United Kingdom-based AirProtekt received four major emission control contracts from U.K.-based manufacturers during the last year. Two of the contracts, which involved supplying customized regenerative thermal oxidation (RTO) systems, already have been installed and commissioned.
AirProtekt has equipped SGL Technic's carbon fiber manufacturing facility in Muir of Ord, near Inverness, Scotland, with a combined oxidizer system and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system to remove hydrogen cyanide (HCN) contaminants.
The second RTO system was supplied to Johnson Controls' Wednesbury facility in the West Midlands, which produces car seats for major automotive vehicle manufacturers. The oxidizer equipment was tailored to remove naphtha and other volatile organic compounds waste products from the processing of the polyurethane foam at the West Midlands plant.
The two other major contracts focus on supplying the company's Honeycat catalytic oxidation systems that have platinum group metal catalysts. One Honeycat catalytic oxidation system is currently being installed at a coated laminate film manufacturing facility in Basildon, Essex, operated by Neschen Coatings. The second is being fitted at Permali Gloucester's manufacturing plant in Gloucester, where Permaglass composite materials are produced.
For all the projects, Cambridge-based AirProtekt provided a total package solution that included process assessment, project design, supply of the air pollution equipment, installation and commissioning. The company also will provide complete after-sales service.
