Preventing localised hydrogen cyanide gas emissions

Paul Boughton

Three Honeycat Air Pollution Control Systems designed for the abatement of hydrogen cyanide gas from the reduction process of a carbon fibre manufacturing plant have been installed by AirProtekt.

AirProtekt’s value for money Honeycat Air Pollution Control System comprised a compact skid mounted oxidiser designed to comply with the environmental emission limits demanded by the carbon fibre plant’s local regulatory authorities and minimise on-site installation time.

“The textile processing project required an air pollution control system that was very much proven on this process. The solution AirProtekt opted to use has proved effective for over thirty years in various applications worldwide. The air pollution control system featured gas tight sealing to prevent localised emissions of toxic hydrogen cyanide gas.  Mindful of the local people living in nearby residential properties the system needed to be both highly effective at capturing and treating the hydrogen cyanide emissions as well as being very quiet in operation to avoid noise pollution,” explained Trevor Lawton, AirProtekt’s managing director

With an expected availability of more than 99 per cent the reliable Honeycat Air Pollution Control System features a superior performance catalyst to ensure environmental emission limits for hydrogen cyanide gas are dealt with efficiently.

A very low maintenance solution, the electrically pre heated abatement system is designed to be capable of running at low catalyst operating temperatures which helps to minimise running costs, thermal stress and ensures a long operating life.
