Concerned about the negative impacts of modern manufacturing on environment, the Hengli/THT team designed a ground-breaking VOC removal system for their model AST belt furnace. Connected to the furnace exhaust, the VOC removal system eliminates VOC emissions before reaching outside air. Widely used in electronics manufacturing as solvents that are dried on a belt dryer and exhausted into the air, VOCs are one of the top causes for smog. The electronics manufacturing process contributes a significant portion of VOCs to air pollution, yet THT and Hengli are the first to achieve a green solution that allows VOCs to be oxidized into CO2 before being released into the ambient air.
