4 Considerations for Wastewater Odor Control Technology

When odors from wastewater treatment facilities become problematic for surrounding communities, they have the potential to cause more headaches than simply an unpleasant smell. Depending on the severity of the foul air, locals may contact plant management to complain, or in more severe cases they may even reach out to local government or the media to make their complaints be known. If these odors begin to garner political or media attention it could hurt the reputation of the plant. Moreover, severe odors can impact job satisfaction and even the safety of on-site employees.

So, what can be done to control problem odors?

Why WWTP Owners Prefer PSP® Coated Metal Duct On Their Odor Control Systems

Wastewater treatment plants are sites where odorous and hazardous fumes are dealt with on a daily basis. As facilities face an ever growing list of water and air-quality issues with which to contend, advancements in vapor phase odor control technology have been sought to help mitigate many of these challenges and concerns.

This article examines some of the leading reasons why PSP® fluoropolymer coated stainless steel duct stands out as the preferred choice for wastewater odor control systems.

How Coated Metal Duct Improves Wastewater Odor Control Systems

10 Benefits of Coated Metal Duct for Wastewater Odor Control Systems

Wastewater odor control systems and vent pipe products not only need to contain foul air but also need to be highly corrosion resistant. For decades, wastewater treatment facility owners (and engineers) have faced a major pain point with plastic and FRP duct systems that degrade and need regular repair or replacement.

Compounding this pain is the fact that many plastic and FRP duct products are highly combustible. In the event of a fire, or gaseous ignition, such systems will likely be rendered useless if not completely destroyed. In short, wastewater facilities with these types of systems face the pain of higher fire insurance premiums; and those that self-insure face catastrophic losses.

Urban Growth Projections and wastewater Treatment Odor Control Implications

Over the next 6 years, the global market for wastewater treatment equipment and chemical products is expected to grow by more than 138 billion dollars (1). This enormous increase in spending will be driven by shrinking clean water supplies, increasing demand, growing population densities, and the growth of industrial applications beyond current water treatment capacities.
