General Oxidizer Information

Used Adwest Retox 6,000 Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) for sale

This Used Adwest Retox 6,000 Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) was manufacturing in 2008 and has a 6,000 scfm capacity. This used RTO is in very good condition internally, and somewhat UV weathered externally. This Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer treated emissions from a heatset web offset press. The oxidizer was off line in early 2019 and has been idle since. The RTO includes a two-chamber design, with random packed ceramic media and a dual poppet (switching) valve configuration.


Adwest Retox RTO systems are designed to provide one of the lowest utility costs (fuel & electric) of any leading oxidizer system. It is a simple RTO with over-sized beds to reduce pressure drop.
