We partner with you every step of the process to design, manufacture, and install systems that reduce your environmental footprint, lower operating costs, and ultimately, maximize return on investment. With over half of Anguil’s staff consisting of degreed engineers, we are uniquely capable of addressing all of your environmental needs. Our engineering disciplines span mechanical, electrical, structural, chemical, and of course environmental disciplines. This diversity gives us the ability to not only identify the most effective equipment, but also engineer your system in a turnkey capacity.
Since 1978, Anguil has developed a variety of quality engineered technologies that control and reduce harmful pollutants, toxins, and contaminants from manufacturing operations and
industrial facilities. With thousands of successful installations around the world, Anguil’s engineering and system design expertise has consistently produced equipment effective at solving environmental challenges where others have failed. Simply put, Anguil engineers set us apart from the competition.
As a technology agnostic, full-service provider, we have the flexibility and creativity to integrate a wide variety of equipment, giving our customers a true turn-key experience. Pre-sale, we collaborate with you to identify the best fit system based on your regulatory requirements, efficiency needs, and process parameters. From there, our engineers build a detailed system plan, execute your custom solution with precision, and flawlessly integrate into your operation. Once the commissioning process is complete, your team is provided engineer-crafted training for your new Anguil system.
We understand how important it is for your Anguil system to be delivered and operational when planned. During the fabrication process, Anguil uses a gate approach to ensure quality standards and schedules are met. By breaking activities down into stages, critical production milestones can not be completed until all checks and balances are met. At each gate, a business evaluation and project review is required before a go/stop decision is made.
Anguil’s Quality Assurance Department vigorously applies this gate philosophy to ensure maximum customer satisfaction. From engineering through commissioning and beyond, documenting and maintaining a comprehensive quality management program is essential at Anguil. The Quality Assurance team plays a strategic role in “Best Practice” and continuous improvement implementation to ensure the best Anguil system and customer experience.
Anguil’s design team uses the latest in Computer-Aided Design, including AutoCad, Solidworks and other 3D software. Our CAD drafting department is committed to continuous education to stay current with the latest software releases and enhancements. They can create, modify, analyze, and optimize your existing drawings to seamlessly integrate them with your Anguil environmental technologies.
To avoid lengthy installations, many of our systems arrive on-site as modules: pre-assembled, pre-wired, factory tested and ready for a fast and efficient start-up. Our installation team can provide full turn-key services or simple installation supervision. You will be up and running with an Anguil-certified system from day one, full compliance guaranteed.
Installation strategy is considered early when your project is still on the drawing board and continually cross-examined until ready for start-up. We like to say our systems are engineered for installation because it often accounts for a substantial portion of the overall project budget and schedule. We take special precautions to prevent disruptions in your process and ensure a timely, quality, and on budget.
Our full menu of installation capabilities include, but are not limited to:
- Engineering services
- Installation supervision

As controls and automation technologies have advanced, Anguil has updated our control systems to provide the safest, most efficient, and highly reliable operation while integrating smoothly into existing plant operations. From new equipment to upgrades and retrofits, our systems utilize the latest in Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) based controls, touch screen interfaces, and remote telemetry, resulting in a system which meets variable operational demands while limiting the necessary operator oversight.
Reliable operation is paramount to the success of any industrial controls package. Anguil believes a good design is a reliable design. Designs should be resilient to downtime, account for safety and compliance risks, and optimize for usability.

In addition to thermal oxidizers, our electrical and programming engineers can integrate a wide number of additional equipment into a seamless control system including baghouses, scrubbers, heat exchangers, water treatment equipment, and other off-skid process controls. In all cases, controls integration can minimize the number of panels and operator touch points, saving in cost complexity. We provide remote HMIs and telemetry to allow operators to monitor the abatement equipment from their facility control rooms, production equipment or remote remediation sites.
Remote Monitoring and Control
We always strive for continuous improvement at Anguil, which is why we have increasingly designed our technologies with sensing devices that utilize a central control system to remotely measure and adjust settings. These smart devices utilize the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) to improve safety, reliability, and maintenance efforts. This functionality allows personnel inside and outside the plant to communicate with the Anguil system using native programming and an internet connection. Real-time data logging, event reporting, and alarm notification are just some of the benefits to IIOT. It is one of the easiest ways to expedite troubleshooting, reduce downtime, and enhance the value of routine preventive maintenance.
