What is Resistive Splitting and Why Use It?

Capital costs are one large consideration when installing air pollution mitigation, especially for utilities and industrial boilers. However, ongoing maintenance and materials costs can have an even greater impact over time. Dry sorbent injection (DSI) systems keep capital costs in check, but sorbent effectiveness must be boosted for cost effectiveness.

Here’s where our state-of-the-industry resistive splitter design comes in.

Our innovative DSI system designs make the most of sorbent materials. With our resistive splitter technology, sorbent materials do not take the path of least resistance and are instead dispersed equally through each injection lance. Non-resistive splitting, on the other hand, leaves gaps in the sorbent flow, so pollutants may or may not interact with the chemical. The process of resistive splitting fills the duct with a consistent flow of sorbent, so flue gases stream through a curtain of sorbent. This ensures maximum contact between gases and sorbent, which results in efficient chemical interaction and mitigation—and decreases sorbent usage.

Nol-Tec’s in-house experts developed this resistive splitting technology, based on our 30 years of experience in the pneumatic conveying industry.

Our resistive splitting technology can:

  • Increase the effectiveness of your sorbent, decreasing overhead costs.
  • Reduce abrasion on the equipment, so a broader range of sorbents can be considered, while lowering your maintenance costs.
  • Install easily at the main convey pipe, which lowers the costs to integrate the technology into your process.

Remaining competitive today means keeping costs down and efficiency up. With the innovation and proven success of resistive splitting, that’s exactly what Nol-Tec helps you achieve. Contact us today to get started!
