What is a Bake-Out, and Why Is It Necessary?
Field service and maintenance on pollution control equipment can be complicated. GCES prides itself on having one of the most capable teams of service experts in the field service, with over 75 combined years of industry specific experience. Our team understands the importance of a customer understanding their equipment’s specific needs. In their continuing commitment to extending the life of pollution control equipment for GCES customers, they regularly provide maintenance tips, based on their real-world experience.
A bake-out is a maintenance function that must be performed on a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer, in order to clean the media bed. The bed of the RTO accumulates process specific aerosols and particulates over time, which can cause alter the unit’s ability to function as it was designed to. Efficiency, capacity, and reliability of the unit may be compromised, if the ceramic media beds performance is inhibited. If left unclean for a prolonged period, the risks of fire, and total shutdown may become more prevalent.
A bake-out involves heating the ceramic media beds to a predetermined, extremely high temperature, in order to burn off all the accumulates. Temperatures may vary, depending on the design of the equipment. This area of the RTO can be difficult to manually access, so a bake-out is the most efficient way to remove and destroy these particulates. Think of it like the “self-cleaning” button on your kitchen oven. [Read more…]
We are going DARK!
Gulf Coast Environmental Systems will be participating in Earth Hour 2019. This is an event organized by the World Wildlife Foundation, that encourages participants to turn their non-essential lights off for an entire hour, at 8:30pm your time, on Saturday, March 30th, 2019. The goal of this global initiative is to speak up for the rivers, forests, animals, oceans, and all parts of the planet, in the crucial fight against climate change.
This is an incredibly important initiative for GCES; as pollution control equipment providers, we are passionate about our planet, and are proud to design and manufacture equipment that fights climate change causing air pollution.
Our mission statement:
“For the environment, and the economy, we are inspired to develop innovative solutions, to better the lives of our employees, customers, and communities.”
We encourage all of our team members, partners, clients, and followers to join us this Saturday, as we go dark. Our goal is to encourage the climate action conversation, and inspire those around us to take action to protect our planet.
You cannot turn on a computer or television, without seeing a story about climate change. Our planet is being choked by man-made emissions, and experts spend countless hours and dollars researching ways to reduce this plague, that we continue to bring upon ourselves. Changes have already been made in many industries, with hybrid vehicles, solar powered homes, and products made of recycled goods becoming ever more popular. But there are still huge questions when it comes to manufacturing and industrial fields. Nuclear power plants, steel companies, waste management facilities, coal mines… all industries that have come under fire in recent years, for producing dangerous emissions. The majority of recommendations to reduce these emissions involve cutting back on production, which could potentially have massive economic repercussions. But here is the thing, there is a simple solution, that has existed for decades. [Read more…]
