Performance Optimization Strategies for Natural Gas SCR Catalyst


Power producers are increasing the asset utilization of their gas fired Combined Cycle and Simple Cycle units.  Increased load cycling and operating hours brings added challenges to meeting NOx and CO limits.  Simple Gas Catalyst Management strategies can optimize Gas asset performance and decrease the Total Life Cycle costs of the SCR system.

Terry McTernan, Cormetech’s Project Management Director, will present an informative webinar that provides strategies for:

  • Improving SCR efficiency
  • Saving O&M costs by reducing ammonia consumption
  • Increasing power output by lowering catalyst pressure drop
  • Best practices for higher start/stop load cycling on the SCR Catalyst
  • Effective Low load operation
  • Maximizing Gas fleet catalyst utilization

In this webinar you will also learn:

  • Preventive maintenance measures to improve SCR performance
  • Understanding SCR catalyst degradation and poisoning
  • Best practices for catalyst activity sampling
  • Benefits of cleaning vs. refurbishment vs. replacement
