- Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTO)

One of todays most widely accepted air pollution control technologies across the industry is Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer, commonly referred to as an RTO. RTO systems are used for VOC reduction, odor elimination, hazardous air pollutant (HAP) elimination, toxic air pollutant (TAP) elimination, opacity issues, and other requirements. A low initial capital cost, reduced annual operating cost, and minimal maintenance make this one of the most attractive technologies for our customers.

The RTO uses ceramic materials in order to absorb the heat given off from the exhaust gas. Then, this heat is used to preheat the incoming gas while eliminating pollutants released from the exhaust streams. This process is best used in applications with low VOC strengths with high waste stream flow levels because of the high thermal energy recovery rate.

Basic Operation:

Hot gas stream gets passed over a heat sink material and recovers the heat by a cold gas stream passing through in an alternating rotation. Through this process, harmful pollutants are converted to carbon dioxide and water vapor before exited the RTO, safely and purely. This ensures that your company’s exhaust emissions are controlled and safe.
