Regenex is designed to destroy volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in manufacturing process exhaust streams. Suitable for low VOC-concentration applications where a catalyst cannot be used because of catalyst-destroying chemicals in the solvent mixture, regenerative oxidizer consists of two or three heat exchange beds connected by a common combustion chamber. The heat exchange media allows air to pass while serving as a mass to store heat. The airflow through the heat exchange beds is reversed at regular intervals to conserve the heat of combustion within the oxidizer. Depending on the application, up to 95 percent of the heat combustion can be recovered and recycled.
