Fuel Tech Inc. said it has received multiple air pollution control orders totaling $2.2 million.
The larger of the orders, placed by a domestic utility customer in the Midwest, is for combustion modifications and a separated over-fire air (SOFA) system for a small tangential coal-fired boiler. Fuel Tech's SOFA system utilizes a high energy nozzle design that controls airflow from the secondary air ducts to evenly distribute flow through ports above the top elevation of burners. The system includes burner modifications and equipment to fire 100 percent natural gas, in addition to improving combustion performance and NOx emissions when firing coal. Equipment deliveries are currently scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2012.
In Mexico, an award was received from a new industrial customer for an SCR system that will also utilize an ULTRA system. The customer is seeking NOx reduction at its steel plant to meet regulations affecting new gas-fired units. The SCR reagent will be generated by the ULTRA system and will use urea as opposed to ammonia, which will eliminate the hazards associated with the transport, storage and handling of anhydrous or aqueous ammonia. Equipment deliveries are currently scheduled for the third quarter of 2012.
