Two capital equipment suppliers have formed a partnership to provide industrial facilities with a single-source solution for dryer, oven and air pollution control needs.

After working together on multiple turnkey projects, Anguil Environmental Systems Inc., a Milwaukee, Wis.-based oxidizer manufacturer, and Spooner Industries, a convection dryer supplier located in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, have partnered to better serve each of their respective markets and regions.

Anguil regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs), as well as direct-fired, catalytic and thermal recuperative oxidizers are used for the destruction of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), NOXand odorous air emissions often generated from the drying and curing equipment manufactured by Spooner. By combining the complimentary product lines, processors can get a complete turnkey solution for their industrial drying, curing, coating and air pollution control needs. Anguil also can provide heat and energy recovery products to reduce operating costs and energy consumption.

Under the agreement, Spooner Industries will fabricate and install the Anguil oxidizer designs on air pollution control applications throughout Europe. They will work exclusively together for the supply of oxidizers for European converting, coating and printing operations. The systems will incorporate the proven designs of Anguil Environmental and the dependable fabrication of Spooner Industries. Spooner's new 60,000 ft2facility will be the primary manufacturing location for Anguil oxidizer systems going into Eastern and Western Europe. The local UK fabrication capability will allow Anguil to serve the European region without expensive transportation costs.

In the United States and North America, Anguil's service capabilities will be utilized for Spooner customers with emergency or long-term service needs. In addition, Anguil customers with dryer and coating systems will have the experience of Spooner's technologies through Anguil.
