Metal Packaging Pollution Systems

The metal packaging industry uses specialized processes to apply coatings to packaging, most commonly cans and boxes.  Paints, coatings, solvents and laminates release vapor with varying levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and particulate when they are applied and as they are dried or cured.  Pollution Systems offers a full line of thermal oxidizers that can eliminate this waste from the exhaust vapor.

Metal Packaging Pollution Oxidizers & Scrubbers

Thermal oxidizers use combustion to remove the pollutants from the exhaust stream, and can achieve destruction rates in excess of 99%.

Recuperative oxidizers are most effective for exhaust streams with high VOC and particulate concentrations, such as those containing solvents and specialty coatings.

Regenerative oxidizers are used for vapor with lower VOC and particulate concentrations and exhibit high energy efficiency.  Catalytic oxidizers are used with low, stable VOC concentrations, and are used for coating processes that do not release high levels of pollutants into the exhaust stream.

Particulate/Venturi scrubbers are most effective for residue with high levels of condensibles as a result of the drying process. Particulate scrubbers remove the particles by capturing them in liquid, causing them to drop out of the exhaust stream. With capture efficiency rates over 99%, these scrubbers produce clean exhaust for release into the atmosphere.

Heat recovery equipment uses heat exchangers and blowers to capture the heated air from oxidizers and preheat incoming air to reduce energy costs for running ovens, heaters and oxidizers. Integrating Pollution Systems’ heat recovery equipment with oxidizer systems can generate significant savings in energy costs.

For existing RTO’s, Pollution Systems offers a line of ceramic media that provide reduced pressure drop and is resistant to plugging.  We offer turn-key solutions to replace existing media including removing the existing media, effecting equipment repairs, replacing the media with new material, cleaning the site and bringing the equipment back on line.  In some instances, we may be able to clean the existing media in place and restore performance using our unique capabilities.    

We provide full support services 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.   Additionally, Pollution Systems offers rentals of our thermal oxidizers for emergencies or planned equipment outages.

Pollution Systems’ custom designs can provide you with a thermal oxidizer, particulate scrubber or heat recovery system designed and manufactured to meet the requirements of your metal packaging application.  Our experienced design staff will work closely with you to design an energy-efficient, reliable and long-lasting emissions control system.
