Project Description:


SEI was contracted by Longview Power to expand the existing fabric filter on Longview’s Unit 1 700 MW boiler.  The existing fabric filter was experiencing high pressure drops and short bag life and was impacting the plant’s ability to operate at full capacity.  SEI’s solution was to add six (6) new fabric filter compartments in parallel with the existing twelve (12) compartments.


In addition to the new fabric filter compartments, SEI was contracted to replace all of the existing bags and cages.  Construction of the new compartments could be performed with the unit operating, with only a tie-in outage required.  The existing bags and cages would be replaced during this outage.
