Recuperative Thermal Oxidizers

VOC abatement using Recuperative Thermal Oxidizers is appropriate in many process applications including processes where particulate may be present, with higher Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) concentrations or even where a large amount of heat energy may be needed somewhere else in your facility.

Pollution Systems’ designs are able to incorporate many energy-saving options including the use of preheated combustion air, a secondary heat exchanger and sophisticated burner controls. Pollution Systems will work closely with you to understand the trade-offs between initial capital investment and the expected savings in operating costs. If you are looking to repair your existing recuperative thermal oxidizer, our technical services division PolSys Services can assist in repairing the make and model of any oxidizer system

Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer Applications

These systems incorporate a heat exchanger with a com-bustion chamber and can handle a wide range of process flow rates and VOC concentrations. The heat exchanger is used to preheat the VOC laden air prior to entering the combustion chamber to reduce operating cost.

Recuperative Thermal  Oxidizers are:

  • Ideal for Moderate VOC concentrations
  • Suitable for Secondary Heat Recovery
  • Typically able to achieve destruction efficiency in excess of 99%   
  • Capable of thermal efficiency up to 80%

There are several industrial processes used by companies world-wide where a Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer makes sense. Some of those processes are utilized by the Oil, Gas, LFG, and Chemical Industries as well as Corn Processing and other manufacturing facilities, just to name a few. Recuperative Thermal Oxidizers can be used in odor control applications as well. 


Here is our latest case study on how our Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer Model #TO-5 RHE treated the VOC emissions from multiple waste streams while providing significant energy savings for an LFG Facility:
