Block Lecture Description
“Off-gas Purification is an integrated lecture. The students learn how to
‐ Specify off-gas purification problems
‐ Identify technologies and technology combinations
‐ how to design equipment for off-gas purification and
‐ how to estimate the purification efficiency.

After having participated the Off-gas Purification class the students will be able to:
‐ Identify and to specify off-gas problems
‐ Select appropriate technologies and technology combinations
‐ Design equipment
‐ Estimate the performance

A textbook will be prepared and provided (pdf-version)
The students will also get the power point presentations.
The students need an appropriate hand calculator

Since this is an integrated class experience recommends the following procedure:
‐ Discussion of basics
‐ Practical class
‐ Exam of the topic the day after
Additional services: Final exam (in case of necessity)


A) Specifications
Particulate and gaseous pollutants, their origin and their physical and chemical properties
Emission-Transmission-Immission; Pollutant dispersion (Gauss Plume Model)

B) Basics
Basics of the gaseous state, humidification, dew points

C) Boundaries
Legislative framework

D) Off-gas purification engineering
Technologies, techniques, design and performance
1) Particulate Pollutants
    ‐ Properties, characterization and classification
    ‐ Driving force and precipitation efficiency
    ‐ Coarse particulate matter;
      o design of a cyclone/multiclone
    ‐ Fine particulate matter
      o Design of electrostatic precipitators
      o Design of filter bag houses
      o Design of venturi scrubbers
2) Gaseous Pollutants
    ‐ SOx, NOx, VOCs
      o Design of scrubbers (absorption equipment)
      o Design of adsorption equipment
      o Design of reactors
      o Design of combustion facilities
