Video: What exactly is a thermal oxidizer and how does it work?

Our latest video breaks down this technology and explains how this device achieves safer facility emissions across various industries.


Pollutants like VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) are emission issues that must be treated before being released into the atmosphere. A common treatment method of these compounds is a thermal oxidizer. A thermal oxidizer heats the VOC’s to a certain temperature until they are oxidized. The oxidation process breaks down the harmful particulates into carbon dioxide and water. Thermal oxidizers are ideal in applications where particulates may be present and where there is a higher concentration of VOC’s.

Thermal oxidizers are very effective (with a greater than 99% destructive rate) though they are not always the most efficient systems. Integrating a heat exchanger, however, modifies the process to recuperate the heat that is being released so that it reused within the system to reduce operating cost and increase efficiency. Designing the right system for your configuration is key.
