Johnson Matthey SCR System Sales Reach Sales Milestone

Johnson Matthey’s Stationary Emissions Control (SEC) group reports that sales of its Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems, which use their own proprietary urea (or aqueous ammonia) injection control systems, have exceeded 3.4 gigawatts (GW) of stationary engine power for applications worldwide. Johnson Matthey has sold its SCR systems for engines ranging in size from a few hundred KW to 20+ MW. In addition, these engines have been fueled by ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD), natural gas, propane, digester gas, landfill gas, dual fuel, blended fuel, Biodiesel or heavy fuel oil (HFO).

MurCal Named as Johnson Matthey SEC Distributor

Johnson Matthey’s Stationary Emissions Control (SEC) group announced the appointment of MurCal , Palmdale, California, as a distributor of Johnson Matthey 3-Way catalyst elements and housings for stationary diesel and gas engines. Steve Clark, Johnson Matthey Sales Manager Systems, said, “MurCal is the premier West Coast distributor of emission control and engine monitoring systems and has a long-standing reputation with its customers as a one-stop shop. Clark said MurCal provides high quality catalytic products and services to stationary engine owners, users and engine fleet service managers.

Johnson Matthey Catalyst Selectively Reduces CO Emissions

“Compliance with both RICE NESHAP and Opacity Limits is now possible with this catalyst that selectively oxidizes CO, but not NO. Precious metal catalysts are widely used in HAPs converters to reduce CO emissions from IC engines in order to comply with the EPA’s RICE NESHAP regulation. Platinum catalysts also convert the nitric oxide (NO) in the engine exhaust to nitrogen dioxide (NO2), which under certain conditions can produce a visible plume and cause an opacity problem. To solve this dilemma…

Johnson Matthey Appoint PICA Emission Control Equipment Distributor

Johnson Matthey’s Stationary Emissions Control (SEC) say they have appointed Power Ignition and Controls Appalachia (PICA), an Equipment & Controls Inc. company based in Monesson, PA, as a distributor of its emissions control equipment, including catalytic converters, SCR systems and oxidation catalysts for gas and diesel engines. Johnson Matthey explain that PICA’s parent company has been servicing the oil and gas industries for over 60 years, and established PICA in 2011 to…

Johnson Matthey’s New Engines for Tier 4 Compliance

To meet the emission limits for of the EPA’s New Source Performance Standards, new engines will come from the factory with low NOx, PM, CO and HC emissions. For existing engines, Johnson Matthey introduces a Tier 4 solution with its compact and efficient integrated SCRT (Selective Continuously Regenerating Technology) system combining its CRT diesel particulate filter (DPF) and SCR technology making it the best available retrofit technology on the market today. Recognizing the need for a compact retrofit design capable of fitting into small spaces…

New Concat GT SCR Catalyst Reduces Emissions

New, More Compact, Concattm GT SCR Catalyst Reduces up to 95% of NOx Emissions from Gas Turbines. Latest technology from Johnson Matthey suitable for new or retrofit applications. Now available from Johnson Matthey’s Stationary Emissions Control (SEC) group is the new, more compact extruded ceramic Concat GT SCR catalyst specifically designed for gas turbines. The compact Concat GT SCR catalyst provides a honeycomb structure that gives high performance NOx reduction—up to 95%--with less catalyst required.
