Reducing Emissions at Your Engine Test Facility

Engine testing and certification is an important part of any
R&D process. Naturally, this process exists to ensure reliability and that the
engines themselves are compliant with EPA standards, but that means you’re
holding and operating multiple HAP and VOC producing items in one place. Often
existing in or near main population centers, stakes are high, and regulations
are strict.

Today, we look at the role that engine test facilities play
in the automotive industry, discuss some of the challenges that companies face
in reducing emissions, and explore how to reduce air pollution at facilities.

The Importance of Engine Test Facilities

Engine testing is a vital process […]

    Air Pollution Control Challenges for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Air Pollution Control Challenges for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Whether it saves lives or simply improves the quality of
life for a patient, pharmaceutical product manufacturers know that perfection
is the only option. After all, the product you’re making likely took more than
a decade of testing and trials to even get where it is today. Now that it’s
entered the manufacturing and production phase, there’s zero room for error.

Pollution Control Challenges for the Pharmaceutical Industry

With no room for error, you often think FDA first, EPA
second, OSHA third. However, with the explosive nature that exists in the
pharmaceutical manufacturing environment, failure to control the EPA side of
things can quickly turn into failure […]

    Why Geotechnical Services Are Essential for Emission Control Compliance

Why Geotechnical Services Are Essential for Emission Control Compliance

Pollution control equipment can significantly reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released through manufacturing processes. Facilities using toxic solvents or generating high levels of VOCs must install abatement technology to meet standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These units destroy harmful compounds, reducing a facility’s overall emissions and allowing manufacturers to reach production goals.

However, in order for this system to work productively, the equipment must be carefully installed and maintained. Geotechnical reports are an important part of any facility’s long-term emission control strategy. Soil quality under and around pollution control equipment can impact the design, […]

Today, we would like to share some of our top resources, namely our most popular articles this year and the ones on the way up. […]

Evolving Tastes Fueling a Premium Push in Baking Operations

The premium push is hitting grocery stores—and it’s changing the way bakery operations work. Organic foods continue to see demand, artisan products are evolving and finding their way into shopping carts, and ingredients are changing. With this push comes a challenge. How can you justify price points, deliver consistency, innovate, and increase shelf life while making changes to adapt?
Artisan and ‘Artisan-Like’ Breads Finding Their Way into Consumer Shopping Carts
One of the biggest trends entering the baking space? Artisan bread. Discussed at the International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE) and in a recent Baking Business article, customers are pushing demand for […]

    How to Create an Effective Preventative Maintenance Plan for Your Pollution Control Equipment

How to Create an Effective Preventative Maintenance Plan for Your Pollution Control Equipment

Pollution control equipment is a vital part of the manufacturing industry. Facilities emitting volatile organic compounds (VOCs) must meet strict air quality guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). VOCs are released into the atmosphere when harmless chemicals vaporize and can cause health issues to humans, as well as damage the environment. Therefore, large manufacturing facilities must use pollution control equipment to capture and destroy toxic compounds to reduce their emissions and stay within federal and state limits.
Why Is It Important to Maintain Pollution Control Equipment?
Pollution control units are specifically designed to destroy harmful compounds emitted during the […]

How to Know Which Oxidizer Is Best For Your Business

Oxidizers are used to eliminate harmful pollutants emitted during the manufacturing process. There are various control systems available, each with slightly different operating procedures and requirements. Facility owners must consider which system not only works best with their production budgets but helps them meet all compliance regulations set by the EPA.

Furthermore, characteristics within each exhaust stream dictate what type of oxidizer is best suited for the job. Manufacturers must consider pollutant type, pollutant concentration, airflow volume, and airflow temperature when selecting a control unit.
Types of Oxidizers
There are two types of oxidizing control systems: catalytic and thermal.

Thermal oxidizers work by […]

    Is Your Current Emissions Control Operation Optimized for Best Results?

Is Your Current Emissions Control Operation Optimized for Best Results?

How to know when it’s time for a change.
Manufacturers must adhere to strict emission limits set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), industry leaders, and governing bodies. The Clean Air Act (1970) enforces these limits and updates them as new technologies emerge. While removing the use of harmful substances during the production process is recommended, it is not always feasible for manufacturers reliant on specific chemicals.

An emissions control system regulates and reduces the output of harmful pollutants by collecting and destroying volatile organic compounds (VOC) during production. Choosing the best system for your business is essential for meeting EPA […]

    How to Maintain a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) Effectively

How to Maintain a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) Effectively

Today’s manufacturers are under increasing pressure to meet strict environmental regulations, and an effective emission control system is vital to the ongoing operation of a plant.

The Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) is one of the most popular and cost-effective ways for emissions control. Here’s how to properly maintain this piece of critical equipment:
The Importance of RTO Maintenance
Due to the high operating temperature and exposure to corrosive chemicals, minor issues in an RTO can fester into major problems that could bring the entire manufacturing plant to a halt if they aren’t discovered and dealt with in a timely manner.

Here are the […]
