Temperature, Humidity Control Make Power Plant's Pollution Control Possible

September 2011
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Sep2011, Vol. 83 Issue 9, p26
The article reports on the essence of temperature and humidity control for pollution control of power plants in New Hampshire. It discusses the installation of wet, limestone-based flue-gas-desulphurization (FGD) system at Merrimack Station power plant to limit mercury and sulfur dioxide emissions and meet the strict air-quality legislation in New Hampshire. It notes on the carbon steel tank coated with protected sealant as part of the pollution control system in the area.
