Control Asphalt Odors Naturally: The production of hot mix paving asphalt generates odors that can be strong, persistent, and a nuisance to employees and neighbors alike. Controlling and abating these odors can be a challenge.
A solid solution for solid waste odors. All areas of solid waste handling are, by nature, odorous affairs. Municipal sludge, municipal solid waste, landfills, composting and co-composting facilities all generate odors that can be offensive to workers and the community at large. The process is a complex one, with multiple drops, collections, transfers and sortings of recyclable and non-recyclable material. Combustible materials are then incinerated for energy production.
Pulp and paper production with none of the odor. Pulp and paper manufacturing is a notorious source of nuisance odors, often stemming from hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans and sulfur dioxide. Fortunately, Ecosorb products offer a natural and effective solution to neutralize these odors and all others associated with the paper and pulp industry. Ecosorb odor eliminators have been used repeatedly by large paper and pulp manufacturers to control odors around on-site black liquor lagoons, primary clarification ponds and...
Helping others clean up the earth by clearing up brownfield remediation odors. Helping others clean up the earth by clearing up brownfield remediation odors. Brownfield remediation consists of removing large amounts of soil that have been saturated with tar, oil or other contaminating substances. Not only dangerous to handle, the disturbed soil is often infused with very unpleasant and in some cases potentially nauseous odors.
Vaporize Odors Associated With Liquid Waste Processing: Liquid waste, such as fats, oils and grease (F.O.G.) can emit unpleasant odors, which become even more pronounced in various stages of processing. Malodorous F.O.G. from restaurants are often transported by truck to F.O.G. filtering facilities and then to plants where they are processed into useable byproducts.
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.
Use Ecosorb products to remove foundry smells naturally. Ecosorb odor control products by OMI Industries are extremely effective at breaking down and eliminating the many odorous gases produced by the metalcasting process. They chemically convert foul and potentially harmful gases into non-odorous byproducts. Within the metalcasting industry, Ecosorb products are effective on amines, sulfur dioxide, phenols, formaldehyde, ammonia, partially burnt hydrocarbons solvent odors and more.
A Single Solution To Manage Composite Odors: Many resins used in the composite industry emit styrene vapors which are considered hazardous in high concentrations and whose odor is an unpleasant nuisance. This gas is categorized as a volatile organic compound (VOC) and listed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) as a Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP). Styrene is considered highly reactive in the atmosphere and may contribute to smog formation and the production of secondary air pollutants.
When it comes to odor management, simply cleaning the tank isn’t enough to remove the odors. Prior to cleaning, storage tanks are vented to the atmosphere in order to reduce the internal gas content to a level below its lower explosion limit (LEL). This permits safe worker access. During venting, odors escape into the atmosphere creating a nuisance to nearby residents, businesses, and employees. Furthermore, storage tank cleaning results in production downtime that reduces plant profitability.
Eliminating industrial odors naturally is our civic duty. To handle the odor control needs of municipal and government agencies, OMI Industries has created MUNI odor neutralizing product. Similar in many ways to its siblings in the Ecosorb products line, Muni odor control product uses Van Der Waals forces to chemically react with malodor molecules to eliminate odors combined with a natural formulation that makes it safe to work with. What’s more, the Muni product is surprisingly economical to use. It was...
You refine the fuel, we’ll remove the odors. Oil refineries and petrochemical plants may generate large volumes of odor from the processing and refining of different fuels. Sulfides, mercaptans, and hydrocarbon compounds are all closely related to the oil industry. The odors generated from these industrial compounds are of a high nuisance value and generally create concern among local air boards and the public. Ecosorb odor removal products may be used in a variety of areas around the refinery including...
From process to product, we remove odors from rubber and plastic. Malodors, whether connected to the process or embedded within the end product, are an inherent concern associated with manufacturing polymers. Fortunately, OMI Industries has a versatile solution that’s proven to work within the plastics and rubber industries. Ecosorb odor neutralizing products feature a proprietary, natural and environmentally safe formulation that’s fast acting and effective at removing detrimental polymer odors...
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.
Watson-Marlow products are engineered to meet the process needs of industrial fluid pumping in a broad range of industries. Watson-Marlow peristaltic pumps have no valves, seals or glands, and the fluid only comes into contact with the bore of the hose or tube ensuring that safe containment and no contamination of the pump or the process fluid.
Biodegradation tests involve testing samples in response to various parameters: dilution, nutrient addition, pH, temperature, and others. The pattern of oxygen uptake in aerobic tests; nitrogen gas production in anoxic denitrification tests; methane production in methanogenic tests; hydrogen production during glycolysis; and carbon dioxide production during fermentation reactions gives a measure of the rate and extent of biodegradation of the organic constituents of the test sample.
The printing industry is under continual pressure to deliver high quality print, ever more quickly and competitively. Downtime between print runs costs money. Peristaltic hose and tube pumps from the Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group provide the performance and reliability the print industry needs.
Watson-Marlow offers a wide range of tube materials to ensure chemical compatibility with your pumped fluid. Reliability and long life will yield production benefits and reduce maintenance costs year after year.
Pulse-Flow respirometers can be used to assess biomass activity for aerobic and anaerobic reactions. In aerobic tests, cultures are combined with nutrients, trace minerals, and an organic substrate – such as acetic acid or ethanol. The maximum oxygen uptake rate reflects the amount of active biomass in the test culture.
