Relocation & Tie-In: Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer

February 22, 2022


A Fortune 500 customer needed to relocate a large regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) from their facility on the East Coast to a Midwest location. The Midwest location would utilize it to replace an aged catalytic recuperative oxidizer. Controls for the catalytic oxidizer were interwoven in the controls of several other oxidizers. Proper removal of the controls was critical to avoid unplanned disruptions to their tight production schedules.

Kono Kogs was hired to remove and relocate the Clean Switch RTO, remove and scrap the existing CatOx unit, and re-install the Clean Switch in place of the CatOx in the new location. Kono Kogs has moved or refurbished over 30 Clean Switch RTO systems. The catalytic oxidizer controls were de-coupled from the existing multi-oxidizer control logic. Kono Kogs also commissioned the RTO.

We provide everything related to regenerative thermal oxidizers including relocation, trade-in, field repairs, field rebuilds/upgrades, emergency service, preventive maintenance service, and replacement with our refurbished, warrantied long-life RTO systems. We have over 350 refurbished oxidizer units installed worldwide. Why buy new when you can buy better!
