Services for emission control

Valmet’s service offering is designed to match your specific need, whether it’s enhanced the plant availability or environmental performance or both. Depending on the need, the service solution can be provided as a one-time delivery or as a longer-term partnership through service agreements. By working together, we can ensure maximized reliability and optimized performance of the production process.

Services for electrostatic precipitators

Valmet offers extensive services for energy and pulp customers with vast experience and expertise in ESP technology for many processes, e.g., recovery boilers, power boilers, waste-to-energy boilers and lime kiln processes. Valmet is able to offer services for any manufacturer’s ESP.

We are a forerunner in delivering ESPs with a Distributed Control System (DCS) based monitoring and controlling application. It features a full remote-mode capability to support the customers’ process optimization, emission monitoring, energy efficiency and maintenance anticipation targets.

You can get a complete ESP delivery installation from Valmet. We also offer ESP modernization projects as well as services to promote sustainability and fulfil emission legislation requirements.



Inspections for electrostatic precipitators

A properly designed and constructed Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) has a lifespan of several decades. However, deviations from optimal circumstances do occur and may cause wear or corrosion in the ESP parts, and all electrical components have a limited lifespan. Our inspection services ensures that your ESP and its auxiliaries will function in the best possible way now and in the future.
