Biofiltration Technology for VOC Emission Control
Tue, 04/01/2008 - 8:42am
The biofiltration-based Tri-Mer system combines the best characteristics of an in-bed bioscrubber and aerobic digestion with the high removal efficiency of micron-scale mist scrubbing. It treats high inlet concentrations of VOCs and is effective against a broad spectrum of VOC types: alcohols including methanol and other high-vapor pressure VOCs, more difficult VOC compounds such as turpenes and pinenes, and formaldehyde. The system is engineered to specific customer requirements but always focuses on MACT compliance. Its tower configuration has a small footprint that can be adapted to the space constraints of virtually any facility and is less expensive to install and operate than older approaches. It provides high removal rates on high particulate concentrations and heavy loadings of biological treatment products, without clogging the media beds. Media is permanent: no replacement of media or packing is necessary. The system is highly reliable with low maintenance and operating costs.
