FALCO 100 Catalytic Oxidizer with VFD controlled 2hp dilution blower
Vapor treatment for manufacturing and industrial processes with FALCO 100
The FALCO 100 with dilution blower and variable frequency drive is the ideal solution for industrial vapor treatment. Process vapors are captured and efficiently destroyed by catalytic oxidation.
Startup and operation are fully automatic. Temperature controllers accurately regulate inlet concentrations by adjusting dilution blower speed. Speed is increased during high mass flow of hydrocarbon and slows during low mass flow, or at standby to save energy. Automatic shutdown results if temperatures exceed limits.
The FALCO 100 has an efficient shell and tube heat exchanger. A bypass valve automatically increases heat recovery during low concentration operation and standby, and reduces heat recovery to accommodate high concentrations.
Components are mounted on frames joined by forklift beams. One frame supports the blower, VFD, and accessories. The second frame supports the FALCO 100. This low profile system weighs only 560 lbs and is 46” wide, 60” long, and 88” tall. This standardized package is easily installed and operated and can be integrated into a wide range of process vapor streams.
