A Midwest-based two-piece, polymer-coated steel can manufacturer installed a regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) for the abatement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) generated in the metal decorating process.

This new RTO, designed and supplied by Catalytic Products International (CPI) is a duplicate of an existing RTO installed in 2017 as the facility continues to expand with new steel can processing and metal decorating lines. The new 7,500 scfm RTO destroys the incoming VOCs with continuous over 98 percent destruction rate efficiency and over 95 percent thermal heat recovery.

In addition to the RTO, exhaust stacks, booster fans and electrical installation, CPI provided the necessary engineering packages that were used by the manufacturer and its contractors.
