Pollution Control: Solvent Recovery

Solvent recovery systems recover and re-use solvents from manufacturing processes. Solvent laden air from the processes is passed through an activated carbon bed. When the carbon bed is nearly saturated with solvent, a steam-down cycle occurs to condense out the solvent for re-use. The carbon is then regenerated for another collection phase. Two carbon beds are used so that one bed can process the solvent-laden air while the other one is regenerating.

Pollution Control: Incineration/Flare Stacks

It is becoming increasingly important to reduce emissions while saving energy when using a pollution control device such as a flare stack. Proper flare stack design is essential to handle their multiple waste streams for maximum performance with minimum emissions. Since destruction efficiency and emissions (both visible and invisible) are some of the most important criteria to consider when designing a flare, when the design is done correctly, dramatic money savings will also be realized.

Pollution Control: Incineration/Oxidizers

A flame ionization detector at the outlet of the oxidizer ensures that it does not exceed emission levels. In addition, by using two flame ionization detectors, one on the inlet and one on the outlet, hydrocarbons can be measured and compared before and after processing, indicating efficiency.
