DESIGNING FOR ODOUR CONTROL
The system creates an engineered fog comprised of millions of tiny chemically-enhanced droplets as small as 15 microns in diameter (approximately twice the size of a human red blood cell), which is required to effectively distribute the chemical into the air. Delivered by a special open-ended barrel design containing a powerful fan on one end and the Odor X Atomizer nozzle on the other, the device is mounted on a towable roadworthy trailer that is also fitted with a 500-gallon (1,893- litre) water tank.
Designed to be moved and adjusted with changing conditions by a standard pickup truck or small skid steer, the low- maintenance unit runs for 16 hours on a single tank under normal operating conditions.
The fine fog produced by the atomizing nozzle is propelled by a 25 horsepower fan generating 30,000ft3 per minute (152.4m3/sec) of air flow. Using the
standard 359° built-in electric oscillator delivers extremely wide dispersal. Also featuring a vertical adjustment between 0–50o for expanded reach and precision aiming, the entire unit is controlled by a touch screen panel housed in a protective NEMA 3R cabinet.
When using the OB line of deodorizers, DCT recommends starting with a 100:1 water to chemical ratio and adjusting as necessary, with only 5 gallons (19 litres) of concentrated chemical additive needed to cover an 8-hour period, meaning workers only need to fill the tank once per shift at a usage rate of just 0.5 to 0.75 gallons of water per minute.
