ENVIRONMENTAL CONSULTING AND POLUTION CONTROL
ETS is America’s leading baghouse consultant. We specialize in three areas: 1. Design and Specification; 2. Troubleshooting air-pollution control equipment and systems; and 3. new product development and support services.
An ETS environmental consultant has experience in design, manufacturing, installation, start-up, operation, maintenance, performance evaluation, and troubleshooting. For more information.
Our facilities allow us to make an assessment of your company’s needs. ETS has a fabric-testing laboratory and a fully-instrumented, pilot-scale baghouse for basic research. ETS has conducted several pilot- and full-scale R&D studies, as well as numerous troubleshooting projects in the US, Canada, and Mexico.
ETS consultants have written numerous publications and several books on the technical and practical aspects of baghouses, and have given over 30 baghouse training seminars in this country and abroad.
ETS' unparalleled baghouse experience is evidenced by its ability to offer specialized baghouse environmental consulting services and support, and to develop a unique patented baghouse performance monitoring system. For more information.
An example of ETS environmental consulting services is our work with a coal pulverizing facility. Our work included a detailed baghouse and emission control assessment, an engineering feasibility study of repairing and/or replacing the emission control system, and options for that design. ETS was responsible for sizing and specifying the system hardware, including two 70,000-acfm cyclone precleaners, screw conveyors, and supporting equipment that was to be engineered into the existing system. The job also included developing various conceptual baghouse/cyclone designs (including costs), conveying capacity analysis, system sizing, connecting ductwork and explosion vent sizing, calculating structural steel loads, structural steel design, and selecting and developing the instrumentation to ensure reliable system operations. ETS also assisted in system start-up and troubleshooting. For more case studies.
ETS engineers have developed other emission-control technologies. ETS has patents involving electrostatic precipitator and SO2 control technologies as well as holds baghouse-related patents. Other emission control projects include technology assessment and feasibility studies, design and installation of new or retrofit control equipment, and SO2 control technology demonstrations.
ETS was retained by a large rock quarry operation to design a turnkey crushed stone transfer and air pollution control system. The project included design, specification, fabrication and installation of appropriate screw conveyors, belt conveyors, dust suppression systems and a 25,000 acfm fabric filter control system. This system allows the client to meet the federal and state air pollution standards for both point source and ambient dust. For more case studies.
A major chemical company used ETS services to assess the air pollution control equipment of a catalyst production process. The system was plagued with visible emissions and was a constant source of complaints from local enforcement agencies. For this client ETS defined and profiled emission chemistry, selected alternative control techniques, and made specific recommendations - including equipment specification and recommended operation. The project was a success due to ETS' ability to first define the problem and then apply basic chemical engineering principles. ETS recommended a solution to achieve the program goals.
