Scrubber and limestone systems

Capture SO2 at a lower operating cost

Coal crusher
Due to increasing regulations, many coal-fired plants are capturing harmful SO2 gases with a Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) system. The most common is the wet scrubber/limestone system, which can remove more than 95% of flue gas SO2 and produce useful gypsum by-products in the process.

To achieve such an efficiency rate at an acceptable cost, the system’s pumps, compressors, crushers and agitators must operate reliably and efficiently. Given the highly corrosive materials and tough operating conditions involved, it’s quite a challenge. SKF can help meet it with a range of advanced equipment and reliability solutions.
