CIRRUS® VEC System 

system for Cryogenic condensation and recovery of volatile compounds

Minimizing the release of VOCs and increasing the recovery of solvents

The chemical and specialty chemical industry uses solvents to manufacture, distribute, and store products.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a health and environmental hazard regulated by law, therefore, manufacturers must work to limit the amount of VOCs that are inadvertently released into the atmosphere. Linde's CIRRUS system uses cryogenic cooling with liquid nitrogen for VOC emission control. The systems are available in three models to meet your process requirements. These models include the CIRRUS VEC System M50, M150, and M500.
Important benefits include:

  • Minimizing the release of VOCs into the atmosphere

  • Recovering valuable solvents to save costs

  • Efficient use of nitrogen, as both liquid and gas:
    - Cryogenic cooling with liquid nitrogen for VOC emission control
    - Inerting with the gaseous nitrogen that exits the cryogenic cooling process

The vapor emission control system is easy to start up and shut down. It is operated by a programmable logic controller (PLC) that keeps the selected emission level constant, regardless of variation in gas flow, pressure, temperature, or level of solvents in the process gas.
