Process Stream Characterization

In order to determine the most appropriate abatement technology available to best suit your plant, the process exhaust stream must be characterized and CleanCaps’ team of experts is here to help. The first step in By first characterizing the exhaust stream, CleanCap can is then use this data to establish the current operating parameters of the plant – i.e. volumetric flow, performance needs, volatile organic compound loading, and any other contaminants or conditions that might exist. From there our engineering team can recommend the best course of action to accomplish the goals of the facility as well as accomplish DRE improvements, heat recovery, and much more. CleanCap’s manufacturing team can build the perfect addition to your facility and our aftermarket services team can install, maintain, and troubleshoot your abatement systems.

By determining the existing operating conditions for the plant, a technology can then be selected based upon the major criteria associated with the equipment:

  • Initial Capital Cost for Abatement Equipment
  • Annual Operating Cost for Abatement Equipment (natural gas and electricity)
  • Annual Maintenance Cost for Abatement Equipment
  • Reliability of Plant Equipment vs. Plants Requirements for Process Run Time
  • Required Destruction Removal Efficiency (DRE) for Compliance with Regulations
  • Flexibility for Future Operation of the Plant’s Process
  • Hours of Operation

Oxidizer Products:

Emission concentrators greatly reduce flow with higher Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) concentration to be sent to a thermal or catalytic oxidizer for VOC destruction. The destruction device can then be much smaller in size, significantly reducing capital cost. The resultant higher VOC concentration controlled in the smaller abatement equipment minimizes auxiliary fuel consumption.

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers give you the ability to repurpose the thermal energy generated during operation to reduce operating costs and energy consumption of the system itself. The regenerative component makes it capable of fuel-free operation at very low VOC concentrations.

Utilization of catalyst inside the combustion chamber allows for destruction of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), VOCs, and odorous emissions at significantly lower temperatures than thermal oxidation technologies through the use of catalyst. CATOX’s are often less expensive to operate. 

Designed for quick startups on heavy laden emission streams or intermittent batch operations where the oxidizer can come on-line relatively quickly, DTFO’s are a great solution.

Thermal Recuperative Oxidizers employ a multi-pass metal heat exchanger to recover thermal energy from the oxidation process. This technology is uniquely capable of handling both emissions and providing heat energy back to the facility.

Vapor Combustion Units combine the simplicity of an enclosed flare with the destruction efficiency of a traditional thermal oxidizer to achieve superior performance in intermittent or continuous operating processes.

Deoxygenation uses a catalyst inside a pressurized vessel to consume excess oxygen from a gas by converting hydrocarbons in the gas to CO2 and water vapor.

Flares provide relatively inexpensive abatement of emergency vent gases and difficult to re-use fuel that is many times more harmful to the environment than the byproducts created.
