CPI Installed Catalytic Oxidizer for Tank Venting

    Catalytic Products International (CPI) installed a Catalytic Oxidizer (CatOx) at a Western USA chemical manufacturing facility for the abatement of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

    CPI CatOx 2023b EditThe VECTOR 3,000 SCFM Catalytic Oxidizer controls VOC emissions from multiple emission sources including six (6) reactor tank vents. Working closely with production personnel CPI designed, fabricated and installed a VOC capture system including six (6) individual vent sweep hoods with balancing dampers on the process vents. The capture hooding and enclosures were designed to meet EPA capture criteria and were integrated into the manufacturing process to allow production to continue unimpeded. The Catalytic Oxidizer will destroy the VOC emissions from the process units with +99% destruction rate efficiency (DRE).

    Catalytic treatment of VOCs and other air pollutants works by reacting the harmful air pollutants over a specially designed catalyst where VOCs are converted to CO2, water vapor (H2O), and usable heat. These harmless byproducts are passed through a heat exchanger where the gas streams energy is transferred to the incoming exhaust.

    The CPI Catalytic Oxidizer utilizes a high velocity mixing chamber at the burner, which forces flame impingement and turbulence to occur, providing excellent mixing of the air stream. By designing for the highest mixing, the CPI CatOx system can deliver the highest temperature uniformity before the catalyst bed and ensure that 100% of the catalyst is efficiently oxidizing the VOCs.

    CPI CatOx 2023aCatalytic Products International (CPI) provided a turnkey installation including design and supply of the Catalytic Oxidizer on a customer provided concrete pad.  Installation included stainless steel process ductwork, process isolation dampers, booster fan, exhaust stack, and LEL monitor. CPI was able to complete a good portion of the installation activities before the new unit arrived on site and delivered the Catalytic Oxidizer fully shop assembled and skid mounted. This approach guaranteed that entire system was installed correctly, and the facility was back up and producing product with minimal downtime.

    CPI has been “Enabling Clean Production™ Since 1969” and continues as a leading supplier of air pollution control equipment.  CPI is at the forefront in providing industries including the chemical manufacturing industry with solutions to their air pollution control needs.

    Today, CPI partners with its customers as a trusted resource in resolving the most complex air pollution and energy conservation problems. We provide our customers with innovative and cost-conscious solutions to their most complex VOC, NOx, and Odor pollution challenges. Our equipment is also at work meeting energy conservation strategies and minimizing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
