Whitlingham SBT, Odour Abatement System: LavaRok® Biofilter, CuCarbs®, Fans, Ductwork & Covers
Odour abatement of H2 S and ammonia extracted from covered tanks through an OSIL LavaRok® Biofilter followed by dual CuCarb® activated carbon polishing units capable of a 99% removal of 30ppm NH3 and 100ppm H2 S from a 12,500mÑ/h air stream. Final effluent water is continually sprayed over the graded LavaRok® pebbles to provide the correct environment for the inoculum.
The porous nature of the LavaRok® provides a large surface area for the inoculum to react with the odorous air. The CuCarb® units polish any odour not removed by the Biofilter. The benefit of CuCarb® over other carbons is the ability to continue the polishing process in a damp environment.
“While OSIL presented three options to help us prevent nuisance odours being produced, together with the relative capital and running costs, their LavaRok® bio-filtration system was clearly the way forward. Bio-filtration fits with our business ethics, from the unique long life media to employing natural biological processes.”
