Vandeputte is a cold pressing oil seed processing plant in Belgium. Vandeputte collected a lot of data about their emissions in the past. Based on this information, Aerox advised to focus initially on the highest odour sources instead of treating all process air streams.
Optimal odour control
Based on extensive pilot tests on-site, treating the air from all the presses and from the conditioners, Aerox designed the optimal odour control system in close cooperation with Vandeputte. The Aerox-Injector was placed on the roof and Aerox guaranteed an odour reduction of 80%.
Treating combined airflows
Prior to the Aerox unit, an oil and water separator was installed to remove most of the condensed oil and water droplets, in order to maximize the efficiency of the Aerox-Injector. The combined process airflow of 13,000 m3/h, from presses and conditioners, is treated with one compact Aerox-Injector.
