Epcon has extensive experience in designing and building Afterburners for the Chemical & Petrochemical Industries.

The Problem

A leader in Latin America's Chemical and Petrochemical Industry needed equipment to oxidize Hydrogen Sulphide and removal of SO2/SO3. The company went out seeking the technical solutions and went to several manufacturers to locate the best possible technology.

The Process

The chemical plant generates exhaust enriched with H2S, water vapor and air. Epcon has built several systems for Chemical companies for similar applications for removal of H2S and acid gases.

The Solution

Epcon evaluated several technologies and decided on an Afterburner with Quench and Scrubber as the best solution for this application. Other types of oxidizers can be used, but based on their small flow and high heat release from VOC's we chose an Afterburner. Epcon also designed and installed Quench & Scrubber system to remove SO2/SO3 and unreacted H2S from the outlet of the oxidizer.

The Benefits

On an ongoing basis, Epcon provides Preventive Maintenance Service to the customer and the system has been operating very successfully.
