FALCO 300 CATALYTIC OXIDIZER SPECIFICATIONS

 

FALCO 300 image

The FALCO 300 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 concentrations. Automatic shutdown results if temperatures exceed limits.

A spiral plate heat exchanger provides efficient heat recovery and a bypass valve allows for adjustment of heat recovery. Low heat recovery enables operation at high vapor concentration. High heat recovery minimizes energy use during operation at low input vapor concentration. At 780 ppmv (Gasoline) and 300 scfm, sufficient heat is recovered to preheat the inflow without supplementary electric energy.

The FALCO 300 has a massive catalyst volume for its rated capacity, providing longer life and poison resistance than monolith type catalysts. If necessary, the catalyst can be replaced on site in one hour.

The FALCO 300 is easily integrated with a wide variety of remediation equipment.
