The article provides information about the appropriate air pollution control system for a company's operation. It is stated that the factors considered in developing an optimal design for the system include the type and quantity of air pollutant as well as the volume and temperature of the air being exhausted. According to the author, the basic concept of the design for thermal and catalytic oxidizers is to obtain a chemical reaction of the air pollutant with oxygen at elevated temperatures. It also discusses the significance of a rotary concentrator system designed to effectively remove air pollutants from an air stream.
