A Comparison of Ceramic Fiber Modules and Fire Clay Castable
Oxidizers treat VOCs, HAPs, and other air contaminants based on proven technology and history. Engineering these systems to the next level allows them to process vapor laden streams with much greater efficiency and lower equipment operating costs. One of the ways to improve on the costs of operating these GCES systems is by properly insulating the combustion chambers with the most effective and efficient insulation materials.
The combustion chamber serves two purposes within the system. Purpose #1 is to input the required heat energy to bring the process and combustion air up to the required operating temperature with the burner firing into the chamber. Purpose #2 is to retain the process stream at the operating temperature for the required time in order to achieve the desired destruction efficiency – this is typically called the residence time. There must be a layer of insulation to account for heat loss during the combustion process. The proven material of insulation is the ceramic fiber module.
