To control the exhaust emissions from its rotogravure printing press dryers, Maverick Enterprises Inc., Ukiah, Calif., has installed a new air pollution control system. The company chose a custom-designed system from CMM Group LLC, De Pere, Wis.
The system utilizes a 15,000 scfm regenerative thermal oxidizer. In operation, the potential air pollutants, commonly known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), are captured and sent to the oxidizer for destruction. The system is designed to exceed local, state and federal clean air regulations and can destroy greater than 95 percent of the VOC emissions generated from the production facility.
Maverick Enterprises prints and manufactures capsules made of laminated aluminum and polyethylene foil that are used to cover the tops of wine, liquor and food bottles.
