Porvair Filtration Group has expanded its range of high temperature filters with metallic filter elements optimised for biomass gasification.
Biomass gasification processes are characterised by the use of increasingly high temperatures and a contaminant that can be difficult to remove because of its inherent cohesivity and adhesivity.
The latest metallic filter material developments by Porvair Filtration Group meet temperature requirements and changes to the Pulsejet design enable biomass gasification filter cakes to be removed more effectively.
Biomass gasification involves incomplete combustion of biomass, resulting in production of combustible gases consisting of Carbon monoxide (CO), Hydrogen (H2) and traces of Methane (CH4).
This mixture is called producer gas and can be used to run internal combustion engines (both compression and spark ignition).
Producer gas can also be used as a substitute for furnace oil in direct heat applications and to produce methanol.
Since any biomass material can undergo gasification, this process is more attractive than ethanol production or biogas where only selected biomass materials can produce the fuel.
Porvair Filtration Group operates high levels of quality control under the umbrella of ISO9001, encompassing the requirements of PD5500, ASME VIII, EN13445 and PED for the pressure vessel build, as well as industry related standards.
