Remove Gaseous Wastes with Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers

Even those of us who aren’t eco-friendly or “earth conscious” know the three Rs – Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. More and more companies are jumping on board with the three Rs, not just as a publicity stunt but because of a sincere concern for their impact on the environment. And, in many instances, some of the methods and tools used to ease the impact a company makes on the planet’s resources can also financially benefit that company. A great example of this is the use of a regenerative thermal oxidizer.

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers from OxidizerService.com are anti-pollution tools that work in two ways. First, they use heat-producing combustion to draw in and destroy pollutants and air contaminants. And second, the heat that is produced by a regenerative thermal oxidizer can then be harnessed and used for other services and procedures which can use heat as an energy source (underground wells and steam-powered engines, for example).

A thermal oxidizer works by drawing in exhaust steam. Once the exhaust steam is drawn in, it is burned, and the resulting waste-filled gas is transferred into energy recovery chambers, where that exhaust is pre-heated, then sent to a combustion chamber to be destroyed. The leftover gas and resulting heat is then transferred to ceramic media beds, which can then direct the heat to other connected sources.

At peak efficiency, regenerative thermal oxidizers can remove up to 99 percent of gaseous waste, and 95 percent of the generated heat can be harnessed and redirected for other uses.

You will find that regenerative thermal oxidizers are used in a variety of industries, and in a variety of ways. Common industries that frequently take advantage of the air-cleaning and heat-generating capabilities of regenerative thermal oxidizers include waste processing facilities, paper mills, flour mills, and even paint spray booths. While they may be a little expensive to acquire and set up, once in place these oxidizers can work on an automated process, and will accurately and efficiently remove volatile organic compounds from waste-filled air, and then transfer the created heat to other appliances for eco-friendly use of the generated heat.
