Universal Silencer Provides Turnkey Emissions System to Chilean Mine

Posted on February 27, 2009

Universal Silencer has provided a complete turnkey Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system to a remote Chilean copper mine. The mine’s 90 000 kW stand-by power plant required seventy-two SCR units to reduce Nitrous Oxide (NOx) emissions by 88%. Nitrous Oxide is a diesel exhaust byproduct that is strictly controlled by the Chilean Government.

Universal Silencer personnel designed, manufactured, shipped and supervised installation of the SCR system on the diesel generators. The project was a global undertaking; systems specification was led by Universal Silencer’s United Kingdom commercial office, design work completed at the Universal Silencer headquarters in Stoughton, Wisconsin, U.S.A. and manufacturing performed by Universal Silencer’s plant in San Lois Potosi, Mexico.
