Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 9 – Economics (Atomizing Air vs. Atomizing Steam Production)

Posted on October 13th, 2017 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence

Previous posts discussed incineration, atomization, stack losses and plant air production. From previous discussion, atomizing approximately 210 lb/min of liquid waste would require approximately 70 lb/min of atomization gas, which corresponds to 4200 lb/hr of steam or 933 cfm (70 lb/min / 0.075 lb/ft3) of atomizing air.

Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 8 – Economics (Plant Air Production)

Posted on October 5th, 2017 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence

Previous posts discussed incineration, atomization and associated stack losses. The air compressor is loaded for approximately 30 seconds while drawing 400 kW of electrical energy and unloaded for approximately 60 seconds while drawing 60 kW.

Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 7 – Economics (Stack Losses)

Posted on September 14th, 2017 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence

Previous posts discussed incineration and atomization. Atomizing with air instead of steam effectively relocates some combustion air to the liquid waste nozzles and eliminates the need for atomization steam. Continue reading “Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 7 – Economics (Stack Losses)” »

Air vs. Steam Atomization Part 6 – Economics

Posted on September 7th, 2017 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence

Previous posts discussed the incineration and atomization processes as related to air compressor capacity. It may seem that quite a bit of investigative work and thinking has been done without putting pencil to paper to determine if it makes economic sense to use air atomization instead of steam atomization.
