Thermal Oxidizers & Combustion Units
For any application and industry, we design combustion units and associated packages to help our customers to safely dispose hazardous compounds, contained either in gaseous or liquid wastes, resulting into clean gaseous flue gas emissions fully complying with the most rigorous standards and most stringent environmental regulations worldwide.
GBA is committed to reduce the Carbon footprint on the planet, and therefore all our units are designed to be smart, highly energy-efficient, always operated with minimum consumptions of plant’s utilities, such as fuel gas, electricity, steam, instrument air, etc.
Our thermal oxidizers can be equipped with staging systems to lower the unit’s turn-down and thus support gas consumptions as well. They can be associated to downstream recuperative sections, such as, for instance, waste heat boilers, steam generators, oil heaters, air pre-heaters, etc. and other heat recovery solutions.
SRU Tail gas incinerators, SRU Claus Reaction Furnaces, Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs), Vapor Combustion Units (VCUs), Catalytic oxidizers, Combustors, and Enclosed Flares are just some examples of our wide product line for combustion units.
To comply with the most stringent regulations, our burners can be designed for low NOx and – when required by process conditions – flue gas treatment packages, such as de-NOx systems, quenchers and scrubbers, etc. can be designed and supplied through our system integrators and included in our packages upstream flue gas stacks.
GBA thermal oxidizers can provide high destruction efficiencies (99.99% or higher, depending on regulations), low NOx, ultra-Low NOx burners, nearly zero emissions of VOCs, CO, H2S, Mercaptans, and flue gas treatment packages, which may include de-NOx systems (SNCR, SCR), filtration units, scrubbers to remove Sulfur Dioxide, HCl, Cl2, and other chemicals.
Combustion may take place in forced draft, natural draft, or induced draft design choices, in a vertical or horizontal configuration. To better handle liquid streams, vertical down-firing option is also available.
In presence of forced draft systems, we can include rotating equipment (fans, blowers) that complies with API 673, AMCA and a variety of other codes, directives, and international standards.
GBA’s technology for burners and pilot burners is well-proven, constantly up to date with the latest technological R&D’s advancements, and designed to combine at the same time a top-class reliability & availability, with very low emissions and fuel gas consumptions.
For structural verification of vessels, structures, and other items, we provide equipment that complies with Eurocodes, ASCE, ASME (ASME VIII Div. 1, ASME I, ASME STS-1, etc.), GOST R, CICIND, or a variety of other codes.
