Project Overview

  • Focus Areas: Chemicals, Environment
  • Location: South Africa
  • Project: Batch Digester HP Gas Release
  • Status: Completed
  • Timeline: 14/06/2022 – 14/07/2022

The Challenge

The traditional approach to gas release from batch digesters was based on a linear decay set point. However, this method could lead to irregularities in the gas flow, posing challenges for downstream processes.

The Bernoulli Principle Solution

Anssum proposed a paradigm shift: using the Bernoulli set point for gas release. This method guarantees a more steady and constant flow of gas from the digester. The benefits of this refined approach include:

  • Consistent Gas Release: By transitioning from a constant pressure release system to a constant volume release, the gas flow becomes more predictable, allowing for better management and control.
  • Enhanced Absorption: The constant flow ensures that the pressure/strengthening tank absorbs the gas more effectively. This minimises sudden loads, leading to improved reliability in processes downstream.
  • Venturi System Protection: A steady flow of gas ensures that the venturi system, crucial for mixing and spraying, isn’t subjected to sudden surges, thus enhancing its longevity and performance.

Impactful Outcomes

Post-implementation of the Bernoulli approach, the initiative yielded commendable results:

  • A successful shift from constant pressure release to constant volume release.
  • An impressive 40% improvement in absorption reliability in SO2 recovery, showcasing the effectiveness of the initiative.

In Conclusion

Anssum’s forward-thinking approach to the Batch Digester HP Gas Release has set new standards in the fields of chemical processing and environmental conservation. By leveraging the Bernoulli set point, they’ve not only enhanced efficiency but also ensured that industries are better equipped to face future challenges.

Anssum continues to be at the forefront of innovation, with projects like these underscoring their commitment to excellence and sustainability in the chemical and environmental sectors.
