    Why You Should Get Proactive With Oxidizer Maintenance This Spring

    Posted by Jan Carlson

    Apr 27, 2017 7:57:18 AM

    Spring has sprung; the sun is shining longer, flowers and trees are blooming, and the snow is gone (well, in most parts anyway). Plans are being made for summer vacations, graduations, weddings, and oxidizer maintenance.

    How to Make a Positive Impact on the Environment This Earth Day

    Posted by Jan Carlson

    Apr 20, 2017 10:15:41 AM

    This Saturday, April 22, 2017, marks the 47th annual Earth Day. Earth Day was founded by US Senator Gaylord Nelson, who was concerned that environmental issues were not being addressed. He created the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, as an educational “teach-in,” with celebrations taking place at universities, primary and secondary schools, and communities across the United States. It is thought that over 20 million people participated in events that day. In 1990, Earth Day became a worldwide event, with over 190 countries and 200 million people participating.

    Optimizing VOC Combustion: A Case Study

    Posted by Jan Carlson

    Apr 14, 2017 10:58:45 AM

    Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are pre-cursors to Ozone pollution and subject to EPA regulations. Thermal and catalytic oxidizers are routinely used to destroy VOC emissions from a variety of industrial sources.

    Controlling Fugitive Emissions, Part 3: Temporary Total Enclosure

    Posted by Jan Carlson

    Mar 31, 2017 2:11:51 PM

    Fugitive emissions are what we call the uncontrolled release of gases into the atmosphere. This is something that happens regularly; in fact, fugitive emissions can be released when we fill our cars' gas tanks. The air that is displaced inside a gas tank that is being filled causes hydrocarbons in the form of gasoline vapor emissions to exit from the fill spout into the atmosphere in an uncontrolled manner. Some states seek to limit these fugitive emissions by requiring gas stations to use "Vapor Recovery" nozzles which capture this vapor and return it to the gas station's underground gasoline tanks, reducing the "loss" of gasoline and creating less air pollution.

    Controlling Fugitive Emissions, Part 2: Permanent Total Enclosure

    Fugitive emissions are the uncontrolled release of gases into the atmosphere. This is something that occurs regularly; in fact, it often happens when we fill our cars' gas tanks. The air being displaced inside the gas tank when it is being filled causes gasoline vapor emissions (hydrocarbons) to exit into the atmosphere in an uncontrolled manner. However, some states do require the use of "Vapor Recovery" nozzles to capture these vapor emissions and return them to the gas station's underground gasoline tanks, where the vapors become liquid again, reducing the "loss" of gasoline and creating less air pollution.

    Controlling Fugitive Emissions, Part 1: Close Capture Hooding

    Posted by Jan Carlson

    Mar 14, 2017 3:04:57 PM

    Fugitive emissions, in their simplest form, are the uncontrolled release of gases to the atmosphere. Each one of us may contribute fugitive emissions when we fill our automobile gas tanks. The displacement of air inside the gas tank causes gasoline vapor emissions (hydrocarbons) to exit out the fill spout (un-controlled) to the atmosphere. Some states require the use of "Vapor Recovery" nozzles which capture the vapor emissions, returning them to the underground gasoline tanks. The vapors then become liquid again, reducing the "loss" of gasoline, as well as removing hydrocarbons from the air, which means less air pollution.

    Identifying Your Ideal Air Pollution Control Technology, Scenario 3

    Posted by Jan Carlson

    Feb 23, 2017 8:20:24 AM

    In our recent blog, "What's the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?",  we examined the many factors that can impact a facility's choice of air pollution control equipment. When they are considering their air pollution control needs, it is important for the plant's engineering staff to discuss the application data with potential suppliers. This data will provide crucial details about the process operation, including as uptime, maximum VOC loading, and maximum air flow. With this data, the supplier will be able to predict energy usage, permitted emission rates, and other process operation data that may be critical to equipment design, and with this knowledge, they will be able to recommend options that meet the requirements for Best Available Control Technology (BACT) or Maximum Available Control Technology (MACT), ensuring that the facility's engineering staff will be able to meet or exceed their environmental goals or outcomes.
