VOC Removal for Solvent Recovery Plant

Simdean Envirotec have recently installed and commissioned a VOC removal system on the exhaust air stream from a Solvent recovery plant based in Northern Ireland. The gas stream is extracted from the process at ambient temperature from both vacuum pump exhaust and general ventilation form around a solvent boiler.


VOC Removal for Solvent Recovery Plant

The 3000 m3/h air stream is collected in
various points from around the solvent boiler and is eventually combined into a
single stream where it is fed via an exhaust fan to the VOC adsorber.. The
adsorber consists of a vertical cylindrical vessel in which activated carbon is
retained between two perforated screens forming an annulus. Monitoring of the
exhaust is  possible via sampling  ports to determine the operation of the
system and life of the activated carbon.

The
adsorber body has been raised above the floor level to allow for easy
replacement of the carbon with outlet ports fitted which facilitate quick
removal of the carbon from the adsorber during replacement. Simdean can produce
single vessel carbon adsorbers for both odour and VOC control for flow rates up
to 50,000 m3/h. and systems capable of treating up to 250,000 m3/h
are available

The adsorbers can be supplied either as modular units or
complete prefabricated systems which include extract fan, particulate filter,
ductwork with grilles and dampers, activated carbon and the canister.  Simdean’s quality system meet the requirements
of ISO 9001 and the adsorber and equipment are manufactured in accordance with
appropriate design and construction codes. The principal codes followed include
BS 4994, BS  EN 12573 & BS EN 13280
