The challenge is not whether Ecosorb will neutralize the odor but in getting Ecosorb to the odor site in a form that allows it to be effective. This is often determined by how Ecosorb is atomized into the atmosphere via a delivery system. An appropriate delivery system will be chosen based on the type of odor to be controlled, the source of odor emission, the size of the area, the existing odor control hardware, and the flexibility of engineering facilities. However, whether the requirement is for dripping, fogging, dosing, injecting, or scrubbing, easy to use application equipment is available and can be provided by your Ecosorb distributor.
The types of delivery apparatus vary from a simple portable-fogging machine to complex metering, injection, and recovery systems found in multi-million dollar air scrubbing/filtration units. Because of Ecosorb’s infinite flexibility, existing odor control hardware can usually be adapted easily. This further reduces capital costs by keeping equipment from becoming redundant. Ecosorb can often replace air scrubbers and other elaborate odor control equipment used to deodorize stack emissions. Where scrubbers are installed, Ecosorb can be used as a safe, effective odor control substitute for potentially hazardous chemicals or as a secondary polishing agent. Little alteration to existing equipment is necessary to quickly install an Ecosorb system in almost any plant.
Hydraulic High Pressure Systems (top)
All high-pressure hydraulic odor control systems designed and built by ECSP are completely custom made to suit the many different needs and objectives of our clients. ECSP hydraulic odor control systems can be installed with manual controls or they can be assembled completely automated to be activated by time schedules. Process controllers, wind and or weather activation controls or specific gas counts
The high-pressure hydraulic odor control systems are infinitely flexible in design and construction The atomization line can be supplied in either high-pressure flexible tubing or utilizing stainless steel pipe and fittings. Standard in-line water filtration with our hydraulic systems cleanses down to 5 micron ensuring minimal downtime or nozzle clogging due to calcification or other solids in the water supply. Water softening units may also be included if required.
The pump and motor is supplied fully enclosed on a very sturdy aluminium frame, with a painted aluminium cover for extended corrosion resistance and durability The pumping unit is supplied TEFC and mechanically cooled. An extensive combination of pumps and motors can be utilized to suit on-site needs and the various international power requirements.
The high-pressure hydraulic atomization nozzles used can be supplied in a variety of orifice sizes to suit each particular application. The orifice size determines the water droplet size and flow rate into the atmosphere. The standard hydraulic nozzles are brass with a stainless steel insert orifice although ECSP can supply full stainless nozzles for highly corrosive atmospheres.
Nozzle lines can be supplied with any combination of nozzle spacings and manifold line. Several nozzle lines can be run from a single pump unit utilizing a unique combination of specially made manifolds and control valves.
ECSP's high-pressure hydraulic odor control system can be supplied with basic controls fixed to the pump module or in a control panel, which can located in a more convenient or accessible area. The control panel can be assembled to activate manually or be automated by means of activation by a time sequence, process controllers, weather activation or specified gas counts. The control panel can also provide maintenance prompters for the filtration systems, the pump and motor to ensure long term operation and reliability.
Injection of ECSP's odor control chemicals can be adjusted using other proportional hydraulic injection systems or electronic metering devices depending on the site requirements. These proportional injectors may be adjusted during operation if necessary to compensate for additional or abnormal odor levels-Standard electrical units, explosion proof units, electric or diesel powered mobile units, whatever special requirements you may have ECSP can design and build the odor control system that will meet your special needs and your expectations.
Designed, built and supplied by our engineering department ECSP will ensure that you get the right system for your needs. If required, ECSP can also provide an ongoing regular maintenance service to ensure peak performance of your odor control system at all times.
Pneumatic Atomization Nozzle Systems (top)
Compressed air atomization nozzle systems provide an excellent method to deliver atomized Ecosorb to an application. The systems are simple in design and easily installed. The largest single advantage of air atomization nozzle systems is the ability for control – the higher the air pressure (the smaller and faster the droplet size and the higher the liquid pressure). The further the volume of the product that can be disbursed offering a system suitable for duel operation. As an added benefit, these systems can be and often are designed to operate without electrical power, making them ideal for potentially explosive environments. The system requires facility compressed air.
The Pneumatic atomization systems utilize “air atomizing” nozzles that are manufactured by companies such as Spraying systems, Delavan, Delta, and Bete and are available through MechPro.
Compressed air is mixed with thru Ecosorb liquid stream within the nozzle, producing a completely atomized spray. System design is typically a pneumatic design where one must deal with pressure regulation, flow control, compressed air quality and pneumatic plumbing.
Hollow Bladed Fans (top)
The hollow bladed fan is an innovative, simple, and effective solution for the delivery of Ecosorb in relatively still air applications. Usually used indoors, the fan is excellent for applications where localized delivery is deficient.
The hollow bladed fan is an electrically driven four bladed fan with an orifice passage located in the longitudinal axis of each blade. Ecosorb is delivered into the fan hub from where it is transmitted into the blades and exits the blade tips where it is well atomized.
The dispersion distance for Ecosorb is from 30 to 60 feet (10 to 20 meters) depending on the model selected. Attaching the fan to a 360° oscillator, one can realize over 2,800 square feet (240 square meters) of coverage with one fan. The oscillating unit can be adjusted to cover from 3.75° to a full 360° of sweep range. For larger areas, one can specify multiple fans.
Installation of these fans is simple. A wheeled floor stand is available for mobile applications or low-level installations. Usually, the fans are installed in elevated wall or ceiling locations above the odor source. Two U-bolts suspend the fan assembly from a horizontal steel pipe. Purpose made wall, ceiling and floor mount kits are also available.
The fan is only a delivery apparatus and requires a metering pump to move and dilute working solution from the Ecosorb container. The fan comes complete with a flow meter for monitoring purposes.
Vapor Phase Systems (top)
Vapour systems convert Ecosorb into vapor phase and distribute the vapors into malodorous areas where a reaction can occur. Inlet air is drawn into the chamber intake opening under a vacuum produced by the blower. As the product is vaporized, the chemical holding tank replenishes it. The vapors travel through the vapor chamber and transfer tube to the vapor outlet tube and then are dispersed to the target area whether that is 50 or 500 feet away. The primary air supply is drawn into the stream through the blower silencer with only enough air pulled through the vapor chamber to carry the resulting product vapors. System pressure is typically between 20 to psi, with higher pressures used when higher product consumption is desired.
