While both are a type of Thermal Oxidizer, the difference between a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) and Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer is how these machines use heat recovery during the oxidation process. RTOs combine hot exhaust gas with cool gas and passes this mixture through several heat exchanger chambers, typically made out of ceramic. A Recuperative Oxidizer passes exhaust through air-to-air heat exchangers that heat cool gas.Read More
What are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)?
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are chemicals in the air that becomes gaseous at room temperature and are the top cause of the air pollution most commonly referred to as smog.Read More
A thermal oxidizer is a process machine unit that reduces air pollution and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) by incinerating hazardous gas at extremely high temperatures until the VOCs are removed.
Buying a Used or Replacement RTO – What Questions Should Be Asked?
A Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (often referred to as RTO) destroys pollutants like Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and odorous emissions that are often discharged during industrial processes.

Process Heating is an industry leading publication written for engineers. Process Heating magazine publishes technical, how-to info about industrial heating equipment for manufacturing processes.
A core service that sets Kono Kogs apart from other RTO resellers is our ability to not only replace old or outdated oxidizers – we also offer removal of the existing oxidizer! When the timing of shipping and installation don’t align with your current operational schedule, we can help. We can prepare your RTO for outdoor storage until you’re ready to install. We also offer RTO shipping to anywhere in the United States and Canada – just contact us and let us know the details of your situation.
In an article published in the November 2018 issue of Process Heating Magazine we discuss the recent, proven advances seen in regenerative thermal oxidizer technology. Enjoy the article and call us with any questions. We would very much like to help you find an economical solution to your emission control needs: Repair, Upgrade or Replacement.
In any business, running efficiently and effectively is the key to success. An investment to address Pollution Control needs can literally make or break a company. Selecting the right equipment for your application is not difficult, however, a technology with a low capital cost can have operating costs and maintenance that will be an anchor for years to come.
At Kono Kogs our goal is to ensure that your facility is able to safely and effectively treat process emissions, such as VOCs and HAPs, at a reasonable cost. That’s why we offer a large inventory of warranty-backed, used and refurbished Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers. Our inventory is the largest in North America, and our 22 years of exceeding expectations have set us apart for reliability- we understand this is rare for used equipment suppliers, but we simply think that is the right way to do business.
Thermal Oxidizer and Catalytic Oxidizer Selection
Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer
Selecting the appropriate air pollution control equipment for a particular industry can be challenging to say the least. Though companies are experts in their field, they are usually not experts in regard to air pollution control equipment. That’s where Kono Kogs comes in. Our staff has over 75 years of experience applying, designing, installing and reconditioning thermal oxidizer systems, including:
