When operating a chemical odor control treatment system it is important to make sure you have a good handle on the makeup water supply system in terms of its water quality. Having the LSI number out of balance can create havoc to the odor control treatment system in a matter of hours or over a short duration of time.
If the LSI number is too much in the positive you will create the perfect situation for scaling. The most common form of scaling in a chlorine and caustic odor control system is calcium carbonate and once fouled it can be quite difficult to reverse the process.
Once an odor control tower has fouled it normally requires a full replacement of the media packing if you can manage to get the packing media out. For more information or to learn more contact the professionals at DeLoach Industries Inc. at (941) 371-4995.
