Since the inception of the 1990 Clean Air Act, thermal oxidation systems have continued to play one of the most important roles in VOC destruction and removal, due to its ability to destroy the VOC’s in a one-step process while producing innocuous by-products.
A properly designed thermal oxidizer system can achieve VOC destruction and removal rates greater than 99.99%.
Other advantages of thermal oxidation include:
-Ease of operation and control
-Ability to be altered for process variations
-Elimination of by-product disposal
-Number of process components
-Ability to be applied to more than 80% of the CAA Air Toxics
