    Identifying Your Ideal Air Pollution Control Technology, Scenario 3

    In our recent blog, "What's the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?",  we examined the many factors that can impact a facility's choice of air pollution control equipment. When they are considering their air pollution control needs, it is important for the plant's engineering staff to discuss the application data with potential suppliers. This data will provide crucial details about the process operation, including as uptime, maximum VOC loading, and maximum air flow. With this data, the supplier will be able to predict energy usage, permitted emission rates, and other process operation data that may be critical to equipment design, and with this knowledge, they will be able to recommend options that meet the requirements for Best Available Control Technology (BACT) or Maximum Available Control Technology (MACT), ensuring that the facility's engineering staff will be able to meet or exceed their environmental goals or outcomes.

    Identifying Your Ideal Air Pollution Control Technology, Scenario 2

    In our recent blog, "What's the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?", we took a look at the many factors that inform the choice of air pollution control equipment. When considering air pollution control needs for a facility, it is important for the plant's engineering staff to discuss the application data with potential suppliers. This data includes details about the process operation such as uptime, maximum VOC loading, maximum air flow, energy usage concerns, permitted emission rates, and other process operation data that may be critical to equipment design. Reviewing this data will help determine the available options that will be able to meet or exceed the facility's environmental goals or outcomes. With this data, the air pollution control equipment supplier will then be able to determine the appropriate Best Available Control Technology (BACT) or Maximum Available Control Technology (MACT).

    Identifying Your Ideal Air Pollution Control Technology, Scenario 1

    In our previous blog, "What's the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?", we reviewed the many factors that impact the choice of air pollution control equipment. In situations where a facility is considering their air pollution control needs, it is important for the plant's engineering staff to discuss the application data with potential suppliers. Application data are the details about the process operation such as uptime, maximum VOC loading, maximum air flow, energy usage concerns, permitted emission rates, and other process operation data that may be critical to equipment design.

    Thinking Outside the Box in Thermal Oxidizer Heat Exchanger Design

    A thermal oxidizer (also known as a thermal incinerator) is a process unit for air pollution control in many industrial plants that decomposes volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at a high temperature and releases them into the atmosphere.

    Heat Recovery: What Is It Exactly, and Why Should I Think About It ?

    Any facility operator that consumes significant amounts of natural gas should understand the basics of heat recovery. Here at Catalytic Products International (CPI), we find ourselves engaged in energy conservation discussions with our existing and prospective customers several times each week. We felt that “Heat Recovery 101” may be a useful tool to help our readers fully understand some of the basics and economics about heat recovery solutions.

    Can Coater Chooses the Quadrant SR Thermal Oxidizer

    A metal can decorator worked with Catalytic Products International, Inc to design a unique Thermal (recuperative) Oxidizer. A recuperative thermal oxidizer was chosen over other thermal oxidation systems because of high solvent loads exhausted from the company’s can coating lines and a desire to integrate customized energy recovery system.

    Recuperative Thermal Oxidizers and Midstream Natural Gas Processing

    A large midstream natural gas processing facility was in urgent need of a VOC abatement device for their newly expanded gas processing plant. The operator was expanding their operations at an unusually fast pace. In the process of bringing on new gas treating capacity, they found themselves up against the limits of their current operating permit. Any new sources would put them over their limits as defined under EPA guidelines: 40 CFR, Part 63, Subpart HH – National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants from Oil and Natural Gas Production Facilities.

    QUADRANT SRS Thermal Oxidizer replaces silicone-contaminated system

    A Silicone Tape Converter recently replaced a poorly designed thermal oxidizer with a custom engineered thermal oxidizer designed by Catalytic Products International, Inc. The process coated film with a silicone based adhesive. The silicone vaporizes with other VOC’s in the drying process and is ducted to the thermal oxidizer. The combustion process converts the silicone vapors to a powder – like Silicon DiOxide. In a traditionally designed thermal oxidizer, the SiO2 clings to metal surfaces and causes lost efficiency with excessive maintenance.
