Nozzle for Odour Control in Food Processing
The removal or suppression of unpleasant odours is a common application within many food processing plants. It may also be a legislative requirement if the factory is situated near housing.
Odour can be controlled by spraying a fine mist of odour-suppressing chemical or water into the area affected. This mist reacts with and absorbs the odour-causing particles and removes them. Generally nozzles that produce very small droplet sizes are required although the reach of such fine mists will need to be considered.
This being the case, misting nozzles such as the MicroWhirl or PJ are often suitable for odour control applications as they produce fine mists at relatively low flow rates. For additional reach, air atomising nozzles such as the XApr might be considered.
Full details on odour control nozzles can be found in the odour control application section.
