Webinar - Converting to wet stack

Converting to wet stack

It is more and more important for coal fired power stations to maximize their operational efficiency and minimize their emissions. Changing over to wet stack operation can bring economic and environmental advantages, but requires proper design to avoid major operational issues. The webcast will discuss operating issues of wet stacks, detail what is provided from a wet stack model study, provide tips on maintenance of the wet stack liquid collection system, review the economic and environmental impacts of liner material and stack options available today, discuss the process of having a Pennguard lining system installed, and present a case study of converting an existing stack to wet operation.

Organizers:



Topics:

  • Economical and environmental advantages when converting to wet stack operation
  • Basic wet stack design to improve wet operation
  • Impacts of liner material selection
  • Liquid collection and drainage system design
  • Importance of proper liner and LCS installation for wet performance
  • Maintenance of the LCS
  • Wet stack operational problems
  • Plume downwash impacts and design to mitigate


Who should attend:

  • Utility engineers and project managers
  • A&E engineers and project managers
  • Chimney provider engineers, project managers
  • Liner provider engineers, project managers, inspectors

Christian Hensel
Deputy Head of Studies & Renewables of STEAG Energy Services GmbH
Mr. Hensel studied Energy & Environmental Technologies at the Technical University of Hamburg. After his academic studies he started his career as project engineer in company STEAG Energy Services GmbH, an German engineering services provider in the entire field of power and heat generation technologies. In the department Environmental Technologies Mr. Hensel was responsible for Engineering of power plants, especially flue gas cleaning plants. Over the years he adopted comprehensive knowledge in the various fields and technologies of flue gas treatment.

Today Mr. Hensel is Deputy Head of Studies and Renewables within STEAG Energy Services GmbH. One of his latest studies was the “Technical and economical comparison of flue gas discharge options” for one of STEAG’s coal-fired power plants, where flue gas re-heating was compared to wet flue gas discharge using PennguardTM system.
