Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) is an electrochemical oxidation process that converts unwanted organic compounds into electricity using oxygen, hydrogen, and heat. In other words, it can be regarded as an electrochemical reactor. Rto’s molecular structure was developed to provide a high surface area to volume ratio and make it more efficient in removing contaminants from gas streams. This article will discuss the uses of a Rto regenerative thermal oxidizer.
Increased Efficiency and Productivity
Rto can produce hydrogen and oxygen simultaneously, which increases the efficiency of the process. In addition, it can also be used as an alternative fuel for steam reforming. When Rto is used as a fuel in steam reforming, it can increase hydrogen production by 50% and carbon dioxide by 20%.
Improvement in Quality of Products
Rto has been found to improve the quality of products such as methanol and formaldehyde. Through Rto’s electrochemical reaction, methanol is converted into formaldehyde, which contains less sulfur and other impurities. In addition, formaldehyde can be easily transformed into carbon dioxide or methane through a chemical reaction with steam and water.
Regarding environmental pollution caused by harmful gases such as SO2 (sulfur dioxide), NO2 (nitrogen oxide), etc., Rto can remove them efficiently without causing any environmental damage because it does not produce any harmful gases during this process.
Improved Steam Quality
In the steam reforming process, Rto has been found to improve steam quality by decreasing the amount of CO (carbon monoxide) and HNO3 (nitric acid) in steam.
