Natural odor control for wastewater treatment processes. Industrial and municipal wastewater treatment generates odors that can be strong, persistent, and a nuisance to employees, residents, businesses, and industries located near the wastewater treatment plant.
Automation can save money, optimise a process and give warning of potential breeches of discharge consent. However, instrument selection is fundamentally important if a control system is to function efficiently. The measurement device must accurately and quickly respond to process variations and it must be reliable in operation if the control system is to function as intended. Designed properly, energy and chemical use can be significantly reduced, saving money and ultimately improving effluent quality.
One of the biggest costs for water-water treatment is energy consumption; the cost of which is likely to escalate with increased demand. Ineffective process control may not only be costly but environmentally impacts though the inefficient use of an un-renewable resource. Furthermore, poor process control in one area may also impinge on neighbouring processes ultimately affecting effluent water quality.
Odor from industries is a growing problem as cities are expanding closer to industrial areas. The production at food processing industries, fish factories, biodiesel plants and the like can create odors that might be a nuisance to the surrounding area. Odor control systems has thus become important to industries located closed to urban areas.
This section contains applications relevant for compliance, water treatment, drinking water and natural sources.
Collecting, treating and distributing water to consumers and industry, in compliance with quality standards, means a challenging task to water companies. Both private as public water treatment entities have to manage carefully and sustainably their sources, processes and even distribution networks. AppliTek supports them not only with an extended portfolio of analyzers but also with its experience in...
Control of wastewater is increasingly becoming important to avoid potential environmental and increasing legal consequences. Accurate pH, O2, conductivity and turbidity measurements are critical in modern wastewater treatment. METTLER TOLEDO offers reliable, cost-effective solutions to control industrial effluents.
Safely Eliminate Odors Created By Food Processing: Malodors generated by the food processing industry vary enormously since they can be generated in the production, processing, and wastewater treatment areas of the plant. Regardless of the source, all of these odors may be offensive to the public.
Custom water and wastewater engineering, consulting and process design services to prevent air, land, water and environmental pollution. We rework systems as processes change and troubleshoot where necessary to bring systems into compliance.

KIRK Eagle Series valve interlock systems can be implemented within many industries in which managing the flow of materials and products is critical. Valve interlocks can aid in minimizing loss of product, preventing materials from mixing that may cause hazardous results, and promoting flow control process safety that protects your personnel and equipment. The specific flow control applications below can be designed to meet the unique needs of every customer and can be added to an existing KIRK trapped key...
Demineralization is the process of removing mineral salts as well as organic impurities from water by means of ion-exchange and can be found in various industries such as the chemical, food & beverage, irrigation and filtration industries. The consuming side of the industry relies on ever increasing quality and availability of demi-water while the manufacturers have to balance cost/output. AppliTek provides high quality analytical tools to increase process efficiency and quality control. Continuous measurements...
The EPR regulations have replaced the IPPC regulations and are effective from May 2009 for qualifying companies within the industrial sector and October 2009 within the water sector. They will progressively require industry to minimise waste, reduce product loss and implement improved process control. The legislation will require the operator to self monitor processes and discharges, to demonstrate effective control with particular emphasis on EPR compliance and prevention. The regulating Agency will operate a...
In 2004-2005 LIFETECH`s laboratory worked out an advanced oxidation process (AOP) for removal of dioxins and furans (PCDD/F), chlorophenols and other contaminants from the BCD process wastewater. Consequently, our technology was installed and from April 2006 successfully used in the `Spolana-Dioxins` Project at SPOLANA a.s. in Neratovice, Czech Republic, as a part of Special Wastewater Treatment Plant. Our supply consisted of an ozone generator with the output of 5 kg O3/h at 10% w/w ozone concentration, two...
Biological fouling of reverse osmosis is a common problem leading to reduced efficiency and reduced membrane life. CleanOxide Liquid 75 is pure Chlorine dioxide which is a highly effective biocide ideal for use in reverse osmosis systems. CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide has all the important regulatory approvals in Australia and overseas to be used in water treatment and food processing. Many strategies have been developed in an effort to control biofouling of Reverse Osmosis membranes including the use of sodium...
The pharmaceutical market is at the center of personal care, serving to protect public health and improve the quality and span of life. This global market requires treatment technologies to disinfect, measure, control and filter process water and wastewater generated from production.
Chemical plants that produce high quantities of phenols (plastics, pesticides and pharmaceutical industries) and other aromatic organic compounds are excellent candidates for wastewater characterization via spectral analysis. Chemicals that contain conjugated double bonds absorb UV radiation remarkably well. The benefits include higher precision in process control as well as optimization of wastewater treatment.
In a cutting-edge sector, such as Pharma & Cosmetics production, the needs related to wastewater can be summarized as optimization of the whole water cycle management, controlling the costs and respecting the environment. Within the Health Care industry, water is commonly used in liquid, either as an ingredient in many formulations and also as a cleaning agent. The wastewater coming from these processes can offer opportunities for matter recovery and water reuse.
Sulfide Odor Control
Sulfide is found throughout the environment as a result of both natural and industrial processes. Most sulfide found in nature was produced biologically (under anaerobic conditions) and occurs as free hydrogen sulfide (H2S) - characterized by its rotten egg odor. We are most likely to encounter biogenic H2S in sour groundwaters, swamps and marshes, natural gas deposits, and sewage collection/treatment systems. Manmade sources of H2S typically occur as a result of natural materials containing...
