Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer

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 […]

    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 […]

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:
How Does a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) Work?

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 […]

Rotary Concentrators for the Paint and Coatings Industry

For manufacturers in the paint and coatings industry, volatile organic compounds or VOCs are part of doing business. From solvents to colorants, nearly all coatings in the world contain VOCs, which are released during the manufacturing process all the way through application and outgassing/drying.

In fact, paint and coatings production and use is the second largest source of VOC emissions into the atmosphere after automobiles, responsible for roughly 11 billion pounds every year.

With this in mind, regulators and industry associations have spent decades drafting rules, guidelines, and regulations for coatings manufacturers, designed to minimize the creation or release of VOCs […]

    5 Ways a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer Improves Your Operation

5 Ways a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer Improves Your Operation

Running a successful factory doesn’t only depend on the quality of your products but on the overall performance of the facility. Many industrial processes produce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that need to be destroyed before the exhaust air is released into the atmosphere.

This is where a regenerative thermal oxidizer, also known as a RTO, can help.

These dedicated pieces of machinery are designed to destroy VOCs and other air pollutants before they enter our atmosphere. This allows factory managers to reduce their facility’s environmental impact and adhere to mandatory regulations set by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Besides destroying air pollutants, there […]
