Energy Recovery on Styrene Control System


World Leaders in Polymer Surface Water Treatment Systems

MECHON were commissioned to resolve the clients
ongoing issues relating to overexposure of employees to the harmful effects of styrene vapours and compliance with the PPC Regulations 2000.

A combination of local exhaust hoods and downward air draft air systems was employed to overcome all airborne exposure control issues. 

Large amounts of waste heat would have been lost to atmosphere through the LEV systems. MECHON were able to recover this energy using thermal wheel technology, transferring the captured energy to the supply air system. Using this method of air-air heat recovery, MECHON were able to recovery warm air at an efficiency of 72%, equating to 440kW of heating.

A combination of oil-fired heaters and evaporative cooling technology was utilised to provide additional temperature control on the supply air systems.
