Dürr Megtec offers a wide range of environmental solutions that include solvent recovery and distillation systems, thermal oxidizers, scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators, and fabric filters.
Carbon adsorption systems, both regenerative and non-regenerative, capture vapor-phase emissions of volatile organic compound (VOC) solvents from solvent-based processes. The solvents are stopped from entering the atmosphere, thereby meeting environmental laws and regulations. In a regenerative carbon adsorption system, solvents are adsorbed on activated carbon. When the carbon is saturated with the solvent, it is regenerated with steam and the solvent is recovered when the steam is condensed.
Dürr Megtec solvent recovery systems offer two key benefits–environmental compliance and reduced operating costs. Water miscible solvents can be purified onsite with our distillation equipment, making it possible to reuse them, which also yields a dedicated ROI. As for non-water miscible solvents, they can be reused without further processing.
Dürr Megtec regenerative and direct thermal oxidizers abate vapor-phase VOC emissions to meet the most stringent EU and global environmental emission limits and regulations. Our systems are used in applications where emissions are released from batch processes with vessel reactors, tablet coating, primary and secondary pharmaceutical processes, petrochemical, and chemical processes.
Stand-alone Dürr Megtec distillation systems purify waste water to make it suitable for disposal, thereby eliminating high disposal costs, or to separate solvents and purify them.
Our supply and installation scope includes turnkey operations with vent collection systems, vent conditioning with LEL dilution control, pre- and post-oxidation scrubbing for acid gas removal, flame arrestors, explosion relief, particulate removal, with the associated project HazOp, SIL reviews and project documentation packages to meet market demands.
