The VECTOR line of catalytic oxidizers is designed to treat hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds (VOC), hazardous air pollutants (HAP), noxious and odorous emissions. No other manufacturer offers you the extensive knowledge - in both oxidizers and catalyst technologies - necessary to achieve the most complete and cost effective elimination of VOC's.
CPI designs each VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizer based on the exact needs of your application. With 43 years of catalyst manufacturing as a basis of our expertise, you can be assured that your VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizer will be designed with the most appropriate enzyme product for your needs. The VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizer is applied to a broad range of industrial processes. The VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizer combines a low-temperature oxidation catalyst, our unique primary heat exchanger, and an efficient combustion system all in a convenient integrated package. These systems are easy to install, provide very high removal efficiency, and offer very low operating cost. With zero moving parts in the reactor, the VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizer provides the highest uptime reliability.
Catalytic treatment of VOC's and other air pollutants works by reacting the harmful air pollutants over a specially designed catalyst where VOC's are converted to CO2, water vapor (H2O), and usable heat. These harmless byproducts are passed through a heat exchanger where the gas streams energy is transferred to the incoming exhaust.
The VECTOR Catalytic Oxidation Process starts by incorporating a booster fan to draw one or more VOC-laden exhaust from your process lines into the system. From there, your process VOC laden exhaust is directed to our unique stainless steel primary air-to-air heat exchanger where energy is transferred to the process exhaust before passing through to the preheat burner. The main heat exchanger can eliminate the auxiliary fuel required for operation.
A pre-heat burner is used to maintain the desired catalyst inlet temperature precisely. The burner is designed to promote mixing of the exhaust gasses with oxygen when fired through our specialized burner plenum. This innovative design provides the highest degree of flame impingement and high-velocity mixing, leading to airflow and temperature uniformity for which VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizers are known.
The pre-heated exhaust stream enters the catalyst bed and reacts with any of the specially selected catalysts where an exothermic reaction occurs, leading to complete combustion of the VOC's. The VECTOR Catalytic Oxidizer can be designed for use with VECTOR Catalytic Oxidation systems represent cost-effective air pollution control alternatives. The oxidation of hydrocarbons (VOC's) results in harmless byproducts, water vapor, and useable heat. The catalyst induced ionization level for most VOC's occurs at temperatures between 400 F and 750 F. This is sufficient to achieve conversion of VOC/HAP pollutants in excess of 99%.
Here the hot – cleaned exhaust is sent to the primary heat exchanger to give its heat up to the incoming exhaust gas for
Integrating all the major components into one unitized system saves on field installations, improves reliability, and lowers the overall costs of air compliance. The VECTOR System utilizes only the highest quality components. From the all stainless steel mixing and combustion chamber, the heavy-duty, heat exchanger, the specialized burner system, to the catalyst system, each component is contained within a well insulated, maintenance-free exterior designed for long life and low costs.
