Dürr Megtec Epsilon® Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO)

Epsilon® Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO)

The Epsilon® RTO from Dürr Megtec is a modularized multi-canister oxidizer offering a highly flexible design that makes it appropriate for many applications.

Epsilon® RTO benefits

RTOs are proven to be thermally efficient volatile organic compound (VOC) emission control systems. The Epsilon® RTO features an innovative compact design that is engineered to deliver low operating and capital costs, and guaranteed VOC destruction efficiencies.

  • Tailored heat-exchange media designed for optimized thermal efficiencies, minimized pressure drop and organic/inorganic contaminants.
  • Highly reliable poppet valve design with 15+ years of field application.
  • Destruction efficiencies of 99.8% to meet the most-stringent global emission codes.
  • Optional hot-side bypass system for use with high solvent load applications.
  • Ceramic media bake-out cleaning for removal of organic deposits, with smoke-free emission options.
  • Optional secondary heat recovery for hot water, thermal oil, steam, electricity generation or adsorption cooling.
  • Multiple fuel options such as natural gas, butane, propane and oils.
  • Optional fuel gas injection systems.
  • Variable cycle time and temperature profile control for process-harmonized operation.
  • Heavy-duty construction with independent canisters for long operation. 

Epsilon® RTO Application Areas

In applications where a multi-canister oxidizer is required, the Epsilon® RTO from Dürr Megtec can be configured with three (3), five (5) or more canisters. The Epsilon® RTO features a modular, highly flexible design to meet specific performance criteria. With its innovative compact design, the unit delivers effective VOC destruction with low operating and capital costs. Read more about the Epsilon® RTO.
