CECO Adwest 36000 Retox Used Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO)


Used Adwest Retox 36,000 Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) for Sale Immediately

Manufactured in 2003, this Adwest 36,000 Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer has a 36,000 scfm capacity. In its past life, it treated emissions from rotogravure printing applications. This RTO machine was running until 2010, and it has been idle ever since.  The Used Adwest Retox 36,000 has a two-can design random packed ceramic media and a dual poppet (switching) valve configuration.


This RTO is in very good condition internally, though externally it is moderately UV weathered and could use some paint. Adwest Retox RTO systems like this 36,000 RTO 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. The fuel injection feature has been a main-stay for Adwest RTO units, more than any other OEM in our inventory or available, with significant fuel savings possible. However, fuel injection can be disabled simply and the unit run on the integrated, traditional nozzle mix burner.
