Highly Innovative Non-Thermal Plasma (NTP)
Plasmas operating at hundreds or thousands of degrees above ambient temperature. Non-Thermal Plasma (NTP) on the other hand, also known as cold plasma or corona, operates under low temperatures. Aerox developed plasma modules which can generate a plasma using a high voltage. Within the plasma, oxygen and water vapour molecules are converted into oxygen and hydroxyl radicals, often referred as active oxygen. This highly reactive mixture requires virtually no contact time and will cause a high-speed (partial) oxidation of odour molecules.
When clean, ambient air is drawn into the Aerox-Cabinet, it passes through a series of Non-Thermal Plasma modules. Inside these modules oxygen and water vapour molecules present are converted into 'active oxygen'.
This highly reactive mixture is then injected at high speed into the process air exhaust duct through our specially designed Aerox-Adapter.
The 'active oxygen' present in the injection air executes a high-speed oxidation reaction with the offensive odour molecules inside the process air. This makes them inoffensive and undetectable by human nose.
The Aerox-Injector is placed outside the process duct. By using clean ambient air we assure that the unit stays clean and there is no possible contamination of the NTP modules. This also makes it possible to treat even 'Wet' or saturated air flows without negatively effecting the odour reduction or the Aerox-Injector.
This ultimately results in:
- High reliability
- Low operational costs
- Easy maintenance
- No process downtime during maintenance
A Dedicated Environmental Focus
The environment is at the tip of tongues political and as a consequence, it is high on the list of priorities within companies across all sectors. In themselves, industrial odours have no impact on the environment - they are 'merely' a nuisance to people populating the vicinity of production plants. Yet as corporate image is pivotal to the overall status and success of companies today, decision makers are keen to invest in technology to combat such nuisances.
Environmental headache or company image improvement?
The removal of odours from process air, however, in order to please neighbours and meet increasing calls from politicians and pressure groups to do something about stench, can cause an environmental headache. Not so with the Aerox-Injector. It was designed specifically with the environment in mind. The Injector requires no water, chemicals or fuel to operate. Due to its unique agitated oxygen technology, which works on the principle of passing air between specially prepared cathodes and diodes, all it needs is a relatively small amount of electricity. And it produces no waste whatsoever.
From electricity to fresh air:
- Low energy consumption
- No fuelno water
- No chemicals
- No waste
