    All About Ammonia: Why the EPA Has Concern About Ammonia Emissions

    Ammonia (NH3) is one of the most commonly produced industrial chemicals in the United States. It is used in industry and commerce, and it also exists naturally in humans and in the environment. Ammonia is essential for many biological processes and serves as a precursor for amino acid and nucleotide synthesis. In the environment, ammonia is part of the nitrogen cycle and is produced in soil from bacterial processes. Ammonia is also produced naturally from decomposition of organic matter, including plants, animals, and animal wastes.

    Do I need an RTO? Part 1: What is Regenerative Thermal Oxidation?

    Our first encounters with our customers often start with this statement; “I was told that I need a RTO.”  That’s obviously a big statement which usually leads to many more questions to precisely determine where we can help. This also means that the person with interest has some sort of air pollution control problem that may involve volatile organic compounds (VOC), carbon monoxide (CO) or odorous emissions. 

    It may be helpful to understand the basic reason anyone would need a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO).

    How to qualify for over $100,000 in utility rebates by installing new oxidizer


    Energy_Rebate_Check

    Performing an Energy Assessment

    A web coating company contacted us to repair, yet again, an existing recuperative thermal oxidizer. Catalytic Products Design Engineers sat down with the customer to discuss their current process and as well as their future needs along with performing an energy assessment. The outcome of this review indicated that  significant savings could be recognized by replacing the Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer with a new Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO).

    Read our case study for more details.
