Choosing the right type of odor control scrubber can save you money!
We have discussed the importance of understanding the source and concentration of an odor issue before selecting the type of treatment or the type of odor control system. In addition to these key items is the consideration of operating cost.
There are many types of odor control systems that work and remove odors, but selecting and designing a system that works efficiently and effectively without breaking the bank can be challenging.
For a design professional and for the supplier of the system, it is important to consider what an owner, and/or their operators, will be faced with to maintain the odor control system.
As an example, carbon absorption has been around for many years and is a very effective method to remove noxious odors from an air stream. However, the use of carbon in municipal operations is seldom seen these days, due to the extreme cost of disposal or on site regeneration of the carbon once is has been spent. The same can be said about other types of odor control processes that utilize chemicals, such as potassium permanganate.
If odor concentrations are high enough, an operator or owner could experience weekly or monthly change out of media or a high consumption of chemicals. This is a good razor blade business for suppliers, but does not tend to make customers happy who are paying the bills.
The operating costs and the additional downtime that can be associated with an odor control system should always be taken into consideration when selecting the type of odor control system. Other considerations we will discuss later are the location that the odor control system will be placed into operation.
