SCR reaction is temperature dependent. SCR catalyst performance testing is done across a range of temperatures and ammonia flows to simulate actual plant operating conditions. In addition, temperature ranges are selected based on the facility’s unique operating profile. This protocol allows our engineers to make the most accurate projection of the remaining catalyst. Innovative Combustion Technologies will maximize the life of your SCR catalysts. Furthermore, we will minimize the plant lifecycle operating costs associated with SCR systems through a proactive SCR catalyst testing plan.
Baseline testing of SCR catalysts provides an important benchmark for planning future catalyst management activities. Performance testing of a baseline sample allows for the most accurate tracking of catalyst performance loss. Moreover, chemical and physical analyses of a baseline sample enable us to track contaminant levels. Also, our testing monitors catalyst deactivation mechanisms as the catalyst ages.
