Press Release Summary:
Cleanswitch(TM) RTO guarantees 99+% standard VOC destruction efficiency. Valve keeps treated air separate from dirty process air, so no significant amount of untreated air escapes when flow direction changes. By eliminating this puff of untreated air, it eliminates need for flush chambers. Under normal operating conditions, unit will run in a self-sustaining mode. No additional fuel is required to destroy VOCs.

Megtec Offers a Modular, Low Cost RTO
DE PERE, Wis., U.S.A - MEGTEC Systems recently introduced the CLEANSWITCH(TM) RTO (Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer). The CLEANSWITCH RTO offers lower capital costs, reduced energy use, and faster installation than conventional designs. The unit is the first RTO to guarantee 99+% standard VOC destruction efficiency without flush chambers. The key is MEGTEC's patent pending switch valve that gave the unit its name. The valve keeps treated air totally separate from dirty process air. No significant amount of untreated air escapes when flow direction changes. By eliminating the "puff" of untreated air, the CLEANSWITCH RTO eliminates the need for flush chambers.
The CLEANSWITCH oxidizer utilizes an economical modular design that provides exceptional operating economy with thermal efficiencies of up to 97%. Under normal operating conditions, the unit will run in a self-sustaining mode, meaning no additional fuel is required to destroy VOCs and achieve clean air compliance. Optional equipment to further increase the energy efficiency of the process is available including recirculation systems, hot-side bypass and secondary heat recovery.
The modular design approach also means that customers will realize significant savings in installation time and costs. Typical Installation of the CLEANSWITCH RTO requires only 1 to 3 days. In addition, the oxidizer is pre-assembled and pre-tested at MEGTEC prior to shipping for easy start-up. The CLEANSWITCH RTO is available in standard sizes which treat from 2000-70,000 scfm in a single system.
