Applications

Whether you are using landfill or digester gas to fuel engines, turbines, microturbines, boilers, fuel cells, or are upgrading it for pipeline injection or vehicle fueling we can eliminate siloxane related problems.

 

Got catalysts? No problem. Our guaranteed performance will give you the peace of mind you need in any situation.

 

Watch our video showing some common applications, a few of the many sites using our gas treatment equipment, and our production facilities.

 

Then, download our Application Data Sheet to tell us about your biogas project, and let us show you how our siloxane and VOC reduction and monitoring systems can improve your profits, protect your investments, and simplify your day to day operations.

Reciprocating Engines

Reducing siloxanes in the fuel gas for your reciprocating engines will eliminate silicone dioxide build up as a cause of maintenance, significantly reducing the frequency of oil changes, spark plug changes, top end overhauls and parts failures. It will also maximize engine efficiency and uptime, increasing power production and project revenue.

Gas Turbines

Siloxane build up in a gas turbine will significantly reduce efficiency over time, fouling nozzles and recuperators, and leading to frequent and expensive overhauls. Siloxane reduction eliminates siloxane related maintenance and keeps your turbine operating at peak efficiency, minimizing costs and maximizing profits.

Exhaust Catalysts

Left untreated, siloxanes can destroy an exhaust catalyst in a matter of hours, so when post combustion catalysts are required for emissions control, reliable and verifiable siloxane reduction is a necessity. Two stages of siloxane treatment with an integrated continuous siloxane monitor ensures siloxane levels remain below detectable limits, providing guaranteed catalyst protection.

Boilers

Siloxane buildup in a landfill or digester gas fueled boiler will coat internal surfaces and foul burner tips, significantly reducing heat transfer efficiency. Just one overhaul of your boiler to remove siloxane related build up can more than pay for a regenerative siloxane reduction system. Consider it an insurance policy - and a smart investment.

Fuel Cells

Siloxanes can cause rapid failure of a fuel cell if left untreated. Even levels of a few ppb have been found to lead to rapid deposits and failure. As with other critical applications, two stages of siloxane treatment with an integrated continuous siloxane monitor ensures siloxane levels remain below detectable limits providing guaranteed protection and worry free operation.

Biogas Upgrading

When upgrading biogas to natural gas quality for pipeline injection of vehicle fueling, siloxane reduction is a critical step to achieve quality requirements and protect your upgrading process. As with other critical applications, two stages of siloxane treatment with an integrated continuous siloxane monitor ensures siloxane levels remain below detectable limits providing guaranteed protection and worry free operation.
