Odor Control

Adding odor control technologies reduces unpleasant odors in the neighborhood, provides a safer workplace and extends equipment life. These odor control systems use fans to collect foul air from areas of concern such as primary clarifiers and solids facilities and route the air to odor control canisters for treatment.
