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.
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...
Case study - Fiberglass polymer emissions: RTO control technology
OVERVIEWA 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 but also produces a significant amount of styrene emissions that need to be destroyed. Plant personel knew that their existing...
Case study - Increasing primary heat recovery
OVERVIEWTekra Corporation is 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 that long-term, an RTO was their best choice for reliable...
Case study - RTO handles high VOC loading at silgan containers
OVERVIEWRegeneration Game - Originally printed in The Canmaker Magazine - Sayers Publishing GroupAs 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 Midwest had been using a thermal recuperative oxidizer with direct heat recovery for control of emissions from its sheet coating lines. After more than a decade...
