Odor Control for The Wastewater Treatment Plants

Traditional odor control methods used in WWTP are chemical based wet scrubbers or carbon adsorption systems are both capital and maintenance intensive. The Sterionizer approach provides unique technology for odor control with much lower total cost of ownership.

Example of assembly within AHU. Usually placed after initial filters to keep all components clean and provide ions to the duct system.

Odor Removal from WWTP – Removes odors with ionization technology that requires no storage tanks and incorporates optional heating systems.

Decay Control – By counteracting other corrosive gases inside the application area, the corrosion of metal components is significantly reduced or eliminated.

Reduced Maintenance – With no moving parts Sterionizer requires minimal maintenance, costing typically 70-75% less than traditional pollution control/exhaust systems. No periodic filter or other parts replacement.

Energy Savings – Sterionizer D6 unit effectively treats 500 to 1600 CFM, but only requires low watts of power. Since ionization systems utilize the facility volume as a reaction chamber instead of using a tank as with exhaust-only scrubbers, pressure drop is low, hence fan power requirement is 75-80% less than traditional solutions.

No harsh Chemicals Required – EB Air supplied Sterionizer generates positive and negative ions with highly oxidative capacity that break down a wide variety of wastewater-related, odorous compounds without the use of costly and hazardous chemicals. Minimum Ozone is produced below the accepted threshold.
