Case Study: Heating Process Water With Oxidizer Exhaust: 9-Month Payback And Environmentally Green


By David Swinehart, VP of Engineering, Controlled Environment

Several years ago, Controlled Environment was commissioned for an energy recovery project involving the recovery of VOC emissions from a regenerative oxidizer with a temperature of 250° F using an air-to-water energy recovery system. The quantity of VOC's in the airstream was sufficient to allow the oxidizer to be self-sustained (it did not need auxiliary fuel to operate.)
