Wet Flue Gas Desulfurization with Lime/Limestone Slurry

Process Stages. The essential process stages of this wet desulphurisation method are: Absorbent preparation and dosing; Removal of SOx (HCl, HF) Dewatering and conditioning of the product; In this method, limestone (CaCO3) or quicklime (CaO) can be used as the absorbent. The selection of an additive which can be added dry or as a slurry is made

Sulfur Oxide Removal from Waste Gases

The development of lime-limestone scrubbing has followed three major process routes (Figure 1). 1. Introduction of limestone directly into the scrubber. This is the simplest route and seems to be the one favored by the power industry at present. The main drawback is that limestone is not as reactive as lime, which makes it neces-sary to use

Use of limestone for SO2 removal from flue gas in the

Oct 15, 2000· Hydrated lime is normally used as SO 2 sorbent in spray dry scrubbers, whereas limestone is considered unreactive under conditions prevailing in such a system. However, limestone is more easily available and several times cheaper than hydrated lime. We tried to use limestone to remove SO 2 from flue gas in the semidry FGD process with a powder-particle spouted bed.

Scrubber Stone Yager Materials, LLC

Yager Materials is a provider of the high-calcium limestone that is used for flue-gas desulfurization. Commonly called scrubber stone, this type of limestone is ideal as an ingredient in the process to remove sulfur-dioxide from emissions generated by burning coal. With a plentiful supply of high-calcium scrubber stone and convenient access to river transport, Yager materials is able to

Flue-Gas Desulfurization (“Scrubbers”)

design of a scrubber in this particular application. The key aspect of the process is the dissolution of the gas from the fumes into a liquid made of water with suitable additives. This process is called stripping. The outflowing liquid is collected, concentrated, and recycled. Ultimately, the stripped gas ends up

System for removing solids from a used lime or limestone

One common flue gas desulfurization process which is being employed is a wet scrubber using either lime or limestone as the alkaline reactant. During this process, sulfur dioxide is absorbed by a slurry of lime or limestone, which reacts to form calcium sulfite or, if excess air is supplied, calcium sulfate.
