Flexible Packaging Pollution Systems

Applying coatings to flexible packaging, such as potato chip bags, shopping bags and clear wrappers, requires processing to make sure the graphics are applied and dried correctly. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) are released during both the application and the drying processes, and they must be removed prior to discharge to the atmosphere. Pollution Systems offers a full line of thermal oxidizers and scrubbers that can eliminate these regulated waste components.

Packaging Pollution Systems

Thermal oxidizers use a combination of heat and time to treat the VOC’s from the exhaust stream, and can achieve destruction rates in excess of 99%. Recuperative thermal oxidizers are effective for exhaust streams with high VOC’s and particulate loadings. Regenerative thermal oxidizers are used for waste gas streams with lower VOC’s and exhibit high operating energy efficiency. Catalytic oxidizers are used with low, stable VOC concentrations, and are an alternative option for waste gas treatment.

Heat recovery equipment uses heat exchangers and blowers to capture the heated air from oxidizers and convert it to energy that can be used to reduce energy costs for running ovens, heaters and other equipment. The use of Pollution Systems’ heat recovery solutions can generate significant savings in energy costs.

We provide full support for our products, including maintenance and repair services. Our repair and maintenance services are available 24/7 and can be scheduled to minimize operational downtime. Pollution Systems also offers rentals and long term lease of our thermal oxidizers and scrubbers.

Pollution Systems can engineer a custom solution to provide you with a thermal oxidizer or heat recovery systems for your flexible packaging application. Our expert staff has the skills and experience to design an efficient, cost-effective solution.
