Potato processers find efficient emissions control solution in Dürr Megtec’s advanced wet electrostatic precipitator

Environmental compliance is a hot topic on the minds of many food processors, and the potato industry is no exception. Potato processors are finding the advanced design of Dürr Megtec’s recently released Part.X PW Wet ElectroStatic Precipitator (WESP) to be an efficient and low maintenance solution to control particulate matter (PM) from frying exhaust.

When compared with Dürr Megtec’s original WESP, the advanced WESP:
 
  • Can be installed in a shorter time period, resulting in faster startups
  • Has a smaller footprint, so it fits into existing plants better
  • Features a lower pressure drop, which has less impact on plant operations


Part.X PW guarantees removal efficiencies of 90 to 99 percent and can be sized 15,000 to 100,000 acfm in a single module. Larger gas flows and applications requiring redundancy can be handled using multiple modules.

Some states target PM and require emissions to be so low that they require a WESP to comply with standards. However, other states focus on Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and can reach suitable emissions levels with similar potato processing applications using a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO).

Dürr Megtec is a one-stop shop, providing both wet electrostatic precipitators and regenerative thermal oxidizers to control both particulate matter and volatile organic compounds.
