Fuel treatment is the most critical component of any cogeneration system in a biogas aplication. Without proper fuel treatment, your generating equipment is exposed to moisture, hydrogen sulfides, and siloxanes which slowly eat away at the inner workings of your equipment.
Calpwr now offers fuel treatment technology for a variety of generation equipment. This technology can be built to address biogas generation applications ranging from 30 kW and up.
Our system takes problematic sour gas from biogas and landfill applications and delivers contaminant-free, dry gas to the power generation equipment resulting in dramatically reduced engine maintenance costs.
Typical performance of our fuel treatment systems:
Gas Inlet Conditions: (typical)
Moisture: 100% Saturated
Pressure: 7-16” WC
H2S: 100 PPM to 2000PPM
Siloxane: Present in non treated gas (landfill and digesters) (D3, D4, and D5)
Gas Outlet Conditions after treatment:
Moisture: < 25% rH
Pressure to engine: 1.5 to 3 PSI
Pressure to turbines: 85 to 140 psi (compression required)
Temperature: 80F to 100F
H2S: To Permit Level
Siloxane: Non detectable
