Catalyst Substrate Honeycomb Ceramic Heat Storage Media for RTO
Ceramic honeycombs are applied as heat storage media in regenerative thermal processes to recover thermal energy. Typical
application examples are thermal air pollution abatement systems based on regenerative thermal oxidiation (RTO), thermal
regenerators for process gases, heat storage media for decentralised Regenerative Housing Ventilation systems (RHV) or heat
storage applications in renewable energy generation.
Still the main area of application for ceramic honeycombs are Regenerative Thermal Oxidation units (RTOs) for destruction of
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
Typical industries that use such RTO systems include the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, paint and paper manufacturers,
wood processing companies, and the electronics and semiconductor industries amongst others.
