  • Waste Heat as a benefit of VOC Destruction with a Thermal Oxidiser - Case Study

    Application Although many look at the energy used to destruct VOCs as an unnecessary waste, Dickinson Legg (now Garbuio Dickinson), the world leader in the design and manufacture of Primary Tobacco Processing Plants saw it as an opportune way to supplement the heat required in their client’s tobacco refining process – in very different ways. Garbuio Dickinson chose an ...

  • Optimizing VOC Combustion - Case Study

    Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are pre-cursors to Ozone pollution and subject to EPA regulations. Thermal and catalytic oxidizers are routinely used to destroy VOC emissions from a variety of industrial sources. ...

  • Heat-enhanced bioremediation and destruction - Case Study

    Introduction In situ thermal treatment through Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH) is a proven robust technology for the treatment of volatile organic compound (VOC) source zones. ERH effectively treats the subsurface by volatilizing dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) and VOCs, recovering the vapor, and treating the vapor by conventional technologies such as granular activated carbon ...

  • 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 ...

  • Halogen and VOC Abatement requires an Integrated Solution - Advanced Scrubber Technology and a Regenerative Thermal Oxidiser - Case Study

    Application ERG supplied a waste gas treatment plant and over 4 years on the plant continues to deliver emissions compliance for Saffil. Saffil Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Unifrax, produces high temperature insulation products, for use in automotive catalytic convertors and other automotive and industrial applications. From their production facility in Widnes, ...

  • Air Emissions/Off-Gas Treatment

    A number of technologies have been widely applied for removal of VOCs from off-gas streams. However, the application of these technologies to off-gases from site remediation may be quite limited. Biofiltration has been widely applied for VOC destruction in Europe and Japan, but it has only recently been used in the United States. Catalytic and thermal oxidation are widely used for the destruction ...

  • Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer

    PRINCIPLES OF COMBUSTIONThermal oxidation technology has proven to be industry choice for destroying Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). The process of combustion is the most commonly used method to control emission of organic compounds.  Combustion type systems are always simple systems capable of having very high destruction efficiency.  ...
