For companies in a variety of industries, the clock is ticking regarding their compliance with local, state and federal clean air requirements. The need to provide adequate emission controls still looms on the horizon as these companies explore the various equipment and technology options available to them. While the guidelines regarding air pollution control are consistent by industry, a company’s specific needs within that industry can vary greatly. There are many factors that can influence the type of air pollution control system a company may require. For example, the type and quantity of chemicals or solvents used in the production process will need to be considered. The type of production process itself is important as it relates to the emission of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) or air toxics to be controlled. Even the geographical location of where the unit will be installed could have an impact on the oxidizer design.
The basic design concept of Catalytic, Regenerative Thermal and Recuperative Thermal Oxidizers involves the destruction of VOCs or Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) contained in process exhaust fumes by destroying them at elevated temperatures. The methods employed to heat the fumes and the operating temperatures needed to assure their destruction are the primary differences between the various air pollution control technologies.
