Building a Sustainable Manufacturing Operation

In today’s litigious and media-driven landscape, in which a disparaging article can cause boycotts and potentially destroy businesses, companies in all industries need to stay ahead of the curve. It’s no longer about global warming, it’s about climate change. Paired with this, it’s no longer enough to do just enough to remain compliant, you need to show that you are a leader in your field.

Over the years, we have looked to highlight the risks of noncompliance, discuss the increased media focus on an ever-consolidating paint industry, explore the questionable-yet-creative ways activists and attorneys are attacking compliant businesses, and offer […]

How to Optimize the Performance of Your Rotary Concentrator

Manufacturing plants that generate a low to moderate amount of pollutants can reduce operating costs by using a rotary concentrator for VOC and air pollutant abatement.
How a Rotary Concentrator Works
A rotary concentrator efficiently removes and destroys volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and air pollutants with a two-step process.

A ductwork collection system in a rotary concentrator captures exhaust air, which is then passed through a high-efficiency filter to remove particulates.

Next, the airstream is directed through the rotating concentrator wheel, where pollutants are adsorbed by the hydrophobic Zeolite media, which is permanently bonded to a corrugated mineral fiber substrate inside the rotor.
