Thermal Afterburners

Afterburners are the simplest type of Thermal Oxidizer. These environmental systems are also called Direct Fired Thermal Oxidizers, Enclosed Flares or Vapor Combustors and are used to destroy industrial pollutants.

Afterburners are recommended for use when there is a very high concentration of VOCs in the process air. Applications include: food and coffee processing, foundries, pulp & paper manufacturing, metal treatment, ect.

During the thermal combustion process, the pollutants are chemically changed into harmless combustion by-products, water and carbon dioxide, both of which can be discharged through the exhaust.

S&B direct fired thermal oxidizers (afterburners) are designed to be easy to use and install, among the features offered are:

  • Skid mounted packaged units are prepiped, prewired
  • PID digital temperature control, FM approved high temp limit, flame safety relay, main power disconnect, and control transformer. UL 508A priced per request.
  • Remote control interface capability for use with PLC or DCS systems available.
  • Built to meet your requirement (FM, CE, GAP, NFPA or CSA construction standard).
  • In-House test firing and tuning prior to shipment reduces start-up and installation costs.
