AirTek Engineering Support Services of Troy Alabama
Engineering support management consulting helps businesses face the many challenges as an owner/operator of an air emission source. AirTek can help you negotiate your way through many of the issues that must be addressed in order to keep your air pollution control system working at optimum performance. Even though each system is unique, AirTek has the experience and expertise to provide a custom engineered solution to meet the environmental and reliability requirements of our customers.
AirTek provides detailed engineering design for electrostatic precipitators, ductwork, structural steel, and balance of plant items. With two design groups comprised of mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, application engineers, and designers, AirTek is capable of supporting projects ranging from basic design changes to complete electrostatic precipitator systems. Our Troy, AL design group primarily focuses on aftermarket design while the Baltimore, MD design group is primarily new equipment. AirTek has extensive experience modifying the various OEM style precipitators to incorporate the modern practices used in AirTek’s design to upgrade performance and reliability.
AirTek is an electrostatic precipitator OEM as well as an air emissions system solution provider. We have experience with wet and dry scrubbing systems, fabric filters, SCRs, dry sorbent injection systems, mechanical dust collectors and fans. We can integrate and assemble “System Solutions” that are tailor made to meet your emission challenges.
AirTek has a staff of experienced Field Service Engineers that can help evaluate your equipment and unit operating conditions to ensure reliable operation. Our staff includes control, electrical, and mechanical system specialist who work with air pollution control equipment on a fulltime basis. As such, they have the knowledge base required to quickly review and analyze your problem to identify probable causes and solutions. The field service department:
- Perform routine maintenance inspections
- Provide reports detailing findings and recommended future work
- Provide troubleshooting assistance
- Respond to emergency calls
- Provide start-up and commissioning services
AirTek routinely assists our customers with recommendations to ensure their equipment maintains a high level of reliability and meets performance requirements. Our field service department relays reliability/end-of-life concerns to the engineering group for analysis and recommendations. We communicate the concerns and recommendations to our customers and provide budgetary planning estimates to provide ample time to rectify the issue before it becomes debilitating.
When performance of the unit is a concern or the boiler capacity is being upgraded, our applications engineers can determine what changes, if any, will be required to meet the desired outlet emissions. Typical areas in which improvement can be made are additional collecting area, redesign of plate/electrode geometry, electrical power sectionalization or enhancement, flue gas flow modifications, and controller upgrades.
Precipitator Control Upgrades
Since it is often advantageous to match new controller upgrades to similar systems at a given facility, AirTek does not promote any OEM precipitator control system. We have experience installing every major OEM voltage controller, rapper controller, and management system. If the customer is not partial to any given controller, we can recommend an OEM system based on the customer’s performance needs, regulatory compliance monitoring requirements, and budgetary concerns.
Controller retrofits can be performed during any routine maintenance outage. In most cases, the majority of the existing auxiliary equipment (enclosures, breakers, contractors, etc…) can be reused only requiring the proprietary components to be replaced. AirTek provides detailed operator and electrician training following the upgrade to ensure personnel are adequately prepared to operate and maintain the new equipment.
