In addition to providing comprehensive interior and exterior tank cleaning services for hazardous and non-hazardous materials, the facilities are now equipped to clean and service tanks that have contained volatile organic compounds (VOCs). In an effort to control VOC emissions, the hydrocarbon based pollutants are destroyed using thermal combustion, chemically transforming emissions into carbon dioxide and water.
Hoover’s thermo oxidiser units are designed to eliminate more than 99.5 percent of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and VOCs from industrial air streams.
“Adding thermo oxidiser units to these facilities allows Hoover the opportunity to offer customers a broader range of washing and service capabilities, while helping to limit the emissions of harmful air pollutants,” said Paul Lewis, president and chief operating officer of Hoover. “Our company prides itself on providing efficient and high quality solutions that improve customer performance and reduce environmental effects when possible.”
