Powdered Activated Carbon Injection for Mercury Abatement

Activated Carbon Injection

Dry Sorbent Injection Systems Designed for Maximum Effectiveness

Powdered activated carbon is the mercury abatement sorbent proven to be most effective. However, what makes it so effective also makes it the most challenging to handle. The ultra-fine, flowable characteristics of powdered activated carbon increase mercury removal – but standard eductor technology does not work well with this material. Low convey pressures and material leakage mean higher costs and less efficient mercury abatement.

Designed for our Sorb-N-Ject® technology solution, Nol-Tec’s innovative non-eductor technology maximizes activated carbon injection for mercury abatement.

Benefits of Nol-Tec’s Activated Carbon Injection:

  • Ability to increase convey pressure to meet your system’s specific convey distances
  • Use of resistive splitting for even material distribution for greater pollution mitigation
  • Allows for greatest flexibility both in injection rates and sorbent types

Nol-Tec's Sorb-N-Ject activated carbon injection systems have proven successful with many permanent installations at companies such as Southern Companies, First Energy, and TVA. Our approach specializes in using time-tested handling methods for sorbent materials delivery in innovative configurations to increase in mercury abatement and pollution mitigation to meet EPA regulations.

Sorb-N-Ject technology is custom-engineered to meet your specific requirements. It starts with a free, no-obligation review of your application and requirements. Nol-Tec balances sound technical expertise with innovative thinking, to partner with you to exceed your expectations and deliver success.
