Wastewater Treatment Odor Control Solutions

Eliminate Nuisance Odors in Wastewater Treatment Operations

As population density envelopes the wastewater treatment plant, complaints of odor can become more common. Which leads to undesirable opinions in operational capabilities to potential litigation.

Reduced sulfur compounds including hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan, and dimethyl sulfide are often the most prevalent and can concentrate in specific stages of the treatment process.

Benzaco works with operators to selectively pair the right delivery system with a solution that will maximize site specific efficiency.

Odor-Armor®—The Non-Toxic, All-Natural Odor-Counteracting Solution

Odor-Armor® is a highly concentrated, multi-component blend featuring a combination of odor-counteracting compounds and naturally occurring microbes that work together to reduce unpleasant odors.

The specialized microbe package includes sulfate-reducing bacteria that can help break down hydrogen sulfide and other organosulfur compounds, including mercaptans and dimethyl sulfide. Unlike masking agents, which only add to the overall odor intensity, Odor-Armor® offers plant extract counteracting technology that significantly reduces odors on contact.

Treatment for Wastewater Facilities

Air Treatment

Air treatment techniques involve the introduction of odor control solutions as droplets in hydraulic misting or waterless vapor into and around the air of a particular source.

Odor treatment can be targeted to reduce a specific type and intensity. This includes the use of a mist or waterless vapor in wet wells, polishing in scrubbers or biofilters, front end works, press rooms, to installations around the perimeter of aeration basins and clarifiers.

Alternatively, these same delivery techniques can be used with automation and sensors around specific parts or the entire property.
