TurboSonic Announces Order for Conductive Composite WESP: Proprietary New Material Cuts Cost of Expensive Alloys by More Than 50%
For Immediate Release
Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
December 6, 2011
The SonicKleen™ WESP, which is the most advanced wet electrostatic precipitator design on the market, is used to control fine particulate, condensable particulate matter and acid mist emissions from industrial processes and power generation.
SonicCharge™ CCM is a new, proprietary material developed by TurboSonic for use in corrosive applications. SonicCharge™ CCM has demonstrated superior performance against the high cost alloys that it was designed to replace, at a cost competitive with lower grade stainless steels. It is also superior to the alternative non-metallic materials on the market today; PVC and polypropylene are unable to withstand arcing and sparking present in WESPs, thus leaving the material susceptible to failure. SonicCharge™ CCM even outperformed stainless steel under sustained electrical arcing.
SonicCharge™ CCM was introduced at the 12th International Conference on Electrostatic Precipitation in Nuremberg, Germany in May 2011. Multiple patents are pending.
The market for SonicCharge™ CCM use in WESPs is extensive for all corrosive applications, ranging from acid plants on metallurgical smelters to utility coal-fired power generation. The total market for WESPs worldwide is estimated by the McIlvaine Company at $685 million in 2011, increasing to $806 million by 2013.
