Automotive Thermal Oxidizers


Automotive: Specialized Paints and Coatings

Components manufactured for the Automotive In-dustry require coating with specialized paints and coatings that can withstand harsh environments within engines or outdoors.  The application and curing of the coat-ings generates Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and particle-laden residue (PM 2.5 or PM 10) that must be eliminated before releasing it into the atmosphere. Automotive Engine Testing also generates VOCs, and exhaust emissions need to be treated prior to release into the atmosphere. Pollution Systems offers Thermal Oxidizers and Catalytic Oxidizers that can eliminate this waste from the exhaust.

Applicable Oxidizer Systems for the Automotive Industry

Catalytic Oxidizers and Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers are two types of Oxidizers that are appropriate for treating the VOCs from paints and coatings, and exhaust generated by engine testing. Which one depends on the unique processing method of each facility.

Catalytic Oxidizers (CatOxs) are a good treatment option for processes that have consistent VOCs. Since a catalyst bed is used in the air treatment equipment, oxidation is accomplished at much lower temperatures as compared to thermal oxidation. An Electric Catalytic Oxidizer is another alternative for facilities that prefer electricity as the power source or decreased NOx and CO.

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs) use combustion to destroy the residue left from the coating process. They are most effective for vapors with low VOCs. Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers are energy-efficient as they use ceramic media to capture and re-use most of the heat from combustion to pre-heat the incoming process exhaust.


Oxidizer Systems Tailored to Achieve YOUR Goals

Pollution Systems can provide you with the appropriate type of Oxidizer technology and System Automation that will treat the targeted pollutants emitted by your specific automotive component coating application. We have designed and manufactured Thermal and Catalytic Oxidizers for coating applications for the Automotive industry and have the skills and experience to design an efficient, cost-effective solution for your Automotive Coating application or Engine Testing operation. 


Buying equipment from Pollution Systems is only the beginning, not the end. We design and build the systems and provide technical support throughout the life of the equipment. We also offer short, medium and long-term Rentals of our Thermal Oxidizers for industrial processing during the installation of new equipment, for extra waste processing during remediation, or for running pilot studies prior to purchase.
