Fugitive emission-control unit
EP Editorial Staff | May 1, 2020
A fugitive emission-control unit is said to eliminate harmful emissions exiting from analyzers and GC vents to meet environmental compliance while avoiding the need for gas flaring associated with air contamination.
Through a catalytic combustion process, the product oxidizes the vented sample, converting hydrocarbons to CO2 and water vapor, while maintaining a stable outlet vent pressure to the atmosphere. The process avoids back-pressure on analyzer vents, which can disrupt analytical instrument. Using a continuous heat source, the unit maintains an oxidation process that is reportedly effective on 99% of fugitive emissions.
