Anguil`s engineering expertise has led to numerous successful air pollution control and emission control installations in the automotive manufacturing industry. From painting vehicles to engine test stations and tire manufacturing, we have supplied oxidizers and heat recovery systems to both tier 1 and tier 2 automotive plants.
Environmental regulations for air pollution cotrol at metal decorating and packaging facilities usually address can makers, base coil coaters, or metal parts and packaging manufacturers. Metal Decorating can be classified as any process where metal is formed painted, or coated. Metal Packaging is generally considered processes involved in the production of aluminum cans, light metal containers, closures and components.
The natural gas industry has seen a significant increase in activity with the discovery of new shales located throughout the world. The development of advance drilling technologies allow for extraction of gases deeper in the earth, revolutionizing the industry while creating a new demand for air and water pollution control technologies.
One-time, on-site final destruction of particulates. This is the key benefit gained from an Anguil solution to the emissions generated by the rubber curing process. Other advantages of an Anguil solution include the elimination of visible blue haze, guaranteed destruction efficiency compliance, and the elimination of costly mechanical filtration media and the lingering liability issue associated with filter disposal.
During car manufacturing, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) associated with the paints are emitted to the atmosphere. These are carcinogen, toxic and lead to tropospheric ozone formation. Therefore, VOC emissions must be reduced. With this aim, Chromatotec® airmoVOC C6-C12 (GC-FID analyzer) has been used to monitor VOC emissions from a car painting line. Indeed, it can measure concentrations ranging from very low (ppt) to high (ppm) level, so it is suitable for emission measurements. When coupled to MS...
The chemical process industry has been the Clean Air Group, LLC primary market since the Company’s inception in 1917. Our experience with a multitude of chemicals and processes is the foundation of the Clean Air Group, LLC expertise in wet scrubbing. Clean Air Group, LLC broad experience runs from the treatment or relatively simple acid gases to exotic and severely toxic substances including NaCN, HCN, Phosgene and Arsine.
The manufacture of fiber optics involves the integration of various metal compounds to assist with the refraction of light within the fiber. Production of fiber optics create gaseous and sub-micron particulate emissions that are extremely valuable to recapture. A major fiber optic manufacturer has purchased multiple scrubber systems from the Clean Air Group, LLC to not only meet air emission standards but to capture this valuable product. Not only has the Clean Air Group, LLC APC system reduced the customer’s...
A variety of refining and gas field sweetening scrubbing applications have long been a staple application. The Clean Air Group, LLC has been recognized as a preferred vendor for a leading refinery process licensor for the FCCU regeneration gas effluent clean-up. Here, particulates and HCl and Cl2 corrosive gasses are effectively scrubbed at ultra high temperatures, protecting downstream equipment.
For processes where plastics are molded or extruded (as evidenced by a “hazy” exhaust plume at the stack) scrubbers are used to treat the sub-micron particulates and oil mists generated. Certain other processes (e.g. Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic equipment fabrication) emit VOCs that can be captured with absorption.
Odor control via the use of oxidizing reagents can be effectively accomplished using the Clean Air Group, LLC counter current packed towers. Whether it is H2S, NH3, both or other odorous compounds we have the scrubber technology or absorber technology to satisfy treatment needs.
The wood products industry includes medium density fiberboard (MDF), oriented strand board (OSB) or particleboard plants where wood chips or fibers are treated with various chemicals to produce a wood product. Typically, the flue gas is first treated with a cyclone to knock out large particles and fibers, followed by a scrubber to control acid gases and sub-micron particulate/mist before being treated in an oxidizer of some design where non-condensibles are removed. Our expertise is in cleaning the gas of all...

Paint manufacturing facilities generate large quantities of both hazardous and non-hazardous waste. This waste includes equipment cleaning wastewater and waste solvent, filter cartridges, off-spec paint spills, leftover containers, and pigment dusts from air pollution control equipment.
Grain handling and/or processing operations have the potential to release particulate that can be effectively removed with venturi scrubbers. Fermentation of corn to generate ethanol also releases fugitive emissions that can be scrubbed with counter current packed towers.
Where molded plastic parts or vinyl fabrics are produced, scrubbers are used to capture the sub-micron fumes produced in the heating process. Also, scrubbers are commonly used to treat metal treating off-gases for removal of acid gases and/or fine mists.
The fundamental ingredient in concrete is portland cement. The cement manufacturing process requires a great deal of energy to heat the mixture of raw materials in a cement kiln. The main source of toxic emissions from a portland cement plant is the kiln. The treatment of kiln exhaust is similar to most incinerators processes. Scrubbers are the best choices for control of acid gases, fine particulate, heavy metals as well as dioxin and furans. The MACT II regulations, yet to be finalized, for cement kilns are...
The semi-conductor, circuit board and electronics industry have multiple applications for air pollution control equipment from the control of cleaning solvents and acid gas to the capture of particulate matter.
The chemical industry is answering homeland security and EPA concerns for mass release of toxic, hazardous gasses by employing large stand alone, ever ready Emergency Vent Scrubbers employing integrated multi-stage scrubbing schemes. The Clean Group, LLC has several multimillion dollar EVS systems installed for HCl, Cl2, & TCS.
Waste incineration, such as sewage sludge, municipal solid waste and hazardous waste incineration are areas under particular scrutiny by regulators because of their multiple toxic pollutants. The Clean Air Group, LLC has been selected by several hazardous waste facilities to design and build integrated multiple pollutant air pollution control systems to replace existing scrubber systems to meet the new Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards. In several instances, only a scrubber was required, in...
