Waukegan, Ill., November 28, 2012 – United Conveyor Corporation (UCC) was recently awarded contracts for 11 Dry Sorbent Injection (DSI) systems which include a total of 41 VIPER™ Mills. Dry sorbent injection is a leading technology for the removal of SO2, HCl and SO3 acid gas emissions. UCC’s industry leading technology, including the new VIPER Mill, provides utilities with an efficient and economical method for emissions control.
The patented VIPER Mill is the only mill developed specifically for dry sorbent injection and delivers the smallest particle size, highest throughput and greatest cost savings in the industry. The VIPER Mill reduces sorbent usage by 30-50 percent compared with as-delivered material. In an SO2 removal application, that equates to a $3.0 million annual savings over unmilled trona for a typical 500MW PRB unit at a 60 percent SO2 removal rate. In SO3 removal applications, the high surface area sorbent particle size helps to achieve aggressive SO3 ppm targets, while reducing trona usage by more than 50 percent.
“The superior performance of the VIPER Mill and the depth of our in-line milling experience is a key differentiator in the market. We are excited about the increasing demand for our VIPER Mills,” explains Jon Norman, DSI Technology Manager, UCC. “Smaller particle size leads to lower sorbent quantity consumed. The VIPER Mill delivers the fastest return on capital investment.”
UCC also has the industry’s largest number of full-scale demonstration tests with over 65 conducted to date; 26 of these tests used the VIPER Mill, which successfully documented substantially lower sorbent usage. This test data allows customer lifecycle cost analysis to compare sorbent consumption with VIPER Mill usage, with other milling technologies or without using a mill.
