Thermal Oxidizer Repair - Thermal Oxidizer Insulation - Thermal Oxidizer Media - IndianaA thermal oxidizer (TO) is a process unit for air pollution control found in many chemical and manufacturing plants. TO's decompose hazardous gases at a high temperature, and release them into the atmosphere. They are more or less fancy incinerators. There are a handful of types of thermal oxidizers:

  • Direct Fired Thermal Oxidizer (TO)
  • Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO)
  • Thermal Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer
  • Regenerative Catalytic Thermal Oxidizer
  • Recuperative Catalytic Thermal Oxidizer

Ceramic Technology, Inc. performs thermal oxidizer repairs on a variety of different TO units located around Indiana and the Midwest. We offer 24/7 response time in case of any necessary emergency work needed due to hot-spots on the thermal oxidizer. We also supply ceramic fiber insulation and ceramic catalyst media to many customers with thermal oxidizers and offer full relines and turn-key repairs on these units. We have been able to provide a lot of cost savings vs. going back to the OEMs. Get a hold of Ceramic Technology, Inc. today!
