Siloxanes are chemicals used extensively in industrial products such as lubricants and in personal care products. Nearly all digester and landfill gas contains one or more species of siloxanes. When biogas containing siloxanes is combusted in gas turbines, boilers, fuel cells, or internal combustion engines, deposits of solid silica (SiO2) collect within the equipment. Damage inflicted by siloxane deposits can be profound, causing more frequent maintenance and lower generation capacity. Due to increasing issues caused by siloxanes many of our systems include integrated siloxane removal systems.
Because each source of biogas is unique, we have a variety of medias available to remove siloxane compounds. Our in house experts will evaluate your biogas chemistry and choose the optimum media for your specific location.
Unison Solutions offers vessel design and custom fabrication services. We are a certified ASME manufacturing shop in compliance with the ASME Section VIII, Division 1 Code using authorized inspectors. We specialize in stainless steel fabrication and offer vessels up to 12′ in diameter.
