Date of Application: April 2009
Product Used and Millage: Mascoat Industrial-DTI 80 to 100 mils (2-2.5 mm)
Unit/Project/Equipment: Applied to Baghouse from Cogeneration Unit at Riceland Foods
Size: 30' X 30' X 80' tall (9m x 9m x 24m)
Starting Temperatures: Temperatures range from the Inlet 320?F (160?C) to outlet Temperature 170?F (76?C)
Post application results: Temperatures ranged from 100?F (38?C) to 130?F (54?C)
ROI Estimate (If performed): Project was not completed for energy savings as most bag-houses or cyclones are a collection point prior to being moved to another part of the process. The biggest problem is the condensation that is formed due to dew point internally. The moisture creates a huge problem for the customer to get the materials transferred or too much moisture in the product and destroying the internal components, i.e. the bags in the bag-houses.
Savings (If known): The normal savings is that the ceramic coatings applied to these types of projects stabilize the internal conditions and eliminates the heat sinks created by the steel structure.
