  • Case study - RTO handles high VOC loading at silgan containers

    OVERVIEW Regeneration Game - Originally printed in The Canmaker Magazine - Sayers Publishing Group As the first generation of oxidizer systems in the industry nears the end of their service life, many canmaking plants face repair or replacement of their existing air pollution control systems. Like many others in the industry, a Silgan canmaking plant in the ...

  • How to Optimize Oxidation Systems for Efficient Operation

    Emphasis on air management within converting-process dryers and ovens is critical to the design of pollution-control systems for treating exhausts containing VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Efficient air management allows the pollution-control system to be optimally sized to meet the needs of the process. Good process control further defines the emission stream by avoiding the need for large ...

  • The Importance of high-quality service for regenerative thermal oxidizer

    The Importance of high-quality service for Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer. Safety, efficiency and compliance among pressures facing Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer operators. As any plant or maintenance manager working in a manufacturing environment using volatile organic compounds (VOCs) could tell you, the standards for support of all equipment along the process is critical for safety and ...

  • Case study - Meat processing odor control

    Overview For its first two years of production, a food manufacturer based in South Wales, England, focused its production on potatoes. Neighborhood residents voiced no complaints about odors during this time period. However, as new production lines (including barbequed meats and curried chicken) were added, the complaints began, and it became clear that odor abatement equipment was needed ...

  • Case study - RTO: Efficient and reliable styrene control technology

    Problem A producer and supplier of corrosion resistant piping systems was looking to improve the reliability and lower operating expenses of an existing air pollution control system at their facility. During their manufacturing process, centrifugally cast mortar pipe systems are reinforced with a fiberglass polymer. This makes the pipe ideally suited for most corrosive piping applications ...

  • Case study - Natural gas production

    OVERVIEW The largest U.S.-based independent oil and gas producer and one of the largest independent processors of natural gas and natural gas liquids in North America was in search of new technologies to maintain the pollution control efficiency at their natural gas treatment facility. In typical gas plants, the well head natural gas needs to be treated to remove water, CO2, ...

  • Case study - Oil and gas production

    Problem The largest U.S.-based independent oil and gas producer and one of the largest independent processors of natural gas and natural gas liquids in North America was in search of new technologies to maintain the pollution control efficiency at their natural gas treatment facility. In typical gas plants, the well head natural gas needs to be treated to remove water, CO2, any ...

  • Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers…What You Should Know.

    Within industry today, the use of an Air Pollution Control System (APCS) to control harmful air pollutants is not new.  In response to Congressional guidelines passed in the 1970’s, a number of companies with VOC emissions have been operating air pollution control systems of one type or another for 25 years or more.  These guidelines have been revised and added to as the years ...
