As you can see, adding a catalyst to a thermal oxidizer requires a lot of specialized knowledge and engineering skill to set up an effective thermal oxidizer system that destroys the VOCs and HAPs quickly, completely and at the lowest possible cost.
At Epcon, our project engineers can help select the best possible setup–whether it is a recuperative thermal oxidizer, a regenerative thermal oxidizer, or some other configuration–to process the VOCs. Because Epcon’s engineers have experience working with catalyst manufacturers all over the world, they know how to pair the right catalyst with the right thermal oxidizer equipment to help reduce your operating costs.
Many thermal oxidizers are designed without the use catalysts, as the cost to install and replace the catalyst in the system can be very expensive. However, sometimes a catalyst is necessary or produces the optimal solution to a unique process stream. Our engineers carefully assess the process and application, and then evaluate all options through engineering and cost studies to determine if a catalytic thermal oxidizer is the best solution for the customer’s operating needs.
