Quebecor World Inc. is the largest commercial printer in the world. The company prints magazines, catalogs, retail inserts, multinational books, direct mail, trade publications, directory products, and much more. They are a market leader in many product categories utilizing the latest technology to meet their customer's printing needs. The Lincoln facility needed additional oxidizer capacity to treat the exhaust from a new press line. MEGTEC Systems evaluated options and came up with a low cost solution.
CPI Replaces CatOx with Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) at Web Coater
Catalytic Products International (CPI) recently completed the installation of a new TRITON Series Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) at a Midwest USA manufacturer of specialty tapes for the abatement of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). The new 30,000 scfm Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) replaced an existing CPI VECTOR-21500 Catalytic Oxidizer originally installed and commissioned in 1997. Since 2010 the customer experienced some formulation changes resulting in increased amounts of silicone. These...
Plant reduces utility expenses with new emission control system - Case Study
The steadily increasing natural gas prices near the end of 2004 were becoming a substantial operating cost burden on a facility producing automolive painl and coatings and developing coating products. The major consumers of natural gas at this facility were the main system of boilers which supplied steam energy throughout ihe facility and two Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs) which controlled the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) and Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) emissions to the atmosphere. One of the RTOs...
Paint & Coatings Manufacturer Selects CPI RTO
Catalytic Products International (CPI) recently completed the installation of a new TRITON Series Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) to a Midwest USA location of a global paints and coatings manufacturer for the abatement of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). This new 5,000 SCFM Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) was installed to replace an existing catalytic oxidizer which had reached the end of its operational life due to thermal fatigue. Since this was a replacement of an existing oxidizer, CPI could...
RTO upgrade sees significant benefits - Case Study
A project this year to upgrade an existing RTO has been successfully completed in four areas: Increasing thermal efficiency by adding additional layers of ceramic honeycomb media into the RTO this has the benefits of energy reduction from lower gas consumption both during production & on standby. De-commissioning an old inefficient recuperative oxidiser which was attached to a single process stream and contained a low thermal effectiveness thermal efficiency heat recovery unit Redirecting & relocating...
Case study -New media makes RTO natural gas usage a rarity!
OverviewTekra Corporation has always had an eye on their energy conservation. They are a custom coater of plastic films in Wisconsin where state regulations require over 98% of the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emitted from their process be destroyed in an oxidizer system. While considering their first oxidizer system, Tekra`s Engineers did their homework and invested in an early model Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO). While at the time RTOs were not the cheapest oxidizer option capital-wise, Tekra knew...
