To the layman, the term ‘thermal processing’ might not mean much, but the truth is that everybody in the developed world has benefited from it in some way. It is responsible for much of our canned goods, for example. Thermal processing on an industrial level is also heavily involved in the production of cement, lime, titanium oxide, and other substances.

Thermal and Catalytic Oxidizers destroy Hazardous Air pollutants (HAPs), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and odorous emission that are often discharged from industrial and organic processes. Through the process of catalytic oxidation, it converts the pollutants to much safer carbon dioxide and water vapor. A catalytic oxidizer, also known as a Catox Incinerator, is a type of oxidation system that is similar in function to a thermal oxidizer but uses a catalyst to promote oxidation at lower temperatures.

The emission control industry appears to have created a stream of misinformation and untruths concerning the fuel cost comparison between RTO and RCO systems. Simply put, they do not tell customers that natural gas at 1600oF (870oC) has half the heat value than it does at 70oF (21oC). Customers pay for FT3 of natural gas, not BTUs. So when suppliers calculate a 1,000,000 BTU operating cost it is really a 2,000,000 BTU operating cost.
