Combating fugitive emissions
In manufacturing, parts need to be perfect, but sometimes the circumstances surrounding production are less so. Often, in the emission and exhaust process, there is a margin of error. Although this margin of error may be small, it still has the potential to leave a business out of compliance with regulation and may even endanger staff.
Because of this potential problem, capture systems and total enclosures are necessary systems to ensure that VOC-laden emissions that escape the thermal oxidation process (fugitive emissions) never have a chance to leave the production floor.
Capturing VOC emissions
When it comes to purchasing new equipment, many companies purchase enclosures along with their thermal oxidation solutions. Not all capture and enclosure systems are created equal, oftentimes, manufacturers install new capture systems around existing ones, leading to suboptimal operating conditions and imperfect capture of fugitive emissions.
NESTEC provides the engineering support necessary to determine the required airflow, the structural and industrial ventilation design, and installation support to deliver a low-cost and fuel-efficient solution. The company ensures that these clean air systems operate the best that they can and keep companies in compliance.
NESTEC’s SMART capture systems and total enclosure options are all designed to meet or exceed clean air standards and are unmatched in the industry, having been installed in manufacturing businesses across the country.
