your operating costs and improve safety.
Increased System Safety: New ACI systems are typically designed to meet NFPA guidelines. Many of the early ACI systems do not meet this critical safety criteria.
Increase Equipment Reliability & Reduce Maintenance: by using our pneumatic conveying systems (designed specifically for each application), the life of your equipment increases greatly because the components are operating within their peak performance ranges.
Improve System Component Reliability: adding VFDs on the blowers provides air flow management to regulate conveying velocity, depending on the volume of material. This often reduces wear and plugging in the conveying system (due to increased air flow management), resulting in less maintenance and replacement time required, which increases the overall system availability.
Reduce Sorbent Consumption: by optimizing the injection grid design, sorbent is able to more efficiently treat the flue gas, and less overall sorbent is required.
ADA understands the many factors that affect mercury removal and we can help you determine the optimal control strategy for your plant and operations. We assess and recommend ways to improve performance, reliability and safety. Some of the key factors considered include:
Our team has supported plants in evaluating mercury control options for more than 25 years, including conducting mercury control demonstrations at more than 100 plants.
We provide ACI systems serving more than 140 utility boilers, and have internationally recognized mercury control experts on staff. With our expertise on your side, it’s simple to save money and achieve your compliance goals.
