Case Studies

RTO w/VOC Concentrator Treating Metal Decorating Emissions

Emissions at a new can making facility are being treated by a refurbished RTO/VOC concentrator system. The system consists of 2 refurbished RTOs and 3 VOC concentrators, all providing high VOC destruction and very low gas and electric powrer demand.

Catalytic Oxidizer Treating Metal Decorating Emissions

A 3 piece can maker replaced an aging catalytic oxidizer with a higher capacity catalytic recuperative oxidizer (catox) for their wicket oven. The solution provided had exceptionally low capital cost compared to new equipment, allowed increased process line speed, and now (in 2024) has provided over 20 years of reliable performance.
