Steam boiler’s smog-filtering technology being tested www.montsame.mn
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ A parliamentary working group on reducing air pollution yesterday worked at the 102nd secondary school of Bayanzurkh district.The school receives its heat from a steam boiler and it locates in high-smog area. Therefore, an electric device that purifies smog produced by the steam boiler was installed and started being tested from last August. The device was invented by U.S.-China joint ‘Demistra’ LLC and the work to test the device is being carried out by Mongolia-Korean Monkutroamin LLC.
The device is widely used in China and has capacity to purify gas such as sulphur, nitrogen and carbon which come from steam boiler at 95 percent. By putting smog and chemical solution into chemical reaction, it purifies smog and raises in the air making it wet steam. “The device is suitable for our country’s climate and it is possible to produce the device domestically” said B.Tumurchuluun, head of secretariat of the National Committee on Water Pollution.
If the test shows positive results the device is planned to be installed in some 3000 stream boilers in the capital city as well as steam boilers in rural areas.
