Fossil fired power stations worldwide are exposed to increasing pressure to operate with maximum efficiency and minimum emissions. A power station built in 2020 is significantly more efficient, both economically and environmentally, than a power station built in 2000, 1980, or 1960. In spite of these technical leaps, chimneys today are essentially the same as forty years ago, except for the fact that they use different materials of construction for their internal flues.
This paper will suggest five concepts that should be considered when any new chimney is built, either for a new power station or for an existing power station that is being modernized:
- FGD Wet Stack
- New Chimney Design
- WetReady Guide Vane™
- Top Diffusor™
- Pennguard™ lining placed in the 45ºHigh Velocity Pattern™
