How Does RTO Technology Work?

Equipment Technical Characteristics:

The Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers RTO consist of towers housing a ceramic bed and a common combustion chamber where solvent oxidation takes place. The towers’ interior insulation and the combustion chamber, along with the use of more evolved ceramic materials, result in low equipment gas consumption.

A conical closing valve system achieves very high purification efficiency, avoiding VOC emissions going out untreated. That exclusive valve system also allows the equipment to be closed during overnight or weekend shut-downs, hence allowing the customer to keep a high temperature inside the RTO equipment, and thus a faster start-up, with lower equipment gas consumption for VOC emissions treatment.

  • Air volume to be treated by the equipment: 1,000 – 100,000 m3/h
  • Maximum solvent concentration: 11,000 mg/Nm3
  • Solvent concentration for auto-thermal operation: 1.3- 1.7 g/ Nm3
  • Operating temperature of the equipment: 750ºC
  • Maximum outlet concentration
  • Long life ceramic media
  • 200 mm internal isolation for energy saving
  • Thermal Efficiency > 95%
