HOW IT WORKS
The primary pyrolitic chamber is the first unit operation which converts solid and liquid wastes into a gaseous smoke. The smoke is comprised of a stream of VOC’s, CO, CO2, carbon based particulates, droplets of oil, water vapour, and related materials.
The secondary plasma chamber receives the smoke generated in the pyrolytic chamber via a circulation fan. The smoke is treated with temperature and a plasma generated ion beam which accelerates the free radical oxidation process.
The free radicals generated from the plasma system provide the activation energy to drive the molecules into their highest oxidation state. They effectively destroy hydrocarbon molecules, convert CO to CO2 and oxidize any carbon particles to carbon dioxide.
The last unit operation in the CoronaLuxTM process is the vent. The vent provides increased residence time to allow the free radicals generated in the plasma chamber additional time to react. The exhaust gases from the vent are then exhausted through the chimney.
