Oxidizers for the catalytic abatement of solvents and odours contained in gaseous flows, with energy recovery .
Our company produces the catalyst for the catalytic oxidation of gaseous flows.
It is a monolith catalyst with platinum and metals of the platinum group, deposited very finely dispersed, on a ceramic honeycomb type support.
The catalyst facilitate the reaction between the oxygen of the air and the volatile organic compounds (with bad smells or harmful) contained into the gaseous effluent to be purified. With the use of our catalyst it is possible to reach very high destruction efficiency (close to 100%) of the volatile organic compounds which are oxidized into carbon dioxide and water, absolutely harmless.
By using the catalyst the oxidation reaction can take place at a temperature generally comprised between 200C and 400C, according to the organics to be oxized.
The structure by open cells of a monolyth catalyst makes very low the pressure drop of the gaseous flow across the catalytic bed .
With the catalyst it is possible to efficiently and economically purify gaseous flows from few till several tens of thousands of Nm3/h.
For modest flows (10%1000 Nm3/h) standard equipment are available, also portable.
Thanks to the extreme simplicity of installation it is possible to insert the catalyst in thermal combustion plants with direct flame already in operation.
The consequent fuel saving is such to pay-off the investment in a period of few months.
Particularly brilliant results have been obtained also in cases of direct-flame plants which were already using some energy-recovery systems.
The typical average life of our catalyst it is around 5-7 years with continuos operation. In some cases it's remarkably longer.
Our specialised technicians can operate on place with a pilot plant, with electrical or LPG heating system, for possible demonstrations.
In any case, they can suggest the best application of the catalytic system for any specific requirement.
It is available, upon demand, a wide specific technical handbook .
The operating temperature of the catalytic combustion with the catalyst is considerably low (about half) compared with the oxidation by direct flame, allowing a considerable reduction of the fuel consumption.
Compared with the direct flame combustion, the energy saving connected with the use of the catalyst can be further increased by an energy saving of primary and, secondary type.
The primary energy saving consists on the pre-heating of the cold flow at the entrance to thecatalytic plant by the purified hot flow; in some cases it is possible to achieve the self-operation of the catalytic combustion.
The secondary energy saving allows to produce hot air, hot water or steam or to heat a diathermic fluid. In this way energy is available to be used in other parts of the main process that originates the polluted flow .
