A global innovator in industrial odor control technology has announced a new heated model in its lineup of mobile equipment engineered to manage outdoor odor vapor from landfills, waste treatment facilities and other operations that experience cold weather.
The OdorBoss 60G with Heat by Dust Control Technology combines an enclosure with insulation, heat tracing and internal heat generation to protect equipment and components during operation and storage in freezing conditions.
The unit uses a mixture of water and odor treatment agents to distribute a specially-engineered mist over great distances using a powerful fan that propels the treatment into the air where it can attach to odor vapor. The result is a dramatic reduction in both short- and long-range odor without equipment clogging or downtime from frozen lines, helping companies remain compliant with environmental regulations and maintain good neighbor relations.
The key for excellent odor control in many operations is the versatility and low maintenance that the OB-60G with Heat provides. Powered by a 480-volt power source, the special open-ended barrel design contains a powerful 25 horsepower fan that generates 30,000 cubic feet per minute of airflow on one end, which propels the fog created by the Odor X Atomizer nozzle located at the other end. The device is mounted on a towable roadworthy trailer that is also fitted with a 500-gallon water tank housed in an insulated metal enclosure. The unit can run for as long as 16 hours on a single tank filling under normal operating conditions.
During operation, a 100-watt thermostatically-controlled heater keeps the tank and equipment within the enclosure well above freezing, while the atomizing nozzle, regulator and other exterior components are warmed by separate heating elements to assure consistent operation without ice buildup. The tank is wrapped in heat tracing and skirted with a wide insulated belt around the bottom. When not in use, operators can keep the genset running or choose the more cost-effective option of switching the power source from 480 volts to 120 volts and using a grounded extension cord to power the essential freeze prevention elements.
