Effective Odor and Dust Control Systems

High pressure misting systems, sometimes referred to as fog systems, have quietly become one of the most effective and economically viable means of dust and odor control.

Although the concept is still unknown to many in the dust control industry, misting systems have proven themselves to be an effective means of dust suppression, dust abatement, and open air filtration. A properly designed and installed misting system can suppress and remove breathable fugitive dust particles as small as 1 micron in diameter and easily exceeds the EPA PM 10 standards for dust suppression.

This approach has been widely accepted in solid waste treatment facilities as the best alternative to remove and suppress airborne dust. It is not unusual for architects to include the installation of a dust control misting system in the original specifications for a newly commissioned facility. In addition, many existing plants are retrofitting their building with these efficient means of dust control.

In the same way, an effective dust control system can also be and effective odor control system. The only difference is the inclusion of an injection system that will introduce a variety of chemicals into the environment that are used to efficiently cover or even digest the very cause of the odor. This would include odor control problems such as microbial decomposition (commonly found in solid waste treatment facilities), animal waste (as found in poultry, hog, and cattle producing facilities) and other noxious volatile compounds (including restaurant grease traps).

A high pressure misting system can be an efficient and economical delivery system for both dust and odor removal requirements and are less expensive and require less maintenance than other more traditional means including air injection. In addition, by incorporating different components for system control, the entire process can be automated.

Facilities that can benefit from the effective and efficient means of dust and odor control include solid waste transfer stations, construction sites, landfills, composting facilities, poultry and livestock facilities, and food processing plants.

As recap, a properly designed and installed high pressure misting system can be the most effective means of odor and dust control; it is generally less expensive to operate and maintain than other methods; it can eliminate hazardous working conditions while improving the overall environment for people and animals; and it can remove breathable fugitive dust particles down to 10 microns or below.
