The VECTOR-NR Series catalytic oxidizers are designed to treat hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds (VOC), hazardous air pollutants (HAP), noxious and odorous emissions. The system is a low cost catalytic oxidizer that does not incorporate a primary heat exchanger. Especially well suited to applications with high inlet temperatures where a primary heat exchanger does not offer a fast return on investment.
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-NR Series Catalytic Oxidizer will be designed with the most appropriate enzyme product for your needs. The VECTOR NR Series Catalytic Oxidizer is economically applied to a broad range of industrial processes. The VECTOR NR Series Catalytic Oxidizer combines a low-temperature oxidation catalyst and an efficient combustion system all in a convenient integrated package. These systems are easy to install, provide very high removal efficiency, and offer low capital costs.
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 inert byproducts, water vapor (H2O), and usable heat. These harmless byproducts passed through a heat exchanger where the gas streams energy is transferred to the incoming exhaust.
VECTOR NR Series Catalytic Oxidation systems represent cost-effective air pollution control alternatives. When compared to thermal oxidation, their lower operating temperatures (400°F - 750°F) reduce operating costs, save on fuel, and extend equipment life. Each is designed and fabricated for your particular application; each system utilizes materials and metallurgy that will afford the highest performance, longest life, and economical procurement.
The VECTOR-NR Series 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 preheat burner. The 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 heater plenum. This innovative design provides the highest degree of flame impingement and high-velocity mixing, leading to airflow and temperature uniformity for which VECTOR-NR Series 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-NR Series Catalytic Oxidizer can be designed for use with several different styles of catalyst; Monolith Elements and Pourable Beads are the most common types of catalyst. 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%.
CPI has concentrated our more than 43 years of experience, knowledge, and innovative air pollution control solutions to offer the world a high-quality line of catalytic oxidizers designed to meet the most stringent compliance requirements. VECTOR-NR Series Catalytic Oxidizers meet today's environmental challenges by using the most cost effective manufacturing techniques to bring to industry reliable pollution control systems that offer lower capital costs, simplified installations, and minimal maintenance.
VECTOR System's exceed today's air pollution control needs with:
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 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.
Each VECTOR System is custom engineered and built for maximum performance and flexibility. Therefore, the catalyst is selected based on the ability to provide the highest performance and longest life. The catalyst choices can include platinum group metals on a pourable bead or a monolith support. Each group offers individual benefits for each application. For beaded catalyst products, poison-resistant catalyst provides resistance to many common contaminates while low-temperature formulations allow minimal fuel input. The most noticeable advantage about VECTOR Systems is found in the innovative, split-bed containment system. The catalyst is contained in a specially developed catalyst tray that offers partial catalyst replacement, faster inspections, cross-sectional analysis, and longer life. Monolith Catalyst groups are used for general industrial applications or for specialized emissions such as halogenated VOCs and others.
