Behind the Scenes 

Case Study & Industry Insight

17,000 SCFM RTO for EPS Facility

 Ship & Shore Environmental recently engineered, designed, and installed a cutting-edge Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) solution serving the Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) industry. With a capacity of 17,000 SCFM, the RTO was tailored to abate pentane emissions, showcasing remarkable efficiency with 98% destruction efficiency and 95% media thermal effectiveness. The unit’s advanced features include a pre-filter and hot bypass stack and damper, as well as a separate condenser system and dehumidifier, ensuring comprehensive emission control. Moreover, the RTO is designed for seamless integration and operation, featuring prewiring for minimal electrical field work and an integrated VPN for remote assessment. Ship & Shore Environmental oversaw the installation and startup process, guaranteeing a smooth transition to enhanced environmental compliance for the facility. This project underscores Ship & Shore Environmental’s commitment to delivering innovative, high-performance air pollution control solutions tailored to the specific needs of its clients in the EPS industry.

Renewing Relationships at the FTA INFOFLEX Exhibition

FTA President’s Dinner Award Ceremony

 The 2024 FTA INFOLEX Exhibition is a leading Print Industry Tradeshow event that brings printers, suppliers, and consultants together to enhance all aspects of the flexographic printing industry.

At the recent Kansas City event May 5th-8th, Ship & Shore Environmental was able get caught up with the latest technological advancements in the flexographic printing world, network with existing and potential new customers, and share our advancements within the VOC control industry.  

As always, State and Local environmental agencies are continuously tightening requirements on print industry air exhaust emissions, and overall by-products of abatement systems.  As a leading provider of Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) technology, Ship & Shore takes pride in our relationships within the industry and understanding customer needs to maintain compliance.

Keep Ship & Shore Environmental in mind as you build-out new or expand current press and laminator operations. We can assist with all aspects of an expansion project – Environmental Permitting, Abatement Equipment Selection, Collection System Engineering, Incentive / Rebate Recovery Monies, and Compliance Testing Consulting.

 This Month at Ship & Shore Environmental 

Below please find some recent updates on our work!

 Money in the Wind?

Meeting air regulatory requirements for the process industry requires a significant corporate commitment in environmental sustainability ideology and often the need for Cheque Book resources. Capital and operating costs for air pollution control equipment can be expensive. Ship & Shore Environmental’s mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineers go to great lengths to get in tune with customer processes to provide value in the design process resulting in reduced equipment sizing and operating costs.

Due to the high destruction efficiencies possible, and more importantly, very high THERMAL efficiency of Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) technology, Ship & Shore has been able to secure rebate incentives for a number of recent customers from their natural gas and electric utility providers. Just recently, we were able to confirm a $100,000 rebate for a customer in Ohio.

 Ship & Shore Environmental going the EXTRA MILE(S)

Sometimes providing customer support in a timely manner really does mean going the extra miles. An urgent customer call for Sales support triggered a 450 mile overnight drive to attend a fast track customer planning meeting. Ship & Shore Sales was able to meet with the customer team for an early morning meeting to advise on abatement equipment needs, collection system design, potential environmental permit engineering, review process layout, and explain possible incentive rebate opportunities (from natural gas and electric utility providers.) S&SE also provided support for new RTO equipment purchase and secondary heat recovery.

And to take full advantage of life on the road…the return trip to home base provided an opportunity to conduct a number of wellness visits with existing Ship & Shore customers to assure an open line of customer service support (and to enjoy the country drive not seen in the darkness).

 Remote diagnostics from Ship & Shore Environmental saves time and money!

In today’s fast paced process manufacturing environment, customers need expedited real time assessment and adjustment of factory running equipment to maintain highest product quality and efficiency. The ability to see real time operating conditions is critically important with thermal oxidizer equipment to maintain customer air emissions permit compliance.

Ship & Shore Environmental routinely offers Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) systems with Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections to securely access customer PLC controls to ensure abatement equipment is operating to specification. The encrypted connection helps ensure that sensitive data is safely transmitted. It prevents unauthorised people from eavesdropping on the traffic and allows the user to conduct work remotely.

Remote viewing of equipment operations has become an incredible tool for the Ship & Shore Service and Maintenance group. Debug oxidizer issues, make instantaneous changes to equipment operation quickly and efficiently, all from the home office. This is the next best thing to having boots on the ground without the expense. Incorporate VPN on critical operating abatement systems and spend time where it counts most, managing your process quality.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency officially designated two of the most widely used per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) — perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS), including their salts and structural isomers — as hazardous substances under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), also known as Superfund. The chemicals have been linked to cancers, impacts to the liver and heart, and immune and developmental damage to infants and children. These designations are designed to help ensure that polluters pay to clean up their contamination.
