A thermal oxidizer combusts hazardous gases at high temperatures for air pollution control. They are used to destroy the VOC's present in many industrial ventilation, process exhaust and waste air streams.
Just as its name suggests, a "thermal" "oxidizer" HEATS the VOC’s and other volatile emissions to a certain temperature until they are OXIDIZED. This process breaks down these harmful particulates into water and carbon dioxide (CO2). Thermal oxidizers are very effective, with a more than 99% destructive rate, and are ideal for high concentration VOC applications.
