Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Removal

 

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are substances with a low boiling point which causes them to evaporate or sublimate at room temperatures and become present in the air around us. They are produced from chemical processes and may be harmful.

TPG has developed a VOC removal unit that uses regenerable ceramic carbon monoliths to adsorb and liquefy VOCs. This technology has low running costs and is compact in comparison to alternative technology such as activated carbon or oxidation technology. 

The innovative part of this technology is that it uses a low energy compact Temperature Swing Adsorber. Commonly found VOCs are alcohols from solvent processes but the process can be adjusted to suit other species or compounds. 

Air flow rate

10 to 500m3/hour

Removal rate

≥95% on single pass – post process clean up available

Applicable VOCs

Typically methanol or ethanol, other solvents possible

Carbon monoliths
