  • Drinking water: the problem of chlorinous odours

    Chlorinous off-flavours in drinking water are a leading cause of complaints to Australian water utilities and other utilities worldwide. The occurrence and causes of chlorinous odours in drinking water were investigated with the use of an odour panel, trained using a modified flavour profile analysis technique. A new system for classifying water types according to the causes of chlorinous odours ...

  • Comparison of different approaches for odour impact assessment: dispersion modelling (CALPUFF) vs field inspection (CEN/TC 264)

    Odour impact assessment has become an important environmental issue. Different approaches can be used in order to evaluate the odour impact on receptors, and therefore to regulate it. Among the different possible regulation approaches, the use of dispersion modelling is suggested or required by several national or regional legislations. The wide diffusion of this approach is probably due to the ...

  • Assessing Accuracy of a New Portable Olfactometer, Scentroid SM100 for Measuring Ambient Odours-A Comparative Analytical Study of SM100 and Traditional Olfactometry Techniques

    Abstract: This paper evaluates the accuracy of the newly introduced ultra-portable olfactometer, Scentroid SM100 developed by IDES Canada Inc, with two techniques traditionally used for assessing ambient odours: Nasal Ranger instrument and a lung technique with the dynamic olfactometry laboratory analysis of collected samples. A similar study was presented at the recent NOSE 2012 odour conference ...

  • Improvement of olfactometric measurement accuracy and repeatability by optimization of panel selection procedures

    The EN 13725:2003, which standardizes the determination of odour concentration by dynamic olfactometry, fixes the limits for panel selection in terms of individual threshold towards a reference gas (n-butanol in nitrogen) and of standard deviation of the responses. Nonetheless, laboratories have some degrees of freedom in developing their own procedures for panel selection and evaluation. Most ...
