Applying the right emission control equipment for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry requires a thorough knowledge and understanding of the process and system requirements, combined with the ability to provide custom solutions. B&W MEGTEC offers a wide range of environmental solutions that include solvent recovery and distillation systems, thermal oxidizers, scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators, and fabric filters.
Carbon adsorption systems, both regenerative and non-regenerative, are used to capture vapor-phase emissions of volatile organic compound (VOC) solvents from solvent-based processes. The solvents are stopped from being emitted to the atmosphere, thereby meeting environmental laws and regulations.
In a regenerative carbon adsorption system, solvents are adsorbed on activated carbon. When the carbon becomes saturated with the solvent, it is regenerated with steam. The solvent is recovered when the steam is condensed.
Non-water miscible solvents can often be reused without further processing. Water miscible solvents can often be distilled and purified with B&W MEGTEC distillation equipment to make them suitable for reuse. Thus, our solvent recovery systems offer two key benefits–environmental compliance and an improved ROI - by reducing operating costs from the reuse of the solvents.
B&W MEGTEC regenerative and direct thermal oxidizers are used to abate vapor-phase VOC emissions to meet the most stringent EU and global environmental emission limits and regulations. Our systems are used on applications where emissions are released from batch processes with vessel reactors, tablet coating, primary and secondary pharmaceutical processes, petrochemical, and chemical processes.
Stand-alone B&W MEGTEC distillation systems purify waste water to make it suitable for disposal, thereby eliminating high disposal costs, or to separate solvents and purify them.
Our supply and installation scope includes turnkey operations with vent collection systems, vent conditioning with LEL dilution control, pre- and post-oxidation scrubbing for acid gas removal, flame arrestors, explosion relief, particulate removal, CEMs (continuous emission monitoring systems), with the associated project HazOp, SIL reviews and project documentation packages this market sector demands.
