Sorb-Tec Injection Technology for DSI Systems

Battling sorbent usage inefficiencies

Sorb-Tec is a lance-less injector that is a like-for-like replacement for traditional injection lances used in dry sorbent injection (DSI) and activated carbon injection (ACI) systems. As a proven solution across almost all DSI and ACI systems, Sorb-Tec’s impact to your system is immediate through both significant reductions in sorbent use and related maintenance, translating to significant cost savings for you.

Nol-Tec Sorb-Tec – the difference

Sorb-Tec injectors are fitted to ducts externally, replacing all lances on a one-to-one basis. Using boosted air, Sorb-Tec injectors enhance mixing and dispersion of the sorbent within the duct, ensuring lower sorbent usage and improved flexibility while increasing the efficiency of the chemical reaction.

Some benefits include:

  • Minimized plugging and maintenance issues due to replacement of lances.
  • Reduction in sorbent usage / costs up to 85% meaning fast payback and immediate benefits.
  • Flexibility to meet increased emission targets to mitigate any future tighter environmental control.
  • Improved performance with load changes through in-built flexibility via a VFD delivering boosted air that can be modified depending on load operation to maximize performance.
  • Sorb-Tec is proven to benefit systems injecting all main forms of dry sorbents including hydrated lime, sodium bicarbonate, Trona and activated carbon.
