Odor Control

Odor control is a significant environmental concern for many types of industries and businesses, including wastewater treatment facilities, nursing homes, hospitals, restaurants, and airports. Industrial wastewater treatment generates odors that can be strong, persistent, and a nuisance to employees, residents, businesses, and industries located near the wastewater treatment plant. Because of the increasing intricacy and massive amount of chemicals used by industries worldwide, odor control is constantly evolving. Hospitals deal with odors from helicopters, as well as waste, which is an issue for nursing homes as well. Aircraft emissions, passenger vehicles, and airport services contribute significantly to the abundance of vaporous pollutants and unpleasant odors found in terminals and control towers. Restaurants must contend with kitchen exhaust and garbage odors.

As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of commercial and industrial air filters, AAF Flanders makes a wide variety of products for removing and controlling airborne particulates and gaseous contaminants. Because the need for clean air is universal, AAF Flanders designs air filter products for use in all types of air filtration systems, regardless of the original manufacturer. The scope of applications is unlimited and ranges from ultra-clean air for electronics and pharmaceutical manufacturing, to preventing the spread of infection in hospitals, to removing odors and harmful gases in occupied spaces.
