Case studies of companies in various industries that are utilizing Catalytic Product's air pollution control solutions to meet EPA federal and state regulations cost-effectively. Solutions include CPI's TRITON regenerative thermal oxidizers, VECTOR catalytic oxidizers, and QUADRANT thermal oxidizers.
Oxidizer Case Histories
Environmental pollution and emission control regulations provide unique challenges for the pharmaceutical industry. In this article, three pharmaceutical process case studies are examined for fluidized bed drying, tablet coating/reaction vessels, and batch operations.
Thermal Oxidizers for Natural Gas Savings
Midstream gas processing plants are complicated production facilities. These plants process large quantities of natural gas and hydrocarbon liquids. CPI breaks down the industry and tells the story of installing a VOC abatement device and the special needs for today's midstream gas processing plant.
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.
Innovative Ammonia Control
Ammonia has increasingly become more of a regulatory concern. Ammonia emissions into the atmosphere have been linked to the formation of fine particulate matter, while ammonia emissions in wastewater are restricted because of the negative affect the chemical has on rivers, lake, and aquifers.
Petro-Chemical Processor meets National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants
A multitude of chemical and petroleum processing facilities across the country are now faced with having to meet new National Emission Standards for Miscellaneous Organic Chemical Manufacturing. One specific NESHAP is 40 CFR part 63, subpart FFFF.
Biomass Generation Facility Replaces Flare
This case study discusses how Catalytic Products International reduced emissions at a Biomass facility by replacing a flare with a VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizer
Custom Web Coater Chooses the VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizer
A Custom Webcoater treats three different sources with a VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizer in this air emission control case study.
Heat Recovery System at a Flooring Manufacturer
To combat the rising cost of natural gas, many companies that operate air pollution control systems are beginning to look at methods that economically recover heat for use somewhere else in their manufacturing operations. In this case study, a flooring manufacturer asks Catalytic Products to recover heat from his regenerative thermal oxidizer to save on energy expenses.
Heat/Web offset printer uses the TRITON Series Thermal Oxidizer
A heat-set/web offset printer recently installed a TRITON Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer from Catalytic Products International, Inc. The TRITON system was contracted on a turnkey basis, in which CPI engineered and installed; the ductwork system from all dryers, foundation work, electrical integration, and rigged the oxidizer. The project was installed on time and without any added costs.
Silicone Converter Succeeds with Custom Air Pollution Control Equipment
Many industries utilize silicone as an ingredient in their manufactured product. Silicone enhances the attributes of the product or helps to improve production characteristics. Whatever the reason may be, users of solvent borne silicone's all face very troubling issues when it comes to the selection of the right air pollution control system.
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 QUADRANT SR Series Thermal Oxidizer and the Textiles Industry
A synthetic leather manufacturer worked with Catalytic Products International, Inc. to design a unique Thermal (recuperative) Oxidizer. A recuperative thermal oxidizer was chosen because of high solvent LEL (+25%) exhausted from the process and a desire to integrate a hot oil recovery system to work with the oil heated production coating/curing line.
Turnkey Installation for a Custom Coater
A custom coating operation recently installed a TRITON-Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer manufactured by Catalytic Products International, Inc. The TRITON system was contracted on a turnkey basis in which CPI engineered and installed; the fugitive enclosure system to meet method 204, the ductwork system from all production lines, foundation work, electrical integration, and rigged the oxidizer.
QUADRANT SR Thermal Oxidizer & the Chemical Industry
Chemical processing facilities across the country are facing ever tightening restrictions for volatile organic compound (VOC) and hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions. These emissions can be generated from such points as process vents, storage tanks, fugitive releases, among others…. To achieve compliance with Clean Air Act Amendments, facilities may have to apply maximum achievable control technology (MACT) and demonstrate MACT compliance during normal operations and startup, shutdown, and malfunction conditions.
Flexographic Printer System Repair
This Compliance Resoluction case study describes how Catalytic Products International re-engineered another manufacturers Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer and brought it into compliance.
Flexographic Printer chooses the TRITON SERIES Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer
A Flexographic Printer installs the TRITON Series Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer in this case study.
Can Coater Chooses the Quadrant SR Thermal Oxidizer
This case study describes how a can coater used the QUADRANT SR Thermal Oxidizer to treat their air pollution issues.
Pharmacuetical Company Chooses the QUADRANT NRV Thermal Oxidizer
Faced with meeting the needs of their Pharma Industry MACT Standards, one Fortune 100 Pharmaceutical Manufacturer called on Catalytic Products International, Inc. The challenge for Catalytic Products International was to design a system that was able to process the ultra-high LEL (high concentration of VOC's) and deal with corrosive acids produced in the process off gas and the post-combustion gases.
Canadian Biofuel Manufacturer requires Air Pollution Control
This Air Pollution Control case study describes how a Canadian BioFuels Manufacturer utilized the QUADRANT NR Series Thermal Oxidizer to reduce its emissions.
Catalytic Products International Replaces RTO with a VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizer
This complliance resolution case study describes how Catalytic Products International replaced an ailing RTO with the VECTOR Series Catalytic Oxidizer
