  1. Meeting Pollution Control Compliance Through System Design & Engineering

    Leave a Comment

    Anguil’s pollution control technologies have been used for cleaner air, water, and energy in a wide range of manufacturing applications across almost every industry. The need to comply with pollution control regulations goes beyond ESG (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance), as non-compliance with pollution control regulations can be extremely costly for businesses from many aspects.

    The use of the proper pollution control technologies can lead to smaller overall production costs through energy-efficient design and reliable construction practices. Solutions from Anguil can lead to a dramatic reduction in costs as well as seamless integration through our expertise in system design and engineering.

    Your Business, Your Process

    Our designs combine widely used products with innovative, custom-engineered solutions. We aim to work closely with you to tailor our systems to your unique business needs. Ultimately, this means our systems can help you reduce overall costs, minimize non-compliance issues, and decrease your environmental footprint.

    We employ a team of skilled engineers from a wide cross-section of disciplines, including mechanical, structural, environmental, and electrical engineering. This diversity allows us to deliver a tailored service whereby we can address a wide range of process needs.

    Reliability of Design

    It is extremely important to clients that our pollution control technology system designs are at the highest standard, and operational in a timely fashion. Throughout our system design, we use a gate process that allows us to ensure that each stage meets full quality control requirements before proceeding.

    This allows us to ensure that our system design and engineering leads to maximum customer satisfaction from engineering through to commissioning. Our quality assurance team consistently monitors our processes to ensure we are meeting our core values of continuous improvement and enhanced customer experience.

    Examples of Anguil’s System Design and Engineering in Practice

    In recent times, the Chinese government has been increasing the restrictive nature of environmental protection regulations. In Shanxi Province, China, a mining company wanted to adopt a new technology to convert ventilation air methane (VAM) into usable energy. Anguil’s system design and engineering expertise was used to recommend the Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) technology which destroys emissions while using waste heat to generate energy. Anguil’s system design and engineering of the RTO also means that no auxiliary energy is necessary for combustion as long as minimal methane concentrations are maintained.

    Anguil’s expertise in system design and engineering allowed us to work with a coil coating facility to generate steam and savings using waste heat. The facility wanted to minimize their exhaust air temperature and operating costs using an RTO.

    The customer was able to utilize a large airflow and high exhaust temperature to create energy recovery measures and optimize processes while minimizing operating expenses. As the process needs a lot of steam this would provide a much-needed resource via energy recovery. Anguil installed an air-to-steam waste heat recovery boiler to recover exhaust waste heat from the natural gas-fired thermal oxidizer and created 25 psig of steam. This system design and engineering expertise led to the facility saving $216,770 per year, paying for itself within six months.

  2. Soil Remediation at Superfund Sites across the USA

    Severe soil contamination is a major cause for concern that can have a harmful impact on human health. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates the levels of pollution in soils to protect the environment and reduce the likelihood that people will come into contact with harmful contaminants. Sites that are severely polluted can be remediated using a choice of pollution control technologies, and the EPA rigorously enforces the need for soil remediation as part of the Superfund program.

  3. Key Challenges in Industrial Wastewater Treatment

    Leave a Comment
    Many industrial processes produce wastewater discharge that can be difficult to manage due to pollutant volume, composition, and variability. It is critical to assess the physical and chemical characteristics of the effluent to determine a cost-effective and efficient process for industrial wastewater treatment.
