Since 1988, Adwest has installed over 1400 flameless regenerative thermal oxidation devices around the world. It has provided thermal oxidation solutions with low cost and high benefit for clients (EPC turnkey project), which effectively reduces the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), gaseous toxic smog, acid gases and odorous gases.
The RTO operates as follows:
The VOC laden air is directed by the poppet valve mechanism to flow through one or more beds into the combustion chamber. These beds have been previously heated and because of the intimate contact between the air and ceramic material, very high rates of heat transfer are produced. This results in the air being preheated very close to the required oxidation temperature by the time it reaches the combustion chamber.
The air then enters the combustion chamber where a small amount of heat is added by a fuel-fired burner to combustion temperatures. The thermal oxidation process then takes place and the pollutants are destroyed.
The clean air then exits the combustion chamber through another bed or beds that have been previously cooled. As the air passes through these beds it is cooled by the same heat transfer process. After passing through the cooled beds the air exits the RTO system at a temperature only slightly higher than the inlet temperature.
After several minutes the first set of beds (inlet) becomes depleted of heat while the second set of beds (outlet) becomes saturated with heat. At this point the flow of air through the beds is reversed with the formerly inlet beds acting as the outlet beds and the formerly outlet beds acting as the inlet beds. In this way each bed periodically extracts heat from the clean gas stream exiting the combustion chamber then releases this heat into the polluted gas entering the combustion chamber. This method is thermal regeneration. The combination of thermal oxidation and regenerative heat recovery allows the RTO system to efficiently destroy VOC laden air with minimal operating costs.
As a global brand, Adwest uses highly advanced technology and the finest materials to create and distribute products for companies around the world. An unparalleled dedication to quality and dependability is why companies choose Adwest. Our proprietary flameless Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs) have been installed worldwide since 1998. Featuring state-of-the-art ceramic material to absorb heat from hazardous exhaust gas, Adwest RTOs can purify all types of exhaust particulates for a variety of industries. We are successful because of our versatility and commitment to innovation. Adwest provides technology for some of the largest companies in the world.
