Services include the design of air pollution control equipment and wastewater treatment systems. Design of process systems for treating water and vapors from contaminated aquifers. The world's future depends on clean air and water.

Air Pollution Control

air pollution design services



Costello can provide the design and specification of air pollution control systems for a wide range of pollutants including but not limited to:

  • Particulate control

    • Mechanical collectors (dust cyclones, multicyclones)

    • Electrostatic precipitators An electrostatic precipitator (ESP), or electrostatic air cleaner is a particulate collection device that removes particles from a flowing gas (such as air) using the force of an induced electrostatic charge. Electrostatic precipitators are highly efficient filtration devices that minimally impede the flow of gases through the device, and can easily remove fine particulate matter such as dust and smoke from the air stream.

    • Baghouses - Designed to handle heavy dust loads, a dust collector consists of a blower, dust filter, a filter-cleaning system, and a dust receptacle or dust removal system (distinguished from air cleaners which utilize disposable filters to remove the dust).

    • Particulate scrubbers- Wet scrubber is a form of pollution control technology. The term describes a variety of devices that use pollutants from a furnace flue gas or from other gas streams. In a wet scrubber, the polluted gas stream is brought into contact with the scrubbing liquid, by spraying it with the liquid, by forcing it through a pool of liquid, or by some other contact method, so as to remove the pollutants.

  • Scrubbers

    • Baffle spray scrubber

    • Cyclonic spray scrubber

    • Selective catalytic reduction (SCR)

    • Selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR)

    • NOx scrubbers

    • Exhaust gas recirculation

    • Catalytic converter (also for VOC control)

  • VOC abatement

    • Adsorption systems, such as activated carbon

    • Flares

    • Thermal oxidizers

    • Catalytic converters

    • Biofilters

    • Absorption (scrubbing)

    • Cryogenic condensers

    • Vapor recovery systems

  • Acid Gas/SO2 control

    • Wet scrubbers

    • Dry scrubbers

    • Flue gas desulfurization
