High-temperature, high-pressure probe for hazardous air pollutants sampling in advanced power systems

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METC) has developed a number of new technologies for efficient utilization of coal in the generation of electrical power. The superior performance of these systems is currently being demonstrated in a number of locations through the Clean Coal Technology program and other programs managed by METC. However, the environmental performance of these systems has not yet been thoroughly characterized, so METC has initiated programs to address this lack of data. The first step in this regard is to measure the eleven elements identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as being air toxics. The best ... continued below

Description

The Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METC) has developed a number of new technologies for efficient utilization of coal in the generation of electrical power. The superior performance of these systems is currently being demonstrated in a number of locations through the Clean Coal Technology program and other programs managed by METC. However, the environmental performance of these systems has not yet been thoroughly characterized, so METC has initiated programs to address this lack of data. The first step in this regard is to measure the eleven elements identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as being air toxics. The best way to characterize advanced systems with respect to the fate of the eleven toxic elements is to perform a mass balance as they move through the various components of the system. Irrespective of the instrumental method used to analyze a sample extracted from within an advanced system, the sampling probe will need to gather a representative sample from a high-temperature, high-pressure environment. To this end, METC tasked Radian Corporation, now known as Radian International, with the design, construction, and application of a suitable probe. The probe was used to gather data on hazardous air pollutants (HAPS) at the Destec LGTI gasifier in Placquemine, Louisiana, in 1995. The probe performed well and provided useful particulate and gas-phase sample from the middle of the gasifier itself, prior to any cooling or pressure letdown.
