Specifying Air Pollution Control
These air pollution control systems destroy harmful VOCs and air toxic pollutants contained in process exhaust fumes at elevated temperatures. The methods used (catalytic or thermal oxidation) ensure complete VOC/HAP destruction. New, more energy-efficient systems utilize high efficiency heat exchangers to preheat incoming exhaust fumes, thus further reducing operating costs.
Once a decision has been reached to purchase an air pollution control system, the company should select several experienced vendors and provide them with specific design specifications and details that can be used as a basis for preparing formal proposals. When requesting a proposal from a system manufacturer, it is best if the following information is made available:
Unfortunately, it can be difficult to understand the bona fide differences among different air pollution control system manufacturers' offerings. When evaluating a system for purchase, there really isn't any product testing that can be done to be reviewed, so purchasing decisions typically are made by relying on the vendor's credibility and on the assembled design data. The more thorough and precise your company can be in providing operating and design criteria, the more likely your project will culminate with an air pollution control system that will meet your individual needs and provide many years of trouble-free service.
