Installing a new RTO at Subaru Indiana
Over summer shutdown this year, TKS will extend the paint finish oven at Subaru Manufacturing in Lafayette, Indiana. As part of that project, TKS will install a brand new Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) to control air pollution from the oven exhaust. In the past, Subaru of Indiana (SIA) has has issues with restricted airflow through their old RTO due to clogging on the ceramic media beds. The new RTO features a new type of ceramic media that is designed to reduce clogging and blocking of the media. Subaru's RTO will have its start of production in July 2018. Subaru makes the Legacy, Outback, and Impreza at SIA. Starting this summer, it will begin manufacturing the Subaru Ascent.
