  • Ozone precursor analysis using a thermal desorption-GC System

    In the United States, the Clean Air Act of 1970 gave the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) responsibility for maintaining clean air for health and welfare. Six parameters are measured routinely in ambient air: SOx, NOx, PM10 (particulate matter less than 10 microns), Pb, CO and ozone. In the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments, Title 1 expanded the measurements in air to include volatile ...

  • A Comprehensive Review Of Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers

    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 progressed, making it ...

  • Comparison of a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer to a Rotary Concentrator

    INTRODUCTION The regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) is a very durable, well-proven technology suitable for treating a wide variety of emission streams. However, The RTO may not be the most economical technology available. Two very common systems for treating emissions from coating and finishing processes are the RTO and the concentrator/ oxidizer system. To determine which system is best suited ...

  • Achieving Air Pollution Control with Catalytic or Thermal Oxidizers

    As the full effect of 1990’s Federal Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments continue to impact today’s industry, many manufacturing operations have become subject to stricter local, state and federal clean air regulations. Both VOC (volatile organic compound) and HAP (hazardous air pollutant) emissions are strictly regulated since they lead to the formation of ground-level ozone (or smog). The CAA ...
