If you work in the sewage treatment industry, you’ll be aware of the process of thermal hydrolysis, where heat is used to break apart chain molecules that form hemicellulose and cellulose to obtain the molecules’ constituent parts. The technology that makes thermal hydrolysis possible enables you to generate energy using certain industrial wastes, such as cellulosic biomass. However, unless you’re using the most advanced, reliable and economical heat exchangers and processing solutions for sewage treatment, your operating costs may be unnecessarily high. And, by upgrading your equipment, you could make your process more straightforward while improving the quality of your services.
When you need to break apart cellulose and hemicellulose into sugars, you have three techniques to choose from: enzymatic, dilute acid and thermal treatment. Enzymatic treatments can prove effective, but they’re usually rather expensive. Dilute acid treatments can be equally as effective, but they require the use of costly materials and can harm the environment. Thermal hydrolysis, on the other hand, uses high temperatures to achieve the same effect. A combination of thermal hydrolysis with steam depressurisation is the most effective, affordable and environmentally friendly way to break apart the molecules that make up cellulose and hemicellulose into useful sugars. So, where can you find heat exchangers and processing solutions for sewage treatment?
