Ship & Shore Two Tower RTO passes EPA tests

After optimizing the new Ship & Shore Two Tower Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer for testing (it had been achieving a Destruction Rate Efficiency around 92% when I arrived) the unit excelled in its EPA tests - achieving Destruction Rate Efficiencies between 97.9% and 98.2%.

In addition to passing the tests, plant sources were balanced. This reduced air volume by 33% - giving the unit more more capacity while reducing gas consumption by nearly 36%. The facility listened to our Scrubber recommendations and have taken steps to correct a fatal flaw that could destroy their new RTO.
