Food odor abatement with CLIMATIC

Traditional carbon filters replaced with CLIMATIC to remove bad odor.

A global food company, headquartered in Denmark, develops and produces a series of substances that during processing emit odors in the form of H2S along with other sulfides and compounds. The production includes cultures, enzymes and colors for a variety of foods, such as:

  • Confectionery
  • Beverages
  • Dietary supplements
  • Animal feed and
  • Plant protection.

The company’s factory is located in an urban area with a supermarket just a stone’s throw away from the production tanks. According to Danish law, the odor threshold in residential area is 5-10 odor units/m. As the smell of fermentation has been a nuisance for the neighbors, the company received a direction to minimize the smell.

For many years, the company has applied traditional carbon filters to manage their smell issues. Carbon is a well-known solution for such application, it is cheap to acquire and easy to comprehend. Three important requirements for many industrial companies that need a quick solution for a complicated matter. Unfortunately, many professionals also share the expensive learning that carbon is quite heavy on maintenance, as the filters need frequent replacement. This consequently also means unexpectedly high running costs as to time, handling and money.

Our customer has now replaced their carbon filters with INFUSER’s CLIMATIC technology to efficiently remove their smell issues in an all-round beneficial way. Valuable upgrades to benefit from are now:

  1. Low operation costs
  2. Infrequent maintenance and
  3. Simple handling.

In 2017, our customer completed a smell test to measure CLIMATIC’s performance, which gave a clear and positive result.
