Odour Monitoring

Measurement of odours from pulp & paper, feedlots and natural sources is challenging and requires careful selection of instrumentation. Ecotech offers a complete monitoring solution designed for this application. Odours are one of the most common sources of air pollution complaints and may be due to a wide variety of sources from rotting vegetation, animal feedlots, pulp and paper manufacturing, sewerage treatment facilities etc. The measurement of odours is extremely difficult due to the variety of sources of odour and the often very low ppb concentrations that produce odour. However, some industries and applications have a known source of odour resulting from compounds such as mercaptans, hydrogen sulphide, ammonia, typically from industries such as pulp and paper manufacturing, fertiliser production or natural sources such as rotting vegetation. Ecotech is able to offer extremely sensitive instrumentation and systems that enables the low ppb monitoring of these species down to 1 ppb, fully integrated with our data evaluation and reporting software.
