Oxidizer Systems

Oxidizer systems are available in various configurations and based upon differing mechanisms. Here, we give an overview of the available oxidation systems and describe their usages with respect to cost-efficieny.

Worldwide Outdoor Air Pollution Problem

The global burden of contaminated air flows from industrial and manufacturing processes can subside, if the air is properly and efficiently purified. Thermal processing equipment minimizes the operating costs of efficiently destroying pollutants in air flows, such as Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and other odorous emissions released during industrial or manufacturing processes.

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer Technology

Regenerative thermal oxidizer technology purifies the air flows from industrial or manufacturing processes by destroying Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and discharged odorous emissions.

Thermal Oxidizer Technology

Thermal oxidizer technology is rapidly improving, as manufacturing techniques change, human machine interfaces develop, sophisticated distribution algorithms are employed for logistics leading to cost reductions, and microprocessers continue to become more powerful in accordance with Moore's law. This steadfast improvement for thermal oxidizers, makes the technology the leading choice for air pollution control.

Heat Recovery

In the development of Thermal oxidizer technology, the concept of heat recovery plays a central role. Without the redirection of heat from output air, as well as from different liquid systems, the operating costs of thermal oxidizers can be abysmal. Thus, the mechanism of heat recovery is essential in air pollution control for operating efficiency.

Air Pollution Abatement

Thermal oxidizers (RTO) combat the global air pollution control problem with unprecedented efficiency by incorporating advances from silicon chip lithography and materials science into their design. In industry the air contaminants emanate from the combustion processes, and air flows must be purifed before returning to the environment. This requires an efficient solution, and thermal oxidizers are the optimal choice for air pollution control in the industrial setting.

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO)

Regerative thermal oxidizers (RTO) is a specific type of thermal oxidizer that repurposes the thermal energy generated during the air pollution control process. This style of a air pollution process unit provides efficient air pollution control and is a industrial standard for facilities that require the destruction of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and other odorous emissions that are discharged during industrial or manufacturing processes.

Programming a Thermal Oxidizer

Thermal oxidizers are the most popular choice for the efficient purification of industrial air streams, whereby pollutants emanate from industrial processes. Here, we describe the role of computer programming for programmable logic controllers, or PLC, and human machine interfaces, or HMI, in the design of thermal oxidizers and explain how thermal oxidizers work with optimal destruction efficiency.

Thermal Oxidizer Process

Air contaminants mostly originate from combustion processes, and air pollution abatement is a necessity. Thermal oxidizers are the most popular choice for the efficient purification of industrial air streams.

Air Pollution Control

Thermal oxidizers are utilized as air pollution control systems for industrial processes. The process unit for air pollution control destroys hazardous air pollutants (HAPS), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and odorous emissions that are discharged from industrial or manufacturing air flows. To improve a thermal oxidizer's efficiency one can design a thermal oxidizer such that the waste heat recovery unit utilizes a regenerative process.

Waste Heat Recovery

A waste heat recovery system can redirect heat from output air, as well as from different liquid systems, to improve operating efficiency for air pollution control equipment devices (such as regenerative thermal oxidizers).

Thermal Oxidizer Thermocouples

A thermocouple is a device that measures temperature by employing the thermoelectric effect. When two different metals are adjoined at their ends and a temperature difference between the two metals exists, a voltage is generated. By applying a voltage to the adjoining metal ends, a thermocouple produces a temperature difference between the metal ends. This provides an accurate tool to measure temperature in industry, and is widely employed for thermal oxidizers. ...

Thermal Oxidizer Manufacturing

A regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) is a specific type of thermal oxidizer (also known as a thermal incinerator) that repurposes the thermal energy generated during air pollution control operations. Hence, a RTO provides an efficient process unit for air pollution control in several industrial facilities that destroy Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and other odorous emissions that are discharged during industrial or manufacturing processes...

But the keeping with scheduled thermal oxidizing equipment repair and maintenance is the only way any engineer...

A Quick Guide to Selective Catalytic Reduction Systems

One of the means to abating nitrogen oxides (NOx) from flue gas as a result of steam generation in commercial boilers includes selective catalytic reduction (SCR). Simply, SCR is a mix of an ammonia source – typically anhydrous ammonia or aqueous ammonia – with a flue gas as it enters an SCR chamber before descending over a catalyst bed where the nitrogen oxides react with the ammonia to form nitrogen and water before exiting the chamber harmless. In this fashion, many energy producers from traditional steam generators to bio-mass energy stations are made compliant with pollution standards by use of this precision pollution control equipment. But how is it done in detail? For those interested...
