Operating principle Oxi.X RL
The Oxi.X RL has twelve separate ceramic heat exchanger beds that are arranged radially over a proprietary distributor valve. Incoming contaminated air enters the media beds through the base of the Oxi.X RL and is drawn upwards through five of the beds which have been pre-heated.
The air is heated as it rises and enters a combustion chamber at the top of the system where a burner provides any additional energy needed to complete the oxidation process. The pollutants are oxidized at high temperatures and converted into CO2 and H2O. Hot, clean exhaust gas is then drawn downwards through the five adjacent ceramic beds where the thermal energy is transferred to the blocks before the clean air is released into the atmosphere.
The two “spare” beds help to prevent cross contamination between the inlet and outlet sections and ensure that the Oxi.X RL unit is highly efficient. Up to 95% of the thermal energy required for the oxidation process is recovered internally which keeps the consumption of fuel by the burner to a minimum.
