Thermal Oxidizers

Custom Thermal Oxidizer Manufacturer

Thermal oxidizers are process units typically used to destroy hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from industrial air streams. The pollutants are generally hydrocarbon-based and then destroyed via thermal combustion. Boardman's thermal oxidizers are the most energy efficient and cost efficient solutions for the reduction of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and odorous air emission.

Thermal Oxidizer Types:

Direct-Fired Thermal Oxidizer - the most basic type of thermal oxidizer (aka afterburner)

Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer -  incorporate a heat exchanger with a com-bustion chamber and can handle a wide range of process flow rates and VOC concentrations

Catalytic Thermal Oxidizer -  by using a catalyst bed in the air treatment equipment, oxidation is accomplished at much lower temperatures compared to thermal oxidation

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer -   type of thermal oxidizer that uses a bed of ceramic material to absorb heat from the exhaust gas


We have fabricated Thermal Oxidizers for refineries, natural gas processing plants, chemical and petrochemical plants.  As a custom fabricator, we have the unique ability to meet the expectations of many customers in many different markets.  Our focus on continuous improvement and gaining efficiencies allow us to provide the highest quality standards and provide savings to our customers.
