Production output and cost control can be difficult to obtain consistently in any manufacturing operation.
In this white paper, we describe one facility’s experience with installing and maintaining a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) control system. This is a typical example of how a preventive maintenance plan can ensure the control system operates with 100 percent reliability, how such a plan can be designed so implementation does not interfere with production, and how the low cost of a preventive maintenance plan makes sense for every plant’s bottom line.
This paper also examines the challenges and benefits of establishing an appropriately designed preventive maintenance program for the operators of a VOC abatement device. These systems can include: Catalytic, thermal, regenerative oxidizers, or concentration devices designed to destroy VOC/HAP emissions and satisfy state or federal clean air act permit requirements.
