FALCO 100 CATALYTIC OXIDIZER SPECIFICATIONS

 

FALCO 100 image

The FALCO 100 electric catalytic oxidizer treats air streams contaminated with volatile organic compounds. The catalyst provides VOC destruction efficiencies up to 99.5%. Operation, including startup, is fully automatic. Control system accurately regulates input loading and temperatures. The controls adjust a FALCO Vapor Control Valve (VCV) to maintain safe maximum input concentration. Automatic shutdown results if temperatures exceed limits.

A shell and tube heat exchanger provides efficient heat recovery and a bypass valve allows adjustment of heat recovery. High heat recovery minimizes energy use during operation at low input vapor concentration. Low heat recovery enables operation at high vapor concentration. At 1,050 ppmv (Gasoline) and 100 scfm, sufficient heat is recovered to preheat the inflow without supplementary electric energy. 

This compact unit fits into small spaces, making it perfectly suited for soil vapor extraction. The economical and durable FALCO 100 integrates with a wide variety of vapor extraction systems and is easily moved from site to site. The FALCO 100 has been installed at over one thousand remediation sites globally since 1990.
