Industrial VOC Abatement

ASK Piearcey designed a range of split bed rect-annular carbon adsorbers for the adsorption of methyl chloride on a coating process.

The equipment was manufactured to our designs by EIS Ltd

ASK Piearcey were asked to investigate the possible release of VOCs from a printing process. Smoke testing and flow measurement from ASK Piearcey demonstrated clearly that there were no fugitive emissions from the process. By investigating the prime VOC sources in the process ASKP Ltd were able to advise the client regarding minor extract philosophy changes to improve stack emissions, which were found to be compliant

VOC Abatement

VOC Abatement

ASK Piearcey were asked to provide designs for movable carbon adsorbers to assist in the removal of VOCS from combined vent and breather sources, some of which ere already treated via a scrubber. Modifications to the scrubber operation involving re-use of another waste water stream improved the scrubber performance and hence allowed for an improvement in design carbon bed life. The units are due to replace existing static adsorbers and will provide for easier carbon change and reduction in on site, associated hazards.

The project was under taken with Transvac Ltd who built the original scrubber.

Municipal Waste Odour Control

ASK Piearcey designed, managed and commissioned this dual stage odour control. unit using copper oxide impregnated carbon protected by a pre-filter unit.

The system controls emissions from the blow-down of a brand new autoclave cooking process to handle municiple waste. The unit completely removed the strong “chemical” odours from the non-condensible exhaust.

Fume Abtement Success

ASK Piearcey designed, managed and commissioned a laser cutter fume system to replace some old and expensive to run units.

A single carbon adosrber with 2 stage pre-filtration has reduced filter changes from daily to every 3 weeks and carbon changes from every 2 days to once annually (not changed as yet). Estimated cost savings >£10k per annum excluding the cost of down time.

The system treats approximately 800m3/hr of fume containing up to 25ppm HCl and VOC from the PVC sheet as it is laser cut.
