Hurricane lines of cyclones are the ideal solution to clean hot gases for energy recovery purposes. They can be designed to be very efficient while having a low pressure drop and very low maintenance. The total cost of acquisition is therefore much lower than that of an ESP or a ceramic filter and the range of applicability much broader.
ACS has experience in several energy recovery applications, including gas cleaning after the pre-heater tower in cement plants (MVD=2,5µm; µ=90%) or gas cleaning after a biomass boiler in particleboard manufacturing plants (MVD=11µm; µ =85%).
Mechanical ReCyclone Systems (ReCyclone MH) are a solution to improve cyclone efficiency, when working as a final dedusting system. They can work with several lines of Hurricane cyclones with different performances depending on the requests of the clients.
A ReCyclone® MH decreases emissions of Hurricane cyclones alone by 40 to 60 %
As with cyclone systems, ReCyclone® MH systems are very robust, do not have temperature limitations and do not have moving parts to be frequently changed.
In calcination lines, concerns have to be taken regarding the peripheral equipment, namely recirculation fan and rotary valves to stand abrasive dusts and high temperatures.
