Odour Control & Wastewater Treatment
Chlorine Dioxide is effective across a broad pH range, and unlike chlorine will oxidise a number of odour causing compounds without forming toxic chlorinated by-products
Corrosion due to sustained, uncontrolled release of Hydrogen Sulphide caused the shutdown of a $6M wastewater treatment facility after 2 years
Effectively controlling industrial odour emissions requires a deep understanding of the upstream process, and any variability that might occur. Often, a combination of alkaline and basic scrubbing systems, and/or barrier misting systems are required to achieve complete control.
Chlorine Dioxide can form an important part of this control system. Scotmas work with leading manufacturers of scrubber and barrier mists systems to integrate effective chlorine dioxide treatments into the treatment chain.
Chlorine Dioxide is particularly effective against sulphides, mercaptans, secondary and tertiary amines where is powerful, non-chlorinating oxidative action oxidises the compound to non-odour producing components, without producing chlorinated organic compounds that are so hazardous in wastewater discharges.
Chlorine Dioxide can be added to once through and recirculating scrubber systems easily and cheaply using our Alpha dosing systems, or even directly without a generation system to recirculating acidic systems.
In temporary barrier misting systems, Chlorine Dioxide can again be applied as a simple tablet to the feed bowser, or via a simple continuous dosing system. Scotmas provide a number of simple colour change dip test kits to help you ensure that Chlorine Dioxide is being deliver efficiently and safely to your system.
