Process Combustion installed a thermal oxidiser and process heater unit for Dickinson Legg, a designer and manufacturer of primary tobacco processing machinery and plant.
The thermal oxidiser and process heater unit was specified for the manufacture of part of the tobacco drying machinery. The thermal oxidiser provides heat into the drying loop using a recycle heat exchanger. An exhaust stream from the drying loop is supplied to the thermal oxidiser, where it reaches a temperature of about 800°C to oxidise contaminents. Waste heat is also recovered.
The equipment supplied by Process Combustion included a thermal oxidiser chamber lined with ceramic fibre blocks; a dual fuel burner; fans; fuel gas and oil trains; a recycle gas heat exchanger and a waste gas pre-heater; duct-work; a skid base frame; and a burner management system.
