What is a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer, why do I need one?

Posted by Therser Sales Team on 05-Jun-2023 15:12:05

A regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) is an industrial air pollution control system used to treat volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), and other volatile pollutants emitted by industrial processes. It is commonly employed in industries such as chemical manufacturing, paint and coating operations, printing, and pharmaceutical production.

The primary function of an RTO is to remove harmful pollutants from the exhaust air stream by oxidizing them at high temperatures. It operates on the principle of thermal oxidation, where the pollutants are subjected to elevated temperatures within a combustion chamber. The high temperatures cause the VOCs to break down into carbon dioxide and water vapor, which are environmentally benign.

The distinguishing feature of an RTO is its regenerative heat recovery system. It consists of multiple heat exchange chambers filled with ceramic media or structured packing material. The exhaust air from the industrial process is directed through one chamber, while a separate chamber is being heated. The ceramic media in the heated chamber absorbs the thermal energy of the hot gases, increasing its temperature.

After a certain period, the airflow direction is switched, diverting the exhaust air through the previously heated chamber. The heat stored in the ceramic media is transferred to the incoming air stream, preheating it significantly. This energy recovery process reduces the overall fuel consumption required to sustain the high oxidation temperatures.

The alternating flow pattern allows the RTO to achieve high thermal efficiency, typically exceeding 95%. This means that a large portion of the heat generated during the oxidation process is recaptured and reused to heat the incoming contaminated air. The energy efficiency of RTOs makes them cost-effective and environmentally friendly compared to other air pollution control technologies.

In addition to energy recovery, RTOs often incorporate other features such as automatic control systems, combustion chambers with multiple burners, and heat exchangers for process integration. These features help optimize the performance and reliability of the system while ensuring compliance with stringent emission regulations.

Overall, a regenerative thermal oxidizer is a highly efficient and effective solution for controlling air pollution in industrial settings, offering both environmental and economic benefits.
