As part of a study, my team is investigating some options for VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) destruction. A regenerative thermal oxidizer is the facility’s main means of VOC destruction and we’re exploring some back-up options right now (in use <10% of the time, for example). My first thought is to use a flare…though I don’t have much direct experience with them.
A bit of an open-ended request here, but any insight or experience anyone can relate utilizing flares for VOC control would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
