            • Cover gasket NBR
          • Double-tube heat exchanger

          • Our WT double-tube heat exchangers are used for heat exchange in biogas and sewage treatment plants. The medium, i.e. the double-tube heat exchanger WT, is uniformly heated by means of an energy-efficient countercurrent process and returned to the process flow. The design and construction is carried out and laid out according to the customer's specifications, which guarantees a cost-effective and effective execution. As can be seen on the following picture, our WT double-tube heat exchanger is completely made of stainless steel. This product is available both with and without insulation.

          • Spray nozzle SU

          • In the operation of digestion tanks, the formation of sludge islands floating on the surface of the digested sludge or the formation of entire floating layers may occur under certain circumstances. The Su ball spray nozzle from EnvironTec can be used to effectively combat the formation of floating layers without a container opening, with the aim of driving the floating layer fragments to the extraction device by means of a water jet. The water jet of the spray nozzle can be freely rotated and swivelled due to the ball joint construction (see illustration).

            Since the work can be observed from the outside through the EnvironTec sight glass at the same time, it is not necessary to open the gas chamber of the reactor. In addition, the SU spherical spray nozzle can be used to combat foam. 

            All metal parts of the SU ball spray nozzle are made of stainless steel, the ball joint is made of suitable, particularly high-quality and durable plastic.

            • can be mounted in gas hoods, manhole covers or with its own insert
            • suitable for reactor roof and outer wall
          • Foam Trap FT

          • During the operation of digestion tanks, foam may form in the gas chamber under certain circumstances (e.g. during mixing processes in the reactor, due to gas injection processes, an unfavourable composition of the digested sludge, temperature influence, etc.). The modern EnvironTec Foam Trap FT can detect the formation of foam in time and effectively prevent the formed foam from penetrating the gas extraction system.

            The body of the foam trap FT is continuously monitored inside by light optics. If the foam formed in the gas chamber rises into the monitored area, the detection and immediate automatic activation of cleaning nozzles takes place. By means of a spray veil, the foam is held down in the foam trap and its penetration into the gas pipe system is prevented.

            The precipitated foam falls directly back into the reactor chamber. The delivery is possible in different equipment variants (basic equipment, semi or fully automatic as well as on request including signal output to control system).

            The EnvironTec foam trap FT is - as shown in the corresponding illustration - completely made of stainless steel 1.4571 and equipped with high-quality components and/or fittings.

          • Side manhole LMH

          • During the construction phase of digester tanks, but also during operation and for conversion work, safe and easy access to the inside of the tank must be ensured. For this purpose, it is necessary to manage the lateral entry and exit for persons, but also the entry and exit of material and equipment.

            The lateral manhole LMH from EnvironTec guarantees an easy and fast opening and closing of the manhole cover by means of a spindle lock and an additional sealing of the inward opening construction by the liquid pressure. Due to the inward curvature, no sludge particles or other solids are deposited on the lateral manhole LMH.

          Worldwide, professional and appropriate gas treatment is not only an important task in the field of environmental technology, it is also characterized by numerous challenges that have to be overcome with suitable components. For this purpose, our company provides a wide range of products that have already proven themselves many times over internationally.

            • Aktivkohlefilter ACF

            • Biogas consists mainly of methane and carbon dioxide. However, depending on the substrate used for gas production, high concentrations of impurities such as H2S, siloxanes, other organic impurities or particles may occur. These in turn can cause irreversible damage to gas engines or gas treatment plants. Conventional gas cleaning systems such as scrubbers or filters can only remove such impurities - especially H2S and siloxanes - to a limited extent.

              EnvironTec's ACF activated carbon filter - shown in the figure below - can cost-effectively reduce these contaminants to a level that is guaranteed harmless, resulting in lower operating costs and longer life for gas engines and other plant components. EnvironTec's ACF activated carbon filter with its unique tripod configuration is used to remove H2S and siloxanes. The special design of the gas inlet results in an even distribution of the gas flow, resulting in a longer lifetime of the coal charge and a significant reduction in operating costs compared to conventional products on the market.

              The conical bottom of the ACF activated carbon filter, with its large valve, allows the spent activated carbon to be emptied comfortably, while the large manhole in the ceiling, which can be opened easily, allows easy refilling.

              Applications and equipment

            • Sediment pot ST

            • In the process control of digester gas equipment can lead only to the formation of condensate water and for discharging foam particles and other solids from the reactors in the pipes. In extreme cases, deposits can form / blockages that can cause excessive pressure losses or other damages in the piping system.

              In EnvironTec sediment cup condensed water and sediment particles are separated and collected. Sediment pots are usually installed directly into the pipeline, but can also be flanged pipe below the low points. The gas and the condensed water with the sediment particles is rotated by the inlet nozzle in a rotational movement.

              The heavy particles and the water collect on the vessel wall and are collected at the container bottom. The removal is done manually using a ball valve or via a siphon.
              flush ports, level indicator and sight glass are optionally available.
              Delivery is possible in different sizes and types. EnvironTec sediment pots are made ​​of stainless steel 1.4571 (1.4301 substructure).
            • Condensate pot CP

            • Biogas or sewage gas is water vapour saturated gas. Typically, the formation of condensate water occurs in digester gas plants and their piping systems due to the influence of temperature. Condensate in the pipeline parts can lead to blockages at low points, deposits, corrosion and the like.

              The EnvironTec condensate separator for low-point drainage effectively and safely collects and removes condensed water in the pipeline system. The CP condensate collector is usually installed directly in the pipeline, but can also be flange-mounted below pipeline low points. The condensed water collects on the tank walls or on the partition wall and is collected at the tank bottom. The water is discharged manually by means of a ball valve or automatically by means of an automatic siphon or condensate separator. Level indicator or sight glass are optionally available.
              The CP condensate drain pot can be supplied in various sizes and equipment variants (basic equipment, semi-automatic or fully automatic).

            • Gravel Filter GF

            • Biogas aus Faulbehältern bzw. Biogasreaktoren ist wassergesättigt sowie teilweise mit Schmutzpartikeln beladen. Zusätzlich kann es zum Eindringen von Schaum in das Rohrleitungssystem kommen. Der Kiesfilter GF von EnvironTec stellt eine einfache Grobreinigung des Biogases sicher. Das Gas strömt dabei durch eine Kiesfilterschicht, dabei werden Schmutz, Schaum und Kondensattropfen abgeschieden. Die Reinigung des Kieses bei normaler Verschmutzung kann mittels Wassereinspritzen durch die Reinigungsdüsen bzw. Freispülen erfolgen, ohne dass der Filter geöffnet werden muss.

              EnvironTec bietet den Kiesfilter GF für verschiedene Volumenströme und Drücke an. Der Kiesfilter kann optional mit einem Kiesentnahmeflansch sowie Differenzdruckmessung ausgestattet werden. Im Folgenden sehen Sie eine Darstellung der EnvironTec-Kiesfilter, die komplett aus Edelstahl 1.4571 gefertigt werden.

              Die Eigenschaften des Kiesfilters GF im Überblick:

              • Abscheidung von Grobpartikeln und Schaum aus Biogas und Klärgas
              • Kondensatabscheidung

              • Herstellung in Edelstahl 1.4571
              • Zusatzausstattung optional
            • Ceramic microfilter FF

            • Fine filters such as the ceramic fine filter FF from EnvironTec are used for the fine purification of sewage gas or biogas. This allows fine particles ≥ 8 µm, but also condensate mist, to be separated, so that a gas that is largely free of foreign substances is available for further gas utilisation. The EnvironTec FF ceramic fine filters (see illustration) are equipped with filter cartridges made of pantel (special chamotte). The gas flows through the filter cartridges from the outside to the inside, while the impurities are separated on the outer wall. The filter material used is chemically resistant or neutral, has a high filter performance with low pressure loss and is easy to clean with a high-pressure cleaner.

              Possible condensate can be discharged by means of an optional syphon or condensate separator. On request, the ceramic fine filters FF can be equipped with differential pressure measurement (U-tube or individual pressure gauges) and water level indicator. The EnvironTec ceramic fine filter FF are completely made of stainless steel 1.4571.

              • Separation of the finest ingredients and moisture from biogas/sewage gas
              • Fine cleaning of the gas e.g. directly in front of gas engines

              • optionally available with differential pressure measurement
              • Water level indicator and condensate drain
            • Gas refrigerant dryer GC

            • Biogas, sewage gas and landfill gas always contain saturated water vapour. During combustion, the water vapour causes corrosion damage to the gas engines and turbines. Malfunctions caused by these damages lead to considerable downtimes and high repair costs. By using gas drying, as with the gas refrigerant dryer GC from EnvironTec, the service life of the engines can be considerably extended and the maintenance costs noticeably reduced.

              The condensation of the water vapour in the gas takes place in the gas refrigerant dryer GC by lowering the temperature and thus leads to dehumidification. The condensate is separated in a trap downstream of the cooling system and discharged via a siphon. The dehumidification also increases the efficiency.

              The EnvironTec gas drying process using the GC gas refrigerant dryer, which is presented in the following diagram, is a cost-effective solution. The gas drying modules can be supplied for the capacity ranges from 100 to 6000 Nm³/h gas throughput. Special designs are also available on request.

              Further applications are arrangements in combination with reheating upstream of activated carbon filters and feeding into a gas pipeline to avoid re-condensation. To save energy, the gas refrigerant dryer GC can be extended with an additional module consisting of an air cooler and a tube exchanger.

              AREAS OF USE

              • Municipal or industrial sewage treatment plants
              • Chemical industry
              • paper industry
              • dumps
              • food industry
              • farming

              DESIGN PARAMETERS

              • Gas throughput from: 100-6.000m³/h
              • Gas temperature at inlet: max. 105° C
              • Gas temperature at outlet: min. 3-5° C
              • Gas pressure at inlet: -100 to + 500 mbar
              • Ambient temperature: - 20 to + 45° C
            • Biological gas cleaning

            • Biogas and landfill gas always contain a proportion of hydrogen sulphide (H2S). This is usually in the range of 1000 to 6000 ppm, but can also reach two percent by volume or more. Often this H2S has to be removed from the gas, either for environmental reasons or due to a risk of corrosion. EnvironTec's desulfurization process in the form of biological gas purification (see illustration) is a cost-effective yet highly efficient solution.

              As already mentioned, this is a biological process that requires no chemicals and virtually no consumables. If a limited amount of air (approx. 10 to 15 % air) is added to the gas throughput, special bacteria (e.g. Thiobacillus) convert the H2S into elemental sulphur and sulphuric acid during biological gas purification.

              The bacteria only need

              • Oxygen
              • Nutrients and trace elements (NPK886)
              • growth areas

              Oxygen is added in the form of compressed air. The automatic control regulates the amount of air according to the respective demand, which correlates with the amount of gas.

          • High-quality biogas storage facilities from the global player EnvironTec

            As an international player in the field of environmental technology with worldwide export activities, for example to Turkey, Sweden or South America, our company has various gas storage variants in its range, for example biogas storage facilities, in order to be able to supply a tailor-made solution for every order.

              • Gas storage TG / TGZ

              • Environtec has two pressureless gas storage systems, which differ in principle in the type of enclosure construction. The model TG gas storage tank consists of a galvanized sectional steel construction which is clad with trapezoidal sheet metal. The model TGZ gas storage tank consists of a prefabricated metal silo made of galvanized corrugated sheet steel segments with lateral stiffening profiles and a conical roof. The storage membrane consists of high-quality, leak-tested and UV-resistant special plastic. It is fungicide-inhibiting and flame-retardant according to DIN 4102 B1. The membrane is completely self-contained, free-standing in the container and therefore has no steel parts in direct gas contact.

                It is fastened or equipped with a connecting flange made of stainless steel (material no. 1.4571) at the cone tip of the housing of the gas storage tank (see illustration) and at the bottom of the gas bag. A floor protection mat is applied to the concrete foundation to protect the storage membrane. The gas tanks are equipped with a hydraulic overpressure or underpressure safety device and a mechanical overpressure valve as well as an optical level indicator and underpressure monitoring.

                • Pressureless gas storage of sewage biodeposits or special gases according to ÖWAV regulation sheet 30.
                • robust housing in galvanized steel with accessories
                • short assembly time
                • optionally with powder coating or trapezoidal sheet cladding
                • hydraulic and mechanical overpressure and underpressure protection
                • optical level indicator with optional 4-20Ma signal
                • optional with gas compressor station & UPS system
                • optionally with gas warning system
                • optional with pre-shaft equipment

                Applications and equipment

                • Tank sizes from 10 to 6,000 m³
                • Operating overpressure approx. 1-2 MBAR
                • Ambient temperature -30°C to + 50°C
                • max. permitted gas temperature +50°C
                • max. permissible operating pressure +5 MBAR
                • max. permissible operating vacuum -2.5 MBAR
                • max. permitted roof snow load 120KG/m² for TG, 75 KG/m² for TGZ (higher snow loads on request)
              • Double membrane gas holder DM

              • The outer membrane forms the actual protective construction and is always under an overpressure necessary for the statics. The processes inside the accumulator can be observed at any time through a viewing window built into the outer membrane. The actual usable accumulator is the inner membrane, which is a double membrane accumulator. This diaphragm moves depending upon filling degree upward or downward. With the gas accumulator with foundation plate the soil diaphragm seals the accumulator space opposite the concrete foundation. The membranes are attached to the foundation with the aid of the anchoring ring.

                Each double diaphragm accumulator is calculated individually with regard to the loads (internal pressure, wind and snow loads). As a result, membranes with high tensile strength are selected. According to DIN 4102 B1, the PVC-coated membranes are flame-retardant, fungicidal and have increased UV protection. In order to protect the membranes from the substances contained in the biogas (CH4, CO2, H2S etc.), the inner and bottom membranes have a special coating.

                The supporting air blower provides the necessary pressure for the gas accumulator to absorb the external forces such as snow and wind load and to generate the initial pressure on the gas system. A separate air hose connects the blower with the double diaphragm accumulator, which is presented in the following figure. The non-return valve prevents the air from escaping if the blower fails.

                For safety reasons, a pressure regulating valve is built into the air system. This valve regulates the operating pressure and closes automatically in the event of a minimum required overpressure (static stability, fan failure) in the outer diaphragm. This device ensures that the accumulator remains stable when gas production is present. The fill level measurement enables an optimal utilization of the storage volume and control of the downstream devices (e.g. flare, motor, burner, etc.).

                • Double membrane gas container for the storage of sewage gas and biogas according to ÖWAV regulation sheet 30.

                • Manual gas flare FA I

                • When operating biogas plants, it may happen that more gas is produced than can be used. To prevent unburned gases from entering the atmosphere, they are burned using a gas flare. The operation of the manual gas flare FA I, a biogas flare, starts by first opening the manual flap. The gas can now flow through the pipe and mix with the combustion air in the flame tube. The start button on the control box ignites the gas, and closing the manual flap terminates the process. Before ordering, it may be necessary to check local and legal requirements to see whether it is possible to use a manual FA I gas flare on the biogas plant.

                  The manually operated biogas flare FA I is designed as a simple, manual gas flare for emergency flaring of biogas and is supplied without flame monitoring and automatic control.

                  As shown in the figure, the EnvironTec FA I biogas flares are made entirely of stainless steel 1.4571 and equipped with high-quality components and fittings. When selecting the individual components used, special attention is paid to robustness, durability over many years and low maintenance.

                  • open combustion
                  • manual control and ignition
                  • manual flap with DVGW certificate
                  • Flame arrester with ATEX certificate
                  • Rope tensioning incl. tensioning device, anchor
                  • Made in Austria

                  Applications and equipment

                  • Condensate collection/separation in piping systems of digester gas plants
                  • body in stainless steel 1.4571, substructure 1.4301
                  • Condensate discharge manually or by means of siphon or separator pot
                • Gas flare FA II

                • In the operation of biogas plants or sewage treatment plants it may be necessary - e.g. due to the start-up phase as well as repairs or consumer accidents - to burn excess gas safely. The EnvironTec FA II gas torch series provides the operator with an automatically functioning, safe and low-emission gas torch. Due to its robust and functional design, the FA II biogas and sewage gas flare primarily guarantees a long service life, low maintenance and constant availability.

                  The FA II biogas and sewage gas flare works fully automatically, i.e. after receipt of the start or stop signal, the corresponding fittings are automatically opened by the control system (Siemens SPS) and the ignition process is initiated at the same time. The flame is continuously monitored by a UV sensor. The respective standby or operating status is indicated on the switch cabinet by means of control lamps and reported to the central control system. As standard, the FA II biogas and sewage gas torch is equipped with a plastic switch cabinet (IP54) with integrated Siemens PLC control.

                  Alternatively, an automatic firing system can also be used. Gas combustion is carried out by diffusion burners as standard, but can also be equipped with an injector burner as required. The FA II biogas and sewage gas torch can be equipped with additional accessories such as pressure control, pilot burner system, electric armature heating or temperature monitoring on request or if required in accordance with the respective requirements. The FA II biogas flares from EnvironTec are - as shown in the following illustration - made entirely of stainless steel and are equipped with high-quality components and fittings.
