Glenro Offers New Catalytic Oxidizer

Glenro Offers New Catalytic OxidizerPaterson, N.J.-based Glenro Inc. now offers a new catalytic oxidation system that removes multiple solvents including aldehydes, ketones, alcohols, esters and non-volatile vegetable oil and odors from a process exhaust stream at a rate of 13.3 pounds per hour. The system reduces fuel consumption by running at a lower temperature than a direct-fired oxidation process, and by using an air-to-air exhaust preheat exchanger subsystem, according to Glenro. The system is designed to maintain catalyst temperature at 750°F to 800°F, ensuring complete destruction of solvents, oils and odors, thereby meeting air quality regulations.February 2002
