The regeneration process removes catalyst deactivation compounds and restores catalyst activity back to the original OEM level. And since it reuses modules, it provides environmental compliance that looks good for your bottom line.
As one of the first companies to develop catalyst regeneration, CORMETECH has refined the process with over fifteen years of experience with our patented regeneration method. Our Selective Impregnation® process achieves a significantly lower SO2 to SO3 conversion ratio while maintaining a higher catalyst activity, and our testing for mechanical strength has become the EPRI standard.
The modules go through a multi-stage process after arriving at the facility:
- Cleaning to remove fly ash and other particles which cause pluggage
- Immersion in a series of chemical baths to remove deposits that reduce performance
- Undergoes Selective Impregnation®, restoring full catalyst activity by infusing the module surfaces with oxides of base metals (V2O5 and either MoO3 or WO3)
- Recalcination, a heated drying process that re-establishes mechanical strength and fixation of the active metal oxides
CORMETECH’s Kings Mountain and Steele Creek facility can process between 40 and 50 modules per day.
This process has been used in CORMETECH’s own fleet of SCRs since 1997 and has resulted in reduced operations and management costs. Let CORMETECH do the same for you!
