The Facts About Odor Suppression Misting Systems
Odor Control can be a serious issue in some factories and facilities. Recently, misting systems have been successfully utilized to help remove and/or mask odors in large areas. By using odor suppression chemicals that are sprayed from high pressure nozzles, the misting fans can be very effective in neutralizing malodors in both large and in compact areas. These misting systems are very effective for eliminating odors that can emanate from such sites such as solid waste treatment facilities, trash transfer stations, landfill sites, waste disposal stations, sewage treatment plants, transfer stations, food processing facilities and hazardous waste sites.
Many facilities and factories face problems with malodors being released from their workplace. These odors can seep from their site into other working facilities or even residential areas. Such odors, whether real or perceived, can result in EPA issues, litigation lawsuits and possible shutdown of some of the operations of the facility. Government agencies have been known to fine and penalize the company for its facility releasing odors.
High-Pressure Odor Suppression Misting Systems can be used in low, medium and even high humidity conditions. They can be designed to assure a minimum of interference in the facility’s operations or in the jobs of its workers. These systems are comprised of certain basic components, such as 1000psi water pressure, 10-micron droplets and filtration system. However, each facility must be assessed individually and a custom system designed to solve the specific problem.
There is a large variety of different chemicals that can be delivered with a high-pressure misting system. It is best to ask your installer or manufacturer what environmentally friendly compound is most suitable for your needs.
