How Infrared Ovens and Process Heating Solutions Deliver for Manufacturers

Process heating is a science, and the application of heat is a necessary part of the manufacturing world. From drying paint to cooking food, ovens, dryers, and other custom machinery are a necessity for manufacturers. Knowing this, during the decision and selection process, you will need to make a few decisions on the way you need your product to work—one of the most important of these being heat source. Today, we would like to explore the rise of infrared heating technology and discuss how it can benefit a wide range of manufacturers.

Why Use a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer for VOC Abatement

For many industrial manufacturers, choosing a VOC abatement technology can have a significant impact on their operating cost and therefore, profitability.

You need to consider the many facets of an emissions control solution – such as upfront investment, ongoing maintenance, the total cost of ownership, energy usage, and plant design – to select the most cost-effective solution for your facility.

A Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) is a VOC abatement technology that works well for many manufacturing plants. Here’s what you need to know when choosing your emissions control solution:

Controlling Nitrogen Oxides in the Manufacturing Industry

Nitrogen oxides (NOx) are common air pollutants emitted during many industrial manufacturing processes. Their emission is controlled by the EPA, and manufacturers are required to control the amount of NOx their processes release into the atmosphere.
What Are Nitrogen Oxides?
NOx occurs mostly in the form of nitric oxides (NOx) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2), both of which are corrosive and hazardous to health.

Nitrogen, in its natural form (N2), is an inert gas that makes up 80% of the air. However, as a single atom, it is quite reactive and can combine with oxygen in the air to form a few different […]

    Stocking Your Facility with the Right Pollution Control Parts

Stocking Your Facility with the Right Pollution Control Parts

The world of manufacturing presents many ongoing legal, legislative, and regulatory challenges.

From attempts to charge compliant manufacturers with public nuisance fines to the decision to change certain areas from moderate Ozone noncompliance to serious noncompliance (and pursuant changes to State Implementation Plans) it’s tough to stay compliant, competitive, and cost conscious.

Knowing this, unplanned downtime to your air pollution control system is noncompetitive, noncompliant, and most certainly not cost conscious. In the event that your oxidizer unexpectedly shuts down, everything shuts down as your team goes into scramble mode to make repairs, find parts, or get in contact with a […]

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers: Random vs. Structured Media

Throughout the air pollution control system consultation process, you will be presented with a lot of information from a wide range of vendors, all of whom have slightly different design elements that affect the price, destruction efficiency, thermal efficiency, and operating costs.
Understanding the Difference: Random Media vs. Structured Media
As VOC Abatement Solutions are reliable and may last decades (with the right maintenance), you may not have been exposed to the changes in the market or may just know about your current system. This said, differences can have big impacts on the ongoing operation of your new system, affecting everything […]

3 Ways to Improve the Cost-Efficiency of VOC Abatement

As more awareness is developed around the damaging health and environmental effects of volatile organic compounds (VOC), the government is enforcing stricter regulations to control VOC in the manufacturing industry.

The Clean Air Act is one of the key pieces of legislation for improving the nation’s air quality and protecting the stratospheric ozone layer. Many industrial manufacturers have to install costly equipment and redesign their plants to comply with the law. Failure to do so can lead to citations and hefty fines.

Currently, manufacturers must bear the expenses related to VOC abatement, which impacts the operating cost and the bottom line […]

Controlling VOC Emission in Your Manufacturing Plant

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are generated during a variety of industrial processes such as petroleum refining, metal production, chemical processing, and the manufacturing of consumer and commercial products.

The level of emission, VOC concentration, and exhaust air volume vary depending on the processes and the abatement technologies used.
The Impact of VOC Emission
There are different types of VOCs, many of which are harmful to humans and the environment. They can lead to negative respiratory, allergic, or immune effects such as eye, nose, and throat irritation, headaches, loss of coordination, and nausea. They can also damage the liver, kidneys, and central nervous […]

Industrial Cheese Melter: Connecting Customer Expectations and Reality

If you’re a user of the social networking platform Reddit, it’s likely you’ve heard of the community called “Expectation vs. Reality.” For those not familiar, this community, or ‘sub’ as it’s called on the platform, is a place where users post “comparison pictures” including failed cake designs, fast food failures, and other events in which a user expected something advertised to them, only to find the item provided was… different.

So why are we—a company who specializes in pollution control, industrial ovens, and other process heating applications—talking about a social media platform?

    Abatement Strategies for Controlling Emission and Air Pollution

Abatement Strategies for Controlling Emission and Air Pollution

In industrial manufacturing, the control of emission and air pollutants is a key component in reducing environmental impact while staying compliant with government regulations.

Emission often refers to man-made contaminants, while air pollution can be caused by substances released into the atmosphere as a result of both human activities and natural phenomena.

In addition, air pollution control focuses on gases and particulates that are released into the atmosphere and affect the air quality, while emission control encompasses the abatement of a wider range of pollutants, such as noise and heat, that are released into the environment.
What Is Air Pollution Control?

    4 Steps To Choosing the Best Industrial VOC Abatement Solution

4 Steps To Choosing the Best Industrial VOC Abatement Solution

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are one of the most common and dangerous pollutants emitted by manufacturing plants. Not only are they harmful to human health, but releasing these substances into the atmosphere can also be a violation of environmental regulations.

It’s therefore essential to implement the right industrial clean air solution for your manufacturing operation. There’s a variety of VOC abatement strategies available – here’s how to select the most appropriate technologies for your plant:
Define Your Requirements
There are many considerations when implementing a VOC abatement strategy. You need to understand all the constraints and requirements so that you can select […]
