Baker Furnace saw another year of growth and success in 2018. Back in 2017, Baker Furnace moved to a larger location in Brea, California, which allowed them to expand their workforce, hiring a variety of positions in skilled trades and engineering. The increase in floorspace and manpower boosted Baker Furnace’s production, resulting in shipments to companies in the oil and gas, aerospace, pollution control, and waste management industries.

Baker Furnace announced the shipment of a custom waste incineration system to a pollution control company. These incinerators will be used to burn off waste after a 12-hour process. The system is designed with three gasification chambers that can burn 10 tons of waste a day per chamber. The waste incinerator is being installed in the Republic of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

With the growing size of today’s landfills, the environmental implications cannot be ignored. From atmospheric effects, to compromised water supplies, society needs to take a proactive approach in dealing with the concern’s landfills pose.
The use of recycled materials has contributed to an efficient solution, as shown with statistics from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2014. The study showed the situation improving and waste production being limited from 89 percent in the 1980s down to 53 percent as of 2014.

In part-1 of this blog series, we went over the primary types of wastewater, domestic and industrial. In part-2, we will be going over the various treatment methods for liquid waste. There are two main types of liquid waste treatment: primary and secondary.
Primary liquid waste treatment focuses on reducing solids and organic material to limit pollution. Once treated, the purified water is discharged to surface water or groundwater reserves.

Water is essential to life. Humans depend on clean, safe water for drinking, bathing, laundry, and more. Nearly every industry relies on water to manufacture, process, wash, dilute, cool, and transport their products. Many of these processes make water unfit for use and, unfortunately, there is a finite amount of clean water on earth. Without proper treatment, the inhabitants of the world would quickly run out of the water they need to survive.

The Use of Thermal Oxidizers for Air Pollution Abatement
As a continuation of our blog last month we would like to discuss the use of Thermal Oxidizers for air pollution abatement in this month’s blog. Although most people have never heard of them, thermal oxidizers help clean harmful pollutants from the air we breathe.

Take a deep breath. If you filled your lungs with clean, fresh air, you may have thermal oxidizers to thank. Thermal oxidizers help you breathe easier, reduce disease, and even live longer by cleaning pollutants from the air.
Air pollution is one of the most serious problems in the world. The air you breathe may contain dangerous particulates and biological molecules that can cause allergies, disease, and even death to humans, plants, and animals. Diseases relating to air pollution were responsible for 1 in 13 deaths – six times higher than deaths associated with malaria.
