The article focuses on the inspection of a catalytic oxidizer by NESTEC Inc. which will be used for pharmaceutical production. It says that both the shell and tube heat exchanger have been inspected and a damage was determined that affect the catalytic oxidizer's flow and performance. The result of the inspection reveals that catalyst's temperature differential (Δ-T) cannot accurately indicate the performance of catalytic oxidizer.
