What is an Odour control system?
Odour control technologies use physical, chemical, or biological methods to eliminate unwanted odours from treatment plants. Wherever, Wastewater treatment plants produce sulphur compounds, ammonia, and volatile organic compounds, odour control may be required. Odour control is one of the stabilising systems that must be installed in any treatment plant or industrial unit, as it promotes good relations with the public and local authorities.
Different types of Odour Control Technology
1. Adsorption system with activated carbon
2. Scrubbing system using chemicals
3. System of biological oxidation
How to choose the best odour control system for your STP?
The majority of process engineers in the wastewater treatment and environmental industries are extremely knowledgeable about wastewater treatment and optimization, but for those with a lack of understanding, any action could be worthless. Clarity is a beneficial business key when adopting an odour control system at a plant.
Here are some of the most often asked questions while looking for smell control system vendors around the world:
What are the odour-removal processes generally considered?
The inlet works, which include but are not limited to wastewater receiving channel, pumping station, screening & grit removal channel, etc., and the sludge treatment facility, which includes but is not limited to sludge holding tank, sludge treatment room, etc., are potential odour generating areas in wastewater treatment plants.
As a process engineer, you must ensure that these factors are taken into account when determining the capacity of an odour control system.
What are the air exchange elements taken into account?
The size and efficiency of the wastewater smell control and removal system are directly impacted by air exchange parameters while constructing the odour control system capacity. The majority of regional municipalities have issued explicit instructions on the air exchange parameters to be considered when calculating the capacity of smell control systems.
Air exchange coefficients for inlet works are typically in the range of 12-15 of the volume of the air. It will be 6-12 times the volume of air in the sludge treatment plant, depending on the ventilated room, aerated tanks, and other factors.
What is the efficacy of odour elimination?
The odour elimination efficiency must meet regional municipality requirements, which have been pre-determined to define odour limitations in wastewater treatment facilities. Although some towns have requested higher removal efficiency of Hydrogen sulphide as less than 0.1ppm at the Odour control system output, some municipalities have kept a discharge restriction of less than 1ppm Hydrogen sulphide for Odour control systems. Any smell control system should have a minimum elimination efficiency of 99 percent from the start.
How much does it cost to run a business and how much does it cost to buy supplies?
Many clients only consider the initial cost of a system when purchasing it; they are unconcerned with the system's operational costs.
Ideally, capital and operating costs should be estimated while comparing the costs of various smell control systems; this pricing method will ultimately assist clients in deciding which technology to select and install.
