In the dynamic field of chemical processing and environmental conservation, Anssum consistently showcases its prowess through innovative solutions. Their latest initiative, centred around the Batch Digester HP (High Pressure) Gas Release in South Africa, is a testament to this commitment.

Project Overview

  • Focus Areas: Chemicals, Environment
  • Country: South Africa
  • Description: Batch Digester HP Gas Release
  • Status: Completed
  • Duration: 14/06/2022 – 14/07/2022

The Innovation

Traditional methods of gas release from batch digesters often relied on a linear decay set point. Anssum, in its bid to optimise this process, proposed employing the Bernoulli set point for gas release. This approach ensures a more consistent and constant flow of gas from the digester, providing several tangible benefits.

Technical Details

Batch digesters play a critical role in chemical processes, and the manner in which they release gas can significantly impact other systems downstream. The Bernoulli set point for gas release results in a constant volume of gas being released, as opposed to the conventional constant pressure method. This uniformity in gas flow allows for:

  • Improved absorption in the pressure/strengthening tank: A steady flow ensures that the tank can absorb the gas efficiently, minimising sudden loads and potential inefficiencies.
  • Enhanced performance of the venturi system: A sudden surge of gas can strain the venturi system, but a consistent flow mitigates such challenges.

Outcome and Achievements

Post-implementation of the Bernoulli set point, the initiative recorded remarkable improvements:

  • A shift from constant pressure release to constant volume release, ensuring more predictable and manageable gas flows.
  • A significant 50% improvement in absorption stability in SO2 recovery, demonstrating the effectiveness of the new approach.
  • A whopping 500% increase in strengthening tank absorption, underlining the profound impact of consistent gas release on downstream processes.

Concluding Remarks

Anssum’s innovative approach to the Batch Digester HP Gas Release epitomises their forward-thinking approach to chemical processes and environmental conservation. By embracing the Bernoulli set point, they have ushered in a new era of efficiency and stability for the involved systems, reinforcing their reputation as leaders in the field.

Anssum’s relentless pursuit of innovation and excellence ensures that industries evolve and adapt to the ever-changing landscape of chemical processing and environmental conservation. This project is yet another feather in their cap, setting a benchmark for future endeavours.
