ODOR ABATEMENT & COLD PLASMA TECHNOLOGY: REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH SERVES PUBLIC WELL
Abstract:Palm Valley Wastewater Reclamation Facility (PVWRF) in Arizona faced odor complaints at its 4.1 million of gallons per day (mgd) facility. Proposals from engineering consultants recommended adding two more chemical scrubbers to the two already installed.
McBride Engineering Solutions (MES) recommended a new approach to odor control that eliminated odors and saved over 40% in capital costs and nearly 1,000,000 in total costs over five years.
MES recommended Aerisa products for the headworks and solids buildings (120,000 cf), leaving the installed scrubbers to clean the basins. This resulted in a reduced workload and chemical costs on the current scrubbers and an energy savings of 80% by using the Aerisa WaveFour™ Technology over chemical scrubbing solutions.
MES's focus on both process and odor abatement increased efficiencies at the plant, reduced stultifying odors up to 90% prior to installation of additional odor control and reduced capital investment for odor control equipment.
