Coupled with the drive to reduce energy consumption, any air pollution control system must offer high performance in VOC destruction and energy efficiency.
Oxidation is an effective technology for the destruction of VOCs. Essential combustion with minimal energy consumption can be achieved through use of the three Ts of oxidation: time, turbulence and temperature, together with the correct design systems and sufficient quantities of oxygen.
Technologies capable of achieving these objectives include; direct-fired, recuperative, regenerative and catalytic oxidisers along with combination concentrator/oxidiser systems for the most dilute streams.
The flow and concentration variability of the different types of process emissions further complicates the selection of abatement technology and necessitates a thorough understanding and evaluation of all possible controls.
