A Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) is a type of combustion device that reduces the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), and odours in the air by first converting the emissions into CO2 and H2O using heat before releasing them into the atmosphere.
Regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs) are devices with ceramic mass regenerative heat exchangers, which, because of their capacity to swiftly accumulate and release heat, provide a high thermal efficiency. They can implement plants with up to 96% yield because of this trait of theirs.
The Global Rotary Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Three Chamber Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) – TRITON III. Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs) from the TRITON III-Series are three-tower (or multiple tower) designed RTOs. Although these systems have a slightly greater initial investment, their advantages are realised since they can attain removal efficiencies of up to 99.9%.
The TRITON III-Series Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer is the ideal choice if this level of removal efficiency is necessary in some applications to meet regulatory requirements, corporate emission targets, or if odorous chemicals are a concern.
The PLC-based Temperature Safety System (TSS) of the TRITON-Series Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer is activated by pressing a button to start the process. The TSS control system automatically retrieves media temperatures, chooses the hottest bed to position the damper on, opens the fresh air purge/idle damper, activates the booster fan to purge the system with fresh air, ignites the burner, cycles the valves and gradually raises the system’s temperature to the proper operating level.
The TSS also keeps track of the temperatures in the regenerators, three different locations in the combustion chamber, and the input and outflow of the valve assembly. By doing this, the system is protected from the high temperature swings that can wear it out completely.
One or more VOC-rich exhausts from your process lines are drawn into the system by a booster fan. VOCs are then directed into one of the system’s regenerators, which is an internally insulated vessel with ceramic media, from that point. The first regenerator is used to treat contaminated gases. Here, heat is delivered from ceramic medium to the gas to raise its temperature.
The combustion chamber is then heated up to a temperature that is close to the ignition point for the majority of solvents. A small amount of heat is provided to the stream when it leaves the ceramic bed and passes through the internally lined combustion chamber in order to maintain the intended dwell time and proper oxidation temperature for the destruction of the stream’s VOCs.
After then, the second regenerator receives the oxidised gases so it can take in the heat energy. The second regenerator bed continues the energy transfer and oxidation cycle as the ceramic medium loads with enough heat, the Posi-Seal Valves switch, and the gases are reversed through the system before being released to the atmosphere.
