EX IFTO MODEL
The thermal breakdown of materials in the EX Reactor results in the formation of “gaseous byproducts”, or what is more commonly referred to as “pyro gas”. The pyro gas consists of a number of breakdown components and generally has a calorific value. The controlled feed of the solid materials into the first stage results in a constant flow of pyro gasses into the thermal oxidizer, and the subsequent destruction of the pyro gas.
The EX IFTO consists of a multi stage chamber used to drive the primary conversion of the pyro gas to carbon dioxide and water vapor. The typical operating temperature range for the IFTO is expected to be between 1,500°F (815°C) to 1,800°F (980°C).
Higher temperatures can be achieved should it be required for difficult compounds. The system used in this design was built using ceramic fiber insulation on the inside. This is a rather light weight material, and has a relatively long life, whereas the old refractory would tend to fail over a period of years by attrition of expansion and contraction. The IFTO is the first line of pollution control. Standard models offered have the following throughputs:
