Flexible Packing Operation Replaces APCS With RTO
To increase heat recovery and destruction efficiency, a leading provider of flexible packaging to the food, consumer products, product sampling and direct marketing industries selected a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer from The CMM Group to replace on older, existing air pollution control system.
The new 15,000 scfm RTO is designed to destroy 98%+ of the 50 pounds per hour of pollutants present in the exhaust from the printing presses generated during the company’s 24/7 operation. The CMM RTO can also recover up to 95% of the 1,400 degree heat generated as the air flow is exchanged between two heat recovery chambers. The heavily insulated chambers are filled with ceramic media to absorb the heat and maintain the high temperature, resulting in a significant savings in the amount of energy needed to fuel the system.
