CLEANSWITCH Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer for VOC Control

The CLEANSWITCH® Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) provides simplicity and cost effectiveness in a 2-chamber, single vessel design. For many applications, the CLEANSWITCH® RTO will run in a self-sustaining mode; that is, no additional fuel is required to destroy VOCs and achieve clean air compliance.

Patented Switch Valve
The CLEANSWITCH® RTO valve utilizes a double-air seal and is the only moving part in the unit. The simple oscillating design promotes uniform air distribution and virtually eliminates pressure spikes, resulting in a smooth flow transition between heat recovery chambers. The innovative design makes the CLEANSWITCH® RTO unit the best solution for pressure sensitive processes.

Simple, Modular Design
Designed to reduce RTO complexity, the CLEANSWITCH® RTO provides cost benefits with its flexible, modular design and maintenance-friendly features. Units up to 65,000 SCFM are supplied skid-mounted for fast installation time. These units are 99% factory assembled for a simple and economical installation. A climate-controlled, skid-mounted control house is included for easy access to controls in any type of weather.
