Many process heating operations involve combustion, solvents, vapors and other hazardous air pollutants or volatile organic components. Heat processing systems such as oxidizers are used to destroy these.
Developed to help optimize ways to use FRP composites in corrosion-resistant applications, the Ashland Corrosion Science Center (ACSC) in Dublin, Ohio, supports corrosion applications based on fiber reinforced polymers (FRP).
Engineered product recovery/production systems can be used to recover scrubbed products and byproducts in applications in the chemical, fertilizer, metals, pulp and paper, petroleum, energy, electronics and general manufacturing industries.
With an 2012°F (1100°C) maximum operating temperature and a heated chamber volume of up to 1.4 ft3 (40 liter), the oven can be used for ashing petrochemicals, coal, food, plastics and other hydrocarbons.
