Mercury Control Resource - Dynamic Mercury Capture Test

 Dynamic Mercury Capture Test

ADA Carbon Solutions has implemented a new tool to advance the accuracy and relevance of Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC) laboratory screening.  The results are excellent for a higher level of batch quality control, accurate comparisons between sorbents, and more-realistic simulation of full-scale injection environments.  This tool enables us to rapidly prototype new sorbents, and scale up the results more quickly, both minimizing field issues and reducing the time to solve field problems.  It correlates well with full-scale mercury capture, unlike many of the standard specifications used to describe PACs.  We introduced the Dynamic Mercury Capture test to the industry at the EUEC in conjunction with Nick Lentz of University of North Dakota.
