While many sites use sodium sorbents for removal of HCl, and many others for removing SO2 or other acid gases, there is a paucity of publicly available data on the removal of HCl in the presence of SO2, especially in the case of coal-fired power generation. SOLVAir Solutions conducted controlled pilot tests using CAPP coal which demonstrates the selectivity of sodium sorbents to remove HCl in a medium to high sulfur environment.
LGR’s new ground-breaking Ultra-Portable Methane Analyzer (UMA) reports measurements of methane and water vapor simultaneously in a package that is compact and crushproof. Small enough to be carried on-board aircraft (TSA approved size) and requiring only 60 watts, the UMA travels anywhere, initiates data collection within 100 seconds after power up, and opens up new opportunities to accurately and precisely measure methane with ease.
