Therma-Chem FS-12


Technology for reducing energy use and emissions through clean on-load fireside cleaning of industrial boilers and refinery process.

The treatment:

-It consist in spraying, periodicaly, on-line, into the combustion chamber of an aqueus sollution Therma-Chem FS-12, through a specially designed dosing/spraying system.

The effects of the treatment

  1. Reduce/eliminate trouble with slagging and fouling in specific parts of the unit: radiant cells, superheaters, economizers, air-heaters, etc.
  2. Eliminate sulphurous deposits and low temperature acid corrosion,
  3. Eliminate vanadium corrosion and high temperature corrosion,
  4. Improve boiler and process furnace efficiency,
  5. Reduce specific fuel consumption,
  6. Reduce COx, SOx, NOx emissions,
  7. Reduce or eliminate soot blowing,
  8. Make unis easier to clean.

(Large Combustion Plant Directive 2001/80/EC):

Energy Serv has a License Agreement with GB Therma-Chem Ltd. (Scotland – UK) to distribute and apply this technology in Central and East European Countries and Middle East Countries in it’s green house gas emissions reduction projects.

The application scheme that was used, was generally EPC type (Energy Performance Contracts).

-  Proiect JI Romania-Denmark: CET HOLBOCA, coal fuel, 2×50 MWe, reducing CO2 emissions by 22,000 t / year;

-  Energy efficiency projects: CET TURCENI, lignite fuel, 4×330 MWe, increasing energy efficiency and reducing GHG emissions;

-  Energy efficiency projects: restoring capacity and availability of CET Bucharest South boiler,  525 t / h, fuel oil, 3% Sulfur

The technology was successfully applied in other areas such as Greece (Motor Oil-Refinery), Croatia (Rijeka refineries Sisaksi), Bulgaria (Lukoil-Neftochim refinery), Romania (Rompetrol refinery-Petromidia), United Arab Emirates (UAE) , Saudi Arabia.

Energy-Serv is committed to expanding the application of this technology as a “low cost” measure of reducing  greenhouse gas emissions and increasing energy efficiency of Large Combustion Plants.
