CPI Installs Electrically Heated Oxidizer at Chemical Manufacturer


    CPI Electrically Heated CatOx Chemical

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

    The 750 SCFM Electric Catalytic Oxidizer (ERCO) controls the exhaust from a vacuum pump and several process vents. The flameless, electric oxidizer system will destroy the VOC emissions from the process units with 99% destruction rate efficiency (DRE). 

    Catalytic Oxidizer treatment of VOCs and other air pollutants works by reacting the harmful air pollutants over a specially designed catalyst where the VOCs are converted to carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), and usable heat. The CPI Electric Recuperative Catalytic Oxidizer utilizes a high velocity mixing chamber at the heater which forces turbulence to occur, providing excellent mixing of the air stream. With high mixing, the VECTOR system can deliver the highest temperature uniformity before the catalyst bed. Temperature uniformity ensures that 100% of the catalyst is efficiently oxidizing the VOCs. 

    CPI provided engineering, design and supply of the Electric Oxidizer. The Electric Catalytic Oxidizer was designed and shipped to allow for simple installation. This approach guaranteed that the entire system was installed correctly with minimal impact on the operations.

    In addition, process vent sweep hoods were installed on the process vents to add dilution air to the concentrated VOCs and inert process gas. The combination of sweep hoods lowers the concentration of VOCs to a safe lower explosive limit (LEL) and effectively conveys the VOCs to the oxidizer. CPI provided ductwork design, startup, commissioning and operator training for the newly installed Catalytic Oxidizer.

    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 chemical manufacturing, with solutions to their air pollution control needs.
