Keywords: Analytical Laboratories

The Nalco Mobotec Center of Innovation for Air Protection Technologies is located in the Nalco research and development centers and include the Analytical Laboratories. We provide a unique approach to air protection that combines our core competencies in combustion, boiler systems, emissions equipment and chemistry. These advanced capabilities allow us to work individually with our clients to determine the optimum treatment program for every system.

Our Analytical Laboratories offer a full range of capabilities that provide comprehensive answers over a wide range of areas, including:

  • Fuel analyses
  • Liquid analyses
  • Deposit analyses
  • Metallurgical testing

As the demands for more stringent pollutant control expand, Nalco researchers are developing new programs for enhanced air protection. We also endeavor continuously to enable operational changes in our clients’ plants. Example project areas span NOx control, SOx reduction—including FGD systems and effluent—metals removal, CO2 capture, and fuel switching/biomass cofiring.

Additional services include testing necessary to improve furnace efficiency via fireside chemical treatment. Services comprise:

  • Ash fusion characterization
  • Ash analysis
  • Slagging index determination

Use of these treatments helps control slag, thus keeping boiler tubes cleaner for better heat transfer (improved efficiency) and maintaining tube integrity by minimizing overheating.

CFD Modeling

Computers can perform the millions of calculations required to simulate the interaction of fluid and gases (before, during, and after combustion), with the complex heat surfaces and equipment used in power plants and industrial boilers. Today, Nalco Mobotec maintains a large in-house CFD modeling team, all of whom hold doctorate degrees and qualify as subject matter experts in combustion and CFD modeling.


Engineering Services - Nalco Mobotec

The impact of air protection strategies is analysed in detail on a plant-wide basis resulting in impact assessments of equipment such as air heaters, fans, burners, pulverizers, ducting systems, ESPs, and bag houses. The Engineering Group within Nalco Mobotec is a multidisciplinary team dedicated to designing emissions-reduction systems that are reliable, effective, and optimized for the customer.


CFD Modeling, Analytical Laboratory Services, Design & Detail Engineering & On-site Services

Computer models are necessary to fully understand and accurately predict furnace performance, including the interaction of fluid and gases (before, during, and after combustion), with the complex heating surfaces and equipment used in utility and industrial boilers.


On-Site Services - Nalco Mobotec

Invariably, we achieve superior product performance and customer satisfaction when our experts support client relationships through our suite of highly effective, productivity-enhancing services. This principle is key to our developing emission reductions of CO, NOx, SOx, Hg, PM and LOI through the MobotecSystem™. Nalco Mobotec recognizes that conditions both inside and outside the combustion system can change.
