Frequently Asked Questions – Neutralox Photoionisation System – Centralised and Decentralised Odour Control
Photoionisation describes a physical-chemical treatment method for oxidation of odours and other air emissions, originating from waste, sewage and sludge treatment processes.
Photoionisation is essentially based on the application of UV-light and catalysts. The UV-light creates strong oxidizing agents (O-2, OH-, O3 , activated O2 and other free radicals) that begin to oxidize the odor causing compounds.
A downstream catalyst provides a surface, for oxidation of odour compounds.
Photoionisation is very effective and can achieve odour reduction rates of more than 99%.
The main benefit of the system is essentially in the ease of the process.
Furthermore, photoionisation has no requirements regarding inlet air and odour conditions as temperature and humidity variations in the load do not influence or harm the process. No water or chemicals are required for treatment and no side-streams produced.
Maintenance demand is minimal and limited to exchanging inlet filters, UV-lamps and catalyst material every 1-2 years.
Many of our customers have installed multiple systems and repeat orders are common. When asked why they install Neutralox systems over alternative processes their answers are usually:
1. The system eliminates virtually all odours and
2. The operation and maintenance demand is negligible.
Neutralox Photoionisation systems are usually used for the elimination odour generated by wastewater and sludge often found on municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants. We have considerable experience in the treatment of odours from municipal treatment plants as well as in the food industry such as dairies, and abattoirs.
Besides odour reduction, Neutralox Photoionisation provides extensive air disinfection, too.
Analysis has shown, that Photoionisation reduces the number of coliform forming units (CFU) to below the ambient level – just as an by-effect of odour reduction!
