< Back to case studies

Waste to Energy plant in the UK

Sector: Industrial

A leading Air Pollution Equipment supplier for a Waste to Energy plant in the UK.

The problem

The client had a special requirement in that the APC requirement was for both an Electrostatic Precipitator(ESP) pre-collector and Fabric Filter (fine particulate collection) connected in series and needed commonality of controls.

The solution

Castlet utilised experience in both ESP power supply and control and PLC automation to develop and produce a common platform system incorporating both systems. (As many plants - utilising different package technology suppliers, end up with different control products and software platforms), causing a mis-match when integrating into the overall plant control system.  This also enabled Castlet to develop further Fabric Filter controls which usually require fast switching techniques for pulse jet bag cleaning.
