MEGTEC’s experience and application know-how are at your command for tough drying and web handling applications such as slow-drying coatings and materials or thin film coating and laminating. Dryers can be equipped with a wide variety of nozzle configurations ranging from simple slot nozzles to sophisticated Coanda-style air bars and patented air foil systems. A full range of heat sources are available including steam, direct and indirect gas-fired, thermal oil, electric, hot water and IR. In addition, the air handling systems can be integrated into the dryer enclosure or stand-alone for remote installation.
When the process requires pollution control systems for solvent-based applications, MEGTEC also offers regenerative thermal oxidizers, solvent recovery, distillation and purification systems. MEGTEC also offers waste heat recovery packages to “close the energy loop” between pollution controls and the process, in order to reduce production costs and increase customer profits
Many industrial and pharmaceutical processes generate wastewater with volatile contaminants that increase the COD and BOD to a point where discharging to municipal wastewater is very costly or not an option. These contaminants can be removed from the water by distillation, substantially lowering the disposal cost, and, in many cases, the removed components can be further purified and reused in the process.
MEGTEC offers the following solutions to remove the volatile contaminants and make wastewater suitable for discharge to most municipal wastewater treatment plants:
Stripping columns using direct steam or a reboiler
Distillation columns using indirect steam heat sources
Our technologies have been applied to a range of processes including wastewater treatment from industries such as Pharmaceutical, Semiconductor, Chemical and Petrochemical.
We can treat the air streams from waste management plants, MBT (Mechanical Biological Treatment) reception and composting areas, Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP), Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Plants, gasification of waste, syngas, torrefaction, gas engines and biogas upgrading.
In waste management plants and WWTP, we remove the odors that may be causing a nuisance to neighbors, with bioreactors using Biomass to degrade odorous components and where odors are particularly intractable or VOC emissions higher, thermal oxidizers to meet prescribed emission limits and odor levels.
In RDF Plants, Syngas, Gasification, Gas Engine and Biogas Upgrading applications, we employ thermal oxidizers, particulate removal and DeNOX systems, for the control of VOC, NOx, CO and particulates to prescribed emission limits.
MEGTEC is actively involved in providing Power Generation solutions for many applications ranging from utilizing process heat recovery systems to utilization with boilers, to recovering and utilizing Ventilation Air Methane (VAM) from coal mines.
MEGTEC has developed VAM processing technologies for either abatement only and in combination with energy recovery and utilization. MEGTEC’s proven technologies are destroying methane while generating high quality carbon credits, electricity for coal mines and heating for local communities and facilities.

SoniCool™ Evaporative Gas Cooling & Conditioning controls high-temperature furnace and converter off-gases, lowering them to temperatures below other spray technologies—without wetting problems. By lowering the temperature and conditioning the gas stream, SoniCool™ protects downstream equipment from damage and improves the efficiency of downstream APC equipment, such as baghouses and electrostatic precipitators.
MEGTEC's extensive scrubber experience applies to the cement manufacturing process for the effective control of SO2 and HCl by the injection of lime slurry. Our customers can achieve up to 90% reduction of SO2 and 98% reduction of HCl using microfine or standard lime. The TurboSorb Spray Dryer Absorber (SDA) can often retrofit into an existing gas conditioning tower, or downcomer duct, to avoid the high cost of new capital equipment.
Reliability. Uptime. Uninterrupted Production - all are essential requirements in painting and finishing applications. Just-in-time manufacturing demands uninterrupted production and smooth pressure control that eliminates pressure fluctuations in the painting and finishing process. MEGTEC has supplied many systems to Tier 1 and Tier 2 automotive plants where high volume, low concentration exhaust streams are treated economically and effectively, yet adaptable to changing finishing formulations.
Controlling the VOCs and CO emissions produced in the feed dryers (wet and dry milling), coupled with the particulate matter being introduced and the need for the reduction of NOx are just the start of having a successful abatement solution.
The challenges of smooth pressure control that reduces dryer fluctuations and plug resistant media that lessen the frequency of bake-outs are also part of a successful abatement system and we have the solutions.
Our engineered oxidation systems provide reliable performance with minimal maintenance requirements. Externally accessible valve bearings and other critical components are kept out of the corrosive moisture-laden streams extending the life of the equipment and facilitate maintenance intervals.
Our simple oxidizer designs control your emissions with minimal facility intervention and allow us to provide you with reliable and dependable equipment.
SoniCool™ Evaporative Gas Cooling & Conditioning uses a finely atomized water spray to cool EAF, BOF off-gases from over 2,400°F (1,315°C) to as low as 240°F (115°C), protecting ductwork and downstream air pollution control equipment from high temperature and sparks, while providing rapid cooling for dioxin and furan control. By optimizing humidity levels, SoniCool™ helps electrostatic precipitators. The water spray completely evaporates while cooling gases. There is no free water and no troublesome deposits in ducts, towers or hoppers. Turbotak rugged nozzles are made to the exact requirement, and ideally suited to the harsh conditions in the steel manufacturing process while still producing ultra-fine sprays, with precise control of dropsize and spray coverage.
