What Are the Benefits of a Regenerative Catalytic Oxidizer?

How Does a Lower Oxidation Temperature Affect a Regenerative Catalytic Oxidizer?

The lower oxidation temperature correlates to less natural gas use. Regenerative catalytic oxidizer systems are primarily utilized for low-concentration VOC fluxes (less than 0.5 g/Nm3). However, heavy metals, Sulphur compounds, silicon compounds, or phosphorus compounds should not be present in these VOCs, as they could poison the catalyst.

The air is heated in the first tower of the regenerative catalytic oxidizer. After passing through the ceramic bed, the air reaches the catalytic bed, where it is oxidized at a temperature of 250°C to 450°C (depending on the organic compounds contained in the airflow). The now-oxidized air is routed through the second ceramic tower at the same time that the air to be treated enters the first chamber, to impart its heat to the ceramic medium. This cools the gas while simultaneously heating the ceramic bed.

The air, now free of contaminants, is sent up the chimney after passing through the second tower. Because all of the air must be oxidized during the valve sequence, the third ceramic tower is utilized to recycle the purged elements. To ensure that each tower is running in the same manner, the sequencing operation is performed every 45-90 seconds.

Benefits Of Using Regenerative Catalytic Oxidizer (RCO)

  • Thermal efficiency ranges from 95 to 97 percent (TER)
  • The catalyst was chosen to meet the needs of the application.
  • Efficiencies of up to 98 percent destruction (DRE)
  • Personalized Ceramic Media Bed Composition – Chemical Corrosion Resistant and Plugging Resistant
  • Poppet valve with a simple, fast-acting design
  • Organics do not condense on the poppet valve because the valve is hotter than the incoming gas stream, preventing accumulation.
