Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer Installations

Find out where TKS have installed Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers in North America.

Honda Marysville Paint Shop

Honda Engineers selected a regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) abatement system to destroy the hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from their paint cure ovens. Honda-MAP's new paint facility features multiple RTO systems to abate exhaust air from the E-coat oven, Sealer oven, and Topcoat Ovens. Honda selected the RTOs for their high thermal efficiency and low natural gas usage per CFM.

Subaru Indiana Paint

Lafayette, Indiana

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer
To Be Installed July 2018
10,000 cfm

Honda Body Paint

Marysville, Ohio

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer
Installed 2017
30,000 cfm
Honda's new Marysville paint line features a new Babcock & Wilcox Megtec RTO. The RTO abates exhaust air from the paint cure ovens. The RTO is now running full production, reducing emissions from producing 250,000 vehicles per year by 99%.

Using a Maxon burner and gas train, shown above in orange, the RTO burner produces low NOX.

Nissan Body Paint

Smyrna, TN

Installed 2012
Two (2) 30,000 cfm RTOs

Nissan's new Smyrna paint line features two new CLEANSWITCH Megtec RTOs (now Babcock & Wilcox). The RTOs collectively abate the HAPs from the paint cure ovens and the VOCs from the clear coat painting booths. Nissan prides itself on choosing the best air pollution control equipment and technologies available.

Kia Body Paint

West Point, GA

Installed 2010
50,000 cfm

Kia's new West Point (KMMG) paint line features a large RTO to abate the HAPs from the paint cure ovens and the VOCs from the clear coat painting booths. Kia elected to combine all paint shop emissions into a single air pollution control system. This combined design causes some issues with oven tar condensation in the cool paint booth air, prior to reaching the RTO's combustion chamber.

Nissan Car, Truck, and Van Lines

Canton, MS

Installed 2001, 2005, and 2009
25,000 cfm

Nissan's new Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) paint line in Canton, Mississippi features a very large RTO to abate the HAPs from multiple paint cure ovens and the VOCs from the clear coat painting booth. Nissan elected to combine all paint shop emissions from their existing C1 Truck paint line (Nissan Titan) into a single air pollution control system.
