A regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) converts volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) to carbon dioxide and water vapor through thermal oxidation.
RTOs use regenerative heat transfer to achieve very high thermal efficiencies of 85 to 96 percent, which result in very low operating fuel costs — in some cases, zero. That makes them particularly economical for treating low-VOC-concentration process exhaust streams.
NESTEC engineers have designed, furnished, installed, and maintained RTOs for more than 40 years, with a combined staff RTO experience of over 300 years.
NESTEC RTOs are robust, have few moving parts, and are fabricated from materials that are chemical- and heat-resistant. They employ rugged industrial components from nationally recognized manufacturers. NESTEC RTO control systems are state of the art and PLC-based; we have experience with Allen-Bradley/Rockwell Automation, Siemens, ABB, GE, Modicon, Square D, Telemecanique. Panelview, and Wonderware. Design and programming are done in house.
