Senior Application Engineer
Anguil Environmental Systems
As a Senior Application Engineer, Jason is responsible for the equipment selection and technical sales support on thermal and catalytic oxidizer applications. He has received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Physics from Grinnell College, and a Masters in Engineering of Energy Systems from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. He has spent the past decade in the air pollution control industry specifically focusing on abatement systems for volatile organic compounds and hazardous air pollutants.
Coating companies that are currently required to comply with air emission regulations for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) are accustomed to the high cost of compliance. However, new technologies and proven techniques are available to lessen the capital costs and operating expenses associated with these air pollution control systems. Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs) are increasingly used in a wide variety of industries for the destruction of VOCs, HAPs and even odors. It differs from the catalytic, recuperative and direct-fired vapor combustion technologies in that destruction is achieved with little to no auxiliary fuel required once the RTO is brought up to temperature. There are features, components and unique capabilities to the RTO that operators should understand before purchasing a new system or making modifications to an existing one. This presentation will address these topics as well as some of the process conditions and options that can affect destruction efficiency and operating costs.
