Pipe Bundles for Wet Electrostatic Filters in the Waste Incineration Industry

STEULER-KCH is the expert when it comes to sophisticated solutions involving plastics.Amongst other things, we supply plastic pipe bundles for wet electrostatic filters used in the flue gas desulphurisation units of incinerators. The filters are used to remove pollutants, suchas aerosols, dust and ash particles. The principle is as simple as it is effective: to separatethe pollutants, they are first electrostatically charged within the pipes of the electrostaticprecipitator, then deposited on the oppositely charged surface of the pipes, and finallycollected in the filter sump.

Our portfolio of services includes the design, production and installation of tube bundles made from thermoplastic polymers, both with and without electrically conductive surfaces. We use modular designs that allow us to adapt the bundles to different component shapes and sizes, according to customer specifications. Our many years of experience make us the partner of choice for glass-fibre reinforced plastic (GRP) housings and pipes for irrigation systems and gas distribution.

STEULER-KCH primarily uses the following thermoplastic materials for its pipes:

  • Polypropylene (PP), adapted to be flame retardant
  • Unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (PVC-U), inherently flame retardant
  • Post-chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (PVC-C), inherently flame retardant
  • Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), inherently flame retardant

We offer you professional support from an assigned contact person – from the initial consultation through to on-site installation. We provide you with detailed, customised advice on selecting the combination of materials best suited for your project, taking into account various factors of the plant environment, such as the expected chemical, mechanical and thermal stresses and the plant’s geometry. Our consultancy service always includes a plausibility check regarding design and materials and comprehensive project support to ensure smooth and timely implementation – even for complex projects. We develop custom combinations of materials in close consultation with users from the field. Our after-sales service gives our customers the opportunity to share their experiences of completed projects, to learn about current product developments and if desired, to have previously installed products inspected and evaluated concerning their remaining service life.
