Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (commonly referred to as RTOs) are industrial pollution abatement systems that when utilized in the right application, can offer significantly lower operating costs compared to other emission control technologies. To ensure that this remains beneficial to operators, however, repairing and upgrading existing RTOs is essential.
Thorough upkeeps and routine upgrades combat system degradation that can occur over time so that your application isn't negatively affected by reduced treatment efficiency and effectiveness. In addition, repairing and upgrading existing RTOs and other air pollution control equipment is important steps in air permit compliance.
Our experienced field engineers and technicians are well trained and equipped to repair and/or upgrade your existing RTO. Some of the more common issues PolSys Services addresses are:
- Cleaning RTO media or oxidizer catalyst
- Replacing RTO media or oxidizer catalyst
- Replacing or Upgrading Burners and Gas Trains
- Diverter Valve repairs
- Corrosion control and structural repairs
- Duct replacement and flow restrictions
- Troubleshooting or upgrading operating controls including the operator interface, programmable controllers, and valve drives
- Tuning and re-programming existing software programs
Thermal Imaging Available
Our thermal imaging cameras translate thermal energy (heat) into visible light in order to analyze air pollution control equipment. These cameras are ideal for RTO system diagnostics, as they help determine the condition of key components like insulation or refractory in an oxidizer, or the machine health of fans, pumps, and motors. Hot spots show areas of weakness or damage so these issues can be addressed, reducing auxiliary fuel costs, avoiding more costly repairs in the future, and preventing downtime.
RTO Service Agreements
For maximum system reliability and production uptime, many of our customers with RTOs choose a Rapid Response Service Agreement. Plans are tailored to your needs and include routine and scheduled inspections, a set number of evening visits per month, guaranteed response times for unscheduled call-outs, and much more. If your facility is operating at or near capacity, these agreements can pay for themselves many times over in increased system reliability, safety and compliance.
Regardless of the issue you would like to address, our experience and knowledge of all types of air abatement technologies and processes allow us to assess your situation and quickly address any needed equipment repairs and upgrades.
