Mott offers gas process filters for filtration of high-temperature gasification processes. Companies that generate energy from hot gas rely on filter elements designed with Mott porous metal to improve the longevity of their filters and reduce maintenance costs – simply because porous metal can withstand temperatures up to 1700° Fahrenheit.  Mott GSV filters also simplify operations because they enable on-line cleaning, meaning that while the filter operates, elements are cleaned in sections through a gas-assisted pulse, so there’s no need to take the filter offline for maintenance.

Enhancing Gasification with Superior Filter Technology

Gasification is a process that converts organic or fossil-based carbonaceous materials into carbon monoxide, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide at high temperatures without combustion. This technology is crucial for producing clean energy from various types of waste and biomass, offering a sustainable alternative to traditional energy sources. Mott Corporation plays a pivotal role in this field by providing high-quality filters that are essential for the filtration of gases produced during gasification. Their filters are designed to withstand extreme temperatures, up to 1700° Fahrenheit, ensuring durability and reducing maintenance costs. Mott’s expertise in manufacturing porous metal filters allows for optimal performance in high-temperature gasification processes, making them a leader in the industry for energy companies looking to maximize efficiency and sustainability.

FAQs: Gasification

Q: What is gasification and how does it work?

A: Gasification is a process that converts organic or fossil fuel-based materials into syngas, a mixture of hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide, through reaction at high temperatures with a controlled amount of oxygen and/or steam. Unlike combustion, gasification does not burn the materials, but rather transforms them into a versatile and clean energy source.

Q: Why is gasification considered an important technology?

A: Gasification is important because it offers a way to efficiently convert various types of waste materials into usable energy, reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and contributing to waste management. It also produces fewer pollutants compared to conventional combustion processes, making it a more environmentally friendly option for energy production.

Q: What types of materials can be used in the gasification process?

A: A wide range of materials can be used in gasification, including coal, biomass, municipal solid waste, and even certain types of industrial waste. The versatility of the process allows for the utilization of resources that would otherwise be considered waste.

Q: How does Mott Corporation support the gasification industry?

A: Mott Corporation supports the gasification industry by providing high-performance filtration components that are essential for the purification of syngas. Their filters are designed to withstand the high temperatures and corrosive environments typical of gasification processes, ensuring reliability and efficiency.

Q: What makes Mott Corporation’s filters suitable for high-temperature gasification processes?

A: Mott Corporation’s filters are suitable for high-temperature gasification processes due to their robust construction with porous metal that can endure temperatures up to 1700° Fahrenheit. This durability allows for continuous operation and on-line cleaning, which reduces maintenance downtime and costs.

Q: Can Mott Corporation customize filters for specific gasification applications?

A: Yes, Mott Corporation can customize filters to meet the specific needs of various gasification applications. They work closely with clients to tailor porosity, materials, and design to optimize performance for individual systems.
