- Increasing number of industries and up surged production activities has intensified the demand for regenerative thermal oxidizers.
- Limited reach and less industrial awareness in developing and underdeveloped economies may act as a restraining factor.
- North America and Europe are estimated to be promising market for regenerative thermal oxidizers.
Regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) is a type of industrial equipment which is used in the treatment of exhaust air. Regenerative thermal oxidizer is comprised of bed of ceramic materials which absorbs the heat from the emitted exhaust gas. Regenerative thermal oxidizer utilizes the absorbed heat for pre-heating the incoming process stream and destroys air pollutants present in the exhaust stream. RTO destroys the existing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) in the exhaust stream which are produced through chemical and industrial process.
Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer requires high heat about 815 °C for the cleaning of hazardous pollutants and compounds present in exhaust fumes. RTO system is slightly complicated and with more moving parts and components. In comparison with other emission control equipment regenerative thermal oxidizers are more reliable and possess high energy efficiency and low operating cost. The basic operation of regenerative thermal oxidizer is to pass hot gas stream over heat sink material in one direction and to recover that heat by passing a cold gas stream over that same heat sink material in alternating cycle. Regenerative thermal oxidizers are finding crucial roles in various industries such as chemical, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, mining, refractories and foundries amongst others. Rotary regenerative thermal oxidizer and Compact type regenerative thermal oxidizer are the two types of RTOs available in the market.
Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer Market: Dynamics
Rapidly growing industrialization has led to the advancement of various industries across the globe. Increasing number of industries and up surged production activities has intensified the demand for regenerative thermal oxidizers. Growth of chemical and pharmaceutical industry in developing regions is positively influencing the demand for regenerative thermal oxidizers.
Implementation of stringent government regulations like surrounding workers safety and pollution control laws regarding the VOC and HAP emissions, levied on emerging and developed economies are estimated to drive the growth of regenerative thermal oxidizer market. Limited reach and less industrial awareness in developing and underdeveloped economies may act as a restraining factor for regenerative thermal oxidizer market. Also, the availability of alternative pollution control equipment such as bio-filters and bio-scrubbers might hinder the growth of regenerative thermal oxidizer market. Some of the manufacturers engaged in the regenerative thermal oxidizer market provide customized products designed according to the consumer demands.
Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer Market: Regional Outlook
Growing urban population and industrialization in Asia Pacific region has led to an increase in the industrial production activities.
