Direct-Fired Thermal Oxidizer and Scrubber Video
Sometimes referred to as an After-Burner or Flare, the direct fired thermal oxidizer uses a specially designed burner to raise the temperature of a pollutant laden air stream to a predetermined combustion temperature. In operation, the contaminated process exhaust is ducted into a burner chamber. Heat applied by the burner oxidizes the Volatile Organic Compounds and Hazardus Air Pollutants. A gas scrubber may be need downstream to handle the inorganic compounds and acids.
