Global Technologies developed the Dual Therm-CatTM in order to utilize the benefits of both thermal oxidation and catalytic oxidation for destroying contaminants such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs). These treatment devices are typically designed to handle process exhaust under 5,000 SCFM from groundwater and soil remediation processes such as Soil Vapor Extraction (SVE), Air Stripping, Dual Phase Extraction or Groundwater Pumps at remediation sites.
The Therm-Cat model is designed to operate in both thermal (1400° - 1500°F) and catalytic (500° - 600°F) modes for maximum operational flexibility. The oxidizer is capable of adjusting to the changing conditions of any remediation site.
During startup, the system operates in thermal mode to effectively destroy the high concentration of air pollutants in the stream (up to 50% LEL). Later in the lifecycle of the site, as the concentrations decrease, the VOCs and HAPs can be cost-effectively destroyed by switching the system to catalytic mode. The addition of catalyst to the Therm-Cat lowers the operating temperature and reduces operating cost.
A Therm-Cat is sized based on volume of airflow, loading and desired destruction efficiency. During operation, emission-laden air is drawn through the fan and into the combustion chamber, where the contaminated air is heated and raised to the oxidizing temperature. When the VOC and HAP laden air is oxidized an exothermic reaction takes place. Pollutants in the airstream are converted to water vapor and some carbon dioxide before being exhausted to atmosphere.
