Pay To Process Hot Air
RSI's Equipment Pay You with Process Savings, Energy
Cogeneration, and More!
it has been the practice in the soil and groundwater
remediation industry to specify oxidation equipment
based upon maximized process flow rates and applied
vacuum-but what are you really paying for?
Flow Rates vs. Mass Removal Rates
Most oxidation processes require influent dilution
air to meet acceptable LEL process safety limits
- sometimes reducing influent concentration down
to 20% of LEL values. High process flow rates, therefore,
do not necessarily equate to high mass removal rates,
especially when VOC abatement is required.
Stop paying for processing ambient air! RSI's Internal
Combustion Engine (ICE) technology utilizes dilution
air only as necessary to maintain stoichiometric
combustion. Further, RSI's ICE systems can operate
with VOC influent concentrations at or above LEL
with minimal to no supplemental fuel usage.
the final analysis, when you compare the capital,
installation, utility and O&M costs of thermal
and catalytic oxidizers to ICE systems on a "cost
per pound destroyed" basis, ICE technology
is usually the clear, cost-effective choice.
In fact, according to a study conducted by the United
States Air Force (AFCEE):
upon the cost estimate provided in Section 3.4,
ICE technology is similar to that of thermal and
catalytic oxidation when influent concentrations
range between 3,000 to 5,000 ppmv TVH. Above these
concentrations, ICE technology becomes more cost-effective."*

should you settle for equipment that doesn't
pay for itself? Not only does RSI's equipment
operate without requiring an external source
of electricity, now our equipment can produce
electricity for other uses.
RSI now offers generator modules that interface
with our internal combustion engines. Our
systems provide up to 80kW of electrical power,
and produce this electricity by using extracted
contaminants as fuel while remaining completely
under computerized emissions control.
The RSI Phoenix S.A.V.E. controller monitors
and adjusts process parameters to maintain
stoichiometric combustion even while the generator
module is producing electricity. The end user
is assured of safe, clean and continuous electrical
power without impacting the integrity of the

Properly equipped, RSI remediation equipment
can turn unused energy in the form of hydrocarbon
contaminants in the soil or groundwater into
dollars in your pocket. Let RSI help you to
realize a return on your investment while still
remediating your property. Our gen-set module
will produce electricity that can be sold back
to the local utility company, and, in some instances,
reduce actual operating costs. The energy that
is produced can be sold back to your local electrical
utility company. RSI can assist you in the selection
of switching equipment that will ensure effective
Advances in our control technology and increases
