OSIL rapid response service team complete critical carbon change

OSIL were awarded the emergency changing of carbon media inside two carbon filters that serve the Thermal Hydrolysis Plant at a Thames Water site.

The existing media installed on site was under performing to significantly reduce the sulphur compounds that are treated by the odour control plant. After undertaking a system survey OSIL recommended the use of our CuCarb® media which is more suitable to the sulphur compounds produced by the Thermal Hydrolysis Plant.

Despite another significantly large carbon media change being undertaken during last week, OSIL were able to complete the works ahead of schedule and program the changing on the filters last Friday (23rd) much to the satisfaction of our customer.

Now the new CuCarb® media is installed the odour control system carbon filters are fit for continued service, OSIL will record a routine sulphur compound emission test within the next 2 to 4 weeks so that the future serviceability of the installed media can be assessed.
