AarhusKarlshamn (AAK) is an oil seed processing factory located in a harbor city in Denmark. Since 2005 one Aerox-Injector treats 60,000 m3/h process air coming from the coolers of the rapeseed production line.
Initially AAK installed an 80-meter high chimney. This measure proved insufficient to prevent complaints about oil seed odours. To satisfy the neighbourhood, an Aerox unit was installed outside the extraction plant onto the chimney. The required 80% odour reduction was then achieved and still is until now.
Energy saving wind device
This Aerox-Injector is controlled by a digital wind direction device. If the wind blows from the chimney to the sea, nobody will smell the oil seed odours. The Aerox unit can then be switched off or operate on a lower capacity. This benefits the environment and saves energy.
