ClearStak Pollution Control Device & Intelligent Biofuel Controller



ClearStak’s Pollution Control Device (PCD) is composed of a short section of stack, a catalytic converter, a thermocouple, a catalyst heater, and an optional oxygen or lambda sensor. The catalyst provides a reactive surface that all emissions must come in contact with before exiting a stack, effectively reducing the release of carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic carbons (VOCs), and particulate matter (PM). Many catalysts rely on the heat of the fire to maintain an effective temperature, and for this reason they are often ineffective during start up. BioMass Controls' Intelligent Biofuel Controller (IBC) was developed to pre-heat the catalyst to prevent it from falling below its activation temperature. By ensuring this temperature is maintained before combustion is initiated, the IBC further prevents smoke during start-up and catalyst clogging. Furthermore, optional oxygen sensors can be utilized to maintain high combustion efficiency through the optimization of air-to-fuel ratios.
