Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer
What is a regenerative thermal oxidizer?
A Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) is an industrial-grade air pollution control device that use high temperatures to combust and decompose volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into CO2 and water vapor.
Also known as an RTO, a regenerative thermal oxidizer heats the VOC-laden process exhaust gas to temperatures in the range of 1400-1500°F.
RTOs are available in many different shapes and sizes. The two main designs are the 2-tower and 3-tower RTO (may also be called a 2-can or 3-can RTO). The 2-tower design will suit most cases, while the 3-tower design will be used when the highest destruction efficiency is required (in cases of odor complaints, for example).
Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs) are used to destroy VOCs and other organic hazardous air pollutants. They are not good for treating particulates, inorganic gases, heavy metals, acids, nor other corrosive gases. If these other contaminants are present, an RTO maybe used in combination with a dust collector or wet scrubber, depending on the situation.

The Best RTO Manufacturers
Do you need multiple RTO quotes? Use our free RFQ tool.
I like using IPE Advisor to send out RFQs because all the bids come back in the same format with the same cost breakdown. I don't have to spend 5 hours trying to equate bids. It's very easy to compare apples-to-apples.
Why use our RFQ tool?
We will tell you which 3-4 RTO manufacturers are the best fit for your project based on: industry, application, size of unit, and what's most important to you, whether it's price, footprint, weight, customer service, warranty, or many other factors.
Let us help you select RTO suppliers for your RFQ.
We guarantee prompt quotes from suppliers and always the best price. At IPEA, suppliers know they have 3-4 competitors also bidding, so you'll always get the best prices.
We give you cost benchmarks for your RFQ by comparing your RFQ to similar quotes we've facilitated in the past. We will send you pricing comps as soon as you submit the RFQ.
It's completely FREE for you. We charge suppliers a small fee for using our service. This helps suppliers keep RTO prices low because they don't have to pay a huge commission on your deal.
By going through IPE Advisor and not a Sales Rep, the supplier doesn't have to pay a 5% commission which can often be more than $50,000 in savings (if the price is over $1M). Use IPE Advisor today and save everyone money.

Is it too early for firm quotes?
Use our budget calculator tool instead:
The budget calculator is really helpful to get some ballpark figures, without having to deal with any sales people. It's also helpful to know that we have an accurate budget cost, so there's no surprises later.
