CPI Installs Electrically Heated Oxidizer for Ammonia Removal


    CPI Electric Catalytic Oxidizer for Ammonia Emission Abatement

    Catalytic Products International (CPI) installed an electrically heated Catalytic Oxidizer at a Western USA refinery for the abatement of ammonia emissions from a wastewater process.

    The 2,500 SCFM Electric Catalytic Oxidizer (ERCO) controls the exhaust from an air stripping column used to remove ammonia (NH3) from plant’s foul wastewater process. The flameless, electric oxidizer system delivers a minimum of +98% NH3 destruction rate efficiency (DRE). 

    Catalytic Oxidizer treatment of ammonia (NH3) and other air pollutants works by reacting the harmful air pollutants over a specially designed catalyst where NH3 and other VOCs are converted to harmless nitrogen (N2), carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), and usable heat. The CPI Vector-E Series Electrically Heated Catalytic Oxidizer utilizes a high velocity mixing chamber 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 NH3 and other 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.

    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 oil and natural gas 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 NH3, VOC, NOx, and Odor pollution challenges.
