Rehm are to showcase its new VOC Counter Flow Reactor at the 27th EU PVSEC Exhibition
The photovoltaic industry faces various challenges today such as fierce competition and consolidations – both are causes for some concern. But there is even more evidence of opportunity. With a broadening international market, it is being increasingly recognised that the photovoltaic industry is here to stay. The European Photovoltaic Technology Platform estimates that the PV industry has the potential to create more than 200,000 jobs in the European Union by 2020 and ten times this number worldwide.
Rehm Thermal Systems currently has over 600 curing and drying systems in production worldwide. Advancing its award-winning Thermal Oxidation System another step forward this year, Rehm Thermal Systems VOC Counter Flow Reactor (CFR) is a high efficiency exhaust after treatment system designed for processes where the exhaust gas is loaded with high solvent (VOC) concentrations. Members of the Rehm Solar Team will be on hand in hall 3.0 at booth B20 to explain the CFR principles and design during personal demonstrations.
The Rehm CFR delivers VOC destruction rates as great as 99.9 %. Exhaust gas is heated to approximately 750 °C, and at this temperature the long molecular chains of the VOC`s are broken down to mainly CO2 and water vapor. The system employs an integrated heat recovery system so that both highly efficient emission control and at the same time very low overall energy consumption can be achieved. This gives lowest cost of ownership as well as compliance with the increasingly strict emission limits in legal environmental regulations.
Low COO has been a hallmark of Rehm, whose holistic approach to energy efficiency has resulted in new benchmarks for reduced power consumption and ambient atmosphere influence.
Also on display will be Rehm’s RFS Fast Firing system which measures in at a typical 17KWh, and the RDS Drying system a meager 7KWh. In addition, external cover temperatures are maintained at <35 ° C . The RFS Fast Firing Systems is characterised by very high throughput rates, superlative profile control and leading thermal transfer efficiency.
