Traditionally the plant used regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTO) to reduce VOC emissions in the air stream.
Combined with Ener-Core's Power Oxidizer, and based on test results performed by third parties on a smaller gas turbine, both Dresser-Rand and Ener-Core are expecting similar and dramatic improvements in NOx emissions with no post-exhaust treatment.
For each of these projects, a specialty oil drilling chemical process and a landfill gas purification system, Met-Pro Systems will supply a thermal oxidizer system that will destroy hazardous air pollutants.
The Systems Division was selected to provide this equipment based on their extensive catalytic oxidizer experience in pharmaceutical and other industrial applications as well as a strong customer relationship developed while providing the same customer with similar systems in the past.
The second order is for a 1,000 SCFM thermal oxidizer, also to be used to treat vapors extracted from a ground remediation project in the midwestern United States.
The pair of 4,000 SCFM thermal oxidizers will be custom designed by Met- Pro to achieve a high efficiency destruction and removal of the carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons and will utilize proprietary Met-Pro supplied software for the oxidizers control system.
Regenerative oxidizers also work well in cases where the recurring cost of catalyst replacement is uneconomical, or when application flexibility is required due to many products with different solvent mixtures and exhaust air volumes running on the same line.
The oxidizer destroys a combination of aldehydes, ketones, alcohols, esters and non-volatile vegetable oil at the rate of 13.
In addition to TODD boiler burners, Zink brands include John Zink(R) process burners, duct burners, flares, thermal oxidizers and vapor control systems; Gordon-Piatt(TM) commercial and industrial burners and Kaldair(TM) flares and LNG vaporizer systems.
Platinum and cerium are widely used in exhaust aftertreatment devices such as automobile catalytic converters, diesel oxidizers and particulate filters which all clean up uncombusted fuel that has escaped the engine.
The chemicals include acids, caustics, flammable liquids, oxidizers, reactive compounds, volatile organic compounds and halogenated compounds.
