New generation of electrostatic precipitator technologyBestseller celebrates 25th birthday
The Scheuch electrostatic precipitator which was in use until recently is 25 years old and has been sold more than 1,200 times. This is certainly a reason to celebrate – and the occasion also marks the start of the next generation of Scheuch electrostatic precipitators. In early 2018, a company-wide project group was formed with the aim of developing a new generation of electrostatic precipitators within a very short space of time. By the end of 2018, the first prototype had already been built and tested in the in-house Scheuch Test Lab under conditions which were as realistic as possible. Once the tests had been completed successfully, the new-generation electrostatic precipitator – which has been specially developed for boiler outputs between three and twelve megawatts – entered into series production.
WIEHAG, a company based in Altheim, Upper Austria, is the proud owner of the first of Scheuch’s next-generation electrostatic precipitators. For 170 years, this specialist in timber construction has been using its climate-friendly flagship projects to demonstrate that it is possible to operate in an ecologically and socially minded way while also achieving financial success. At the end of October 2018, WIEHAG started to build a new boiler plant at its Altheim site and chose to put its trust in Scheuch’s expertise. The Scheuch electrostatic precipitator was commissioned in May 2019 and has been running perfectly ever since.Back to overview
