DIRECT FIRED THERMAL OXIDISERS

Direct fired thermal oxidisers by Process Combustion Ltd. can treat very high concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) in waste gas and waste liquid streams safely and effectively. The waste streams, in some cases, can be injected through the burner system and be used as a fuel. Additional energy saving equipment such as waste heat boilers or secondary heat recovery systems can be added to recover heat back to your process.


Advantages:

  • Can handle very high VOC concentration waste gas and liquid streams.
  • Extremely high VOC destruction efficiency capability - up to 99.95%.
  • Can react quickly to high peak concentrations.
  • Can be designed to provide constant heat recovery back to your process.
  • Advanced control system design.


Overview
Direct fired thermal oxidisers produced by Process Combustion Ltd are most effective when there is a high calorific value waste gas or liquid stream that needs to be treated. Process Combustion Ltd can design and build these units to help meet the most stringent requirements of the European Solvent Emissions Directive (SED) and the United Kingdom Waste Incineration Directive (WID).
 

RECUPERATIVE THERMAL OXIDISERS

Process Combustion Ltd has a range of recuperative oxidisers that can be designed with a very high destruction efficiency capability combined with integral heat recovery systems to help reduce operational cost. Systems are supplied with a primary heat exchanger to heat the incoming air stream. Additional secondary heat recovery systems can be installed to heat hot oil, water or air required for dryers, ovens or space heating.

Advantages:

Can handle low to high VOC concentrations.
Very high VOC destruction efficiency capability - up to 99.5%.
Up to 70% primary heat recovery capability.
Secondary heat recovery can be provided back to your process.
Advanced control system design.

Overview:

Recuperative thermal oxidisers produced by Process Combustion Ltd can handle varying solvent concentrations. The high destruction efficiency capability means that they can achieve extremely low outlet emissions. Primary heat recovery enables the system to be energy efficient at low inlet concentration levels. The exhaust temperature of these units is ideal to heat hot oil or provide hot air for ovens or dryers. These systems can be integrated to help recover and provide the maximum amount of heat back to your process.
 

CATALYTIC THERMAL OXIDISERS

Catalytic thermal oxidisers by Process Combustion Ltd. operate at significantly lower temperatures than equivalent thermal systems. With the ever increasing cost of fuel, catalytic oxidation systems can offer a cost effective, energy efficient solution to your air pollution needs.


Advantages:
Energy efficient at low VOC concentrations.
Very high VOC destruction efficiency capability
- up to 99.5%.
Up to 70% primary heat recovery capability.
Secondary heat recovery can be installed to heat
water or air.
Lower fuel costs compared to other thermal
oxidiser systems.
Low capital costs due to reduced reaction
chamber size.
Compact and light, reduces space and civil
requirements.
Reduced start up time and flexible in operation.
Skid mounted for minimum installation time and cost.
Advanced control system design.


Overview:
Catalytic thermal oxidisers produced by Process Combustion Ltd require the process gas stream to be free from particulate, catalyst poisons and tarry materials that could mask the catalyst. Process Combustion Ltd engineers can select from several catalyst types to help maximise the removal efficiency of the VOC’s and help improve the life expectancy of the catalyst housed within the unit.
 

REGENERATIVE THERMAL OXIDISERS

Regenerative thermal oxidisers (RTO’s) by Process Combustion Ltd. can offer very high destruction efficiency of VOC’s combined with high energy efficiency. This high energy efficiency enables the unit to operate at very little or zero fuel input. Where the heat contribution of the VOC’s is significant, the RTO can release the excess energy and make it available for secondary heat recovery.


Advantages:
 

Can handle low to high VOC concentrations.
Very high VOC destruction efficiency capability
- up to 99.5%.
Up to 96% primary heat recovery capability.
Secondary heat recovery can be installed to heat
hot oil, water or air.
Extremely low fuel costs, even at low solvent
concentrations.
Advanced control system design.


Overview
Process Combustion Ltd can offer a range of RTO. From low cost 2 canister packaged units that come to site completely containerised to bespoke large multi canister systems with advanced features such as on line bake out and secondary heat recovery.


 

Vaporiser Systems

Process Combustion has many years' experience in the design and supply of a range of vaporisation equipment to convert cryogenic or fully refrigerated gases to their gaseous state. Such equipment will process LNG, liquid nitrogen or oxygen, and fully refrigerated petroleum gases (propane, ethylene and butane).

 

PROCESS COMBUSTION™ vaporisers can be permanent or mobile. Clients may be major gas utilities or engineering companies wishing to test 'process critical' equipment destined for offshore applications, before it is loaded out.


 

Process Heaters

In industrial processes where hot air, steam or heat transfer fluid is used for manufacturing or finishing, it is important to utilise a process heating system that is efficient, safe and accurately controlled.

In many applications the process stream can be heated directly without the need for an intermediate medium. Process Combustion can supply a compact solution to such heating needs.

Our range of process heaters are typically skid-mounted, cabin-style convective heaters adopting either 'once-through' or re-circulating hot gas delivery systems.

As with our oxidiser technologies, each enquiry is individually assessed and our equipment is custom designed to meet the unique characteristics of each application, in relation to:


 

Custom Designed Control Systems Overview

All combustion or heat transfer equipment must be controlled by a system that helps ensure safety and reliability. Unlike many combustion equipment suppliers, Process Combustion has in-house expertise to design, build, test and commission such control systems. This allows for the control system to be integrated into the main equipment package, and that it is correctly specified for the equipment.

The control systems and skid-mounted equipment is designed and manufactured in-house allowing for properly assembled equipment delivered to the customer, ready for simple installation. Normally units are trial assembled and functionally tested in the workshop in the presence of the client prior to delivery.
