Phillips & Temro Completes the Installation and Testing of Their Largest Combination Silencer/Catalytic Converter

PRIOR LAKE, Minn., Sept. 7 / / -- Phillips & Temro Industries and Compressor Systems, Inc. announced that they have successfully completed the installation and testing of the largest combination silencer/catalytic converter in their corporate history. The system, custom designed for the Piedmont Natural Gas Company's newest reserve plant, met and exceeded regulations for both emissions control and noise pollution control in consideration of the surrounding community in which the plant was located.

The three Silencer/Catalytic Converters were custom designed for Caterpillar 3616 natural gas engines rated at 4,735 HP each. CSI (Midland, TX) came to PTI with this challenging opportunity to design and manufacture high performance silencers with integrated emissions catalysts.

The custom "hospital grade" combination silencer/catalytic converters were installed with custom features such as ground level maintenance access ports with heat shields to enhance employee safety in both working with the equipment and maintaining it. This project, considering the scale and size was a challenge to the Philips & Temro Designers. "I'm very proud of our design team and the solution that was created," said Brian Berg, VP of Sales and Business Development, Silencer & Emission Control Products Division. Berg continued; "the fact that we were able to achieve a 93% reduction in carbon monoxide emissions and a 75% reduction in formaldehyde can be attributed solely to the technical leadership that we have here at Phillips & Temro. Our key advantage in the marketplace is that we have a team of technology experts with core competencies in Acoustical Engineering together with Emissions Control Chemical Engineering. Together, this forms a winning combination of technologies that are required in today's large industrial engine environment."

Phillips & Temro was able to design the new system to standard engineering specs and will be able to replicate this system at other facilities of this scope and size when needed. All design, engineering, manufacturing and testing was performed entirely on site at their Prior Lake, MN location, prior to being shipped to the customer's site.
