A thermal oxidizer (TO) provides chemical plants, refineries, and manufacturers with air pollution control using thermal combustion. They are used to destroy volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from industrial air streams.
Convert Pollutants into CO2 & H2O
Thermal oxidizers destroy mostly hydrocarbon-based pollutants. When the pollutants are destroyed by thermal combustion, they are chemically oxidized to form CO2 and H2O before emission.
The Most Effective Method for Destroying VOC
Thermal oxidizers are the most effective method for destroying VOC, providing the thermal oxidizers are well-maintained. Efficiencies are proven to be up to 99.99% possible.
Effective Thermal Oxidizers
Residence time, turbulence, and temperature are the three factors that determine how effective a thermal oxidizer is.
Direct-Fired Thermal Oxidizer
The most basic and inexpensive, yet powerful type of oxidizer is the direct-fired thermal oxidizer. With the right residence time, turbulence, and temperature a high destruction removal efficiency (DRE) of the VOCs are met. They operate between 1,200 °F and 2,190 °F. Direct-fired thermal oxidizers must be installed and maintained correctly in order to keep operating costs as low as possible. The system works best with a higher concentration of VOCs as a source of fuel for full combustion at the desired operating temperature.
