Catalytic Combustion Corporation manufactures RTOs and other thermal oxidizers at the CCC facility in Bloomer, WI. Thermal oxidizers can be direct thermal oxidizers with no energy recovery, recuperative thermal oxidizers, and regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs). Modular and skid mounted equipment is standard on smaller designs. Typical operating temperatures are 1400-1600°F. CCC designs and builds both standard equipment and custom models.
CCC has two standard thermal oxidizer product lines: VGTO and HGTO. VGTO (vertical gas-fired thermal oxidizer) standard sizes range from 250-1500 scfm. HGTOs (horizontal gas-fired thermal oxidizers) are similar, but have a horizontal combustion chamber. Destruction efficiencies of 99%+ can be achieved.
RTOs are the latest in oxidizer technology. Very high energy efficiencies of up to 95% can be reached. This is done by preheating incoming airstreams with the heat in the oxidizer treated exhaust air. Destruction efficiencies of 95-98% are typical.
