Air Pollution Control Technology Series Training Tool

What is it?

The Control Technology Series is a self instructional training tool. The training tool is designed to provide a basic overview to those unfamiliar with a variety of air pollution control technologies. The series is broken down into different types of equipment such as:

  • wet scrubbers
  • carbon absorption
  • incineration
  • condensation
  • electrostatic precipiators.

Some of the topics covered in the modules are:

  • What the different types of devices are:
  • How they work
  • How to tell if they are working correctly
  • Causes of decreased performance
  • Performance monitoring

Although this training tool is not intended as complete training in the inspection of these devices, it will provide a basic understanding of the different types of devices used. This series is available on CD, videotape (for some technologies) and as a downloadable zip file from the web.

The current series consists of the following topics:

  • Electrostatic Precipitators (mactcd2.zip)
  • Incineration (mactcd2.zip)
  • Carbon Adsorption (mactcd1.zip)
  • Wet Scrubbers (mactcd2.zip
  • Condensation (mactcd1.zip)
  • Absorbers (mactcd1.zip)
