The regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO acronym) is the most widespread technique today oxidation for reducing emissions of volatile organic compounds or VOCs and is indicated to treat a wide variety of solvents and processes.

Tecam Group designs, manufactures, markets and installs equipment for the treatment of emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs through Regenerative Thermal Oxidation (RTO).

Solution designed for:

  • Air volumes from 10,000 to 100,000 m3 / h
  • Concentrations of solvents from medium to high
  • Treat a wide variety of solvents


  • Adaptable to low, medium and high air flows
  • Wide variety of Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs to be treated
  • Low operating and maintenance cost
  • High thermal efficiency
  • Does not generate any waste
  • Energy recovery generated for external processes

Technical characteristics:

The Regenerative Thermal Oxidation (RTO) equipment consists of vertical towers that contain a ceramic bed where the oxidation of the solvents takes place. The internal insulation of the tower and the combustion chamber, together with the use of the most evolved ceramic materials, result in low gas consumption of the equipment for the treatment of Volatile Organic Compounds emissions.

A conical shut-off valve system achieves a very high purification efficiency, thus preventing untreated air leaks. This exclusive valve system also allows the equipment to remain closed during the night or weekend shift, which allows the customer to maintain a high temperature inside the equipment and therefore an early start-up, with low equipment consumption.

  • Volume of air to be treated: 10,000 - 100,000 m3 / h
  • Maximum concentration of solvents: 11,000mg / Nm3
  • Concentration of solvents for autothermic operation: 1.3-1.7 g / Nm3
  • Operating temperature of the equipment: 750ÂșC
  • Maximum concentration at the exit
  • Long lasting ceramic
  • 200 mm internal insulation for energy saving
  • Thermal Efficiency> 95%
