Despatch's VOC Thermal Oxidizer was designed to eliminate 99% of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from gasses exhausted during the drying step of solar cell manufacturing.
The solar cell manufacturing process creates unwanted environmental pollutants which are by-products of the drying process, and contain the non metallic ingredients found in the paste material such as ethanol, TexanolTM and terpineol. These pollutants can condense inside facility ductwork and create hazardous conditions. Destroying the VOCs using the Oxidizer eliminates the need to collect and dispose of this waste in a separate process. The exhaust exiting from the VOC Oxidizer contains only CO2 and water vapor.
In industries that emit VOCs and have established pollution control technology criteria, Thermal Oxidizers satisfy Best Available Control Technology (BACT), Maximum Available Control Technology (MACT) and Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER).
