Air Pollution Control: Design, Operation & Troubleshooting Webinar Series

Air Pollution Control: Design, Operation & Troubleshooting (Short Course)
Tuesday, August 25 and Thursday, August 27, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm ET

This webinar covers design, operation, testing and troubleshooting air pollution control systems to control particulates, organic vapors, PFAS/PFOS, acid gases, aerosols, metals, NOx and CO. The interactions between the front-end process and the back-end APC are covered in detail. Controls include cyclones, baghouses, venturi scrubbers, wet and dry acid gas absorbers, oxidizers, carbon adsorbers, ESPs, mercury removal, and SCR/SNCR for NOx. Design principals are provided for sizing components. Troubleshooting of systems is provided, along with input on how to design components to avoid outages and failures. The 45 years of the presenter's experience will aid the attendee in avoiding costly mistakes.
