OdoWatch® provides continuous monitoring of odor sources to help operators prevent odor complaints
OdoWatch® system's electronic nose is calibrated to "smell" odors and quantify them in odor units. The system monitors odor sources and displays the odor intensity as a color-coded plume overlaid on a site map. Operators are alerted that actions need to be taken before the odor intensity reaches a point that can be detected by the human nose.
How OdoWatch® Works
- OdoWatch® technology positions e-noses near the site's odor sources. The e-noses are calibrated to recognize and quantify your site's odors in odor units. This data is sent to a central control unit (CCU) at your site.
- A weather tower collects data at your site and transmits the information to the same central control unit.
- The CCU combines the weather data and uses proprietary software to display the intensity of the odor as a color coded plume overlaid on a site map.
Operators are warned when a situation could result in odor compliants. This early warning enables process adjustments or proactive steps to be taken to prevent nuisance odors.
Quantification of odors enables right-size odor control measures and prevents overdosing of treatment chemicals for odor control, thus saving costs.
- Improve community relationships
- Eliminate costly on-site sampling
- Right-size your odor control
- Provide scientific defendable data
- Reduce chemical overdosing
OdoScan™ can be an affordable alternative to OdoWatch®.
With OdoScan™, the odor concentration is measured manually at the sources of the site. That measured value is then used as a fixed input to the OdoScan™ software, which uses the real-time weather data from the met tower to model the atmospheric dispersion and display the site's odor plume.
OdoScan™ tracks the direction of the emitted odor based on fixed source concentration data (in odor units per cubic metre) but real-time weather.
1. Centralizes and automates odor monitoring
2. Models atmospheric dispersion of odor and archives the weather data
3. Displays an odor plume based on real-time weather, displays meteorological data, and odor concentration at the receptors
4. Alerts when preset odor values are exceeded at those receptors
