Following a number of major installations in the poultry industry, Parsons were asked to offer a solution to an existing client whose odour abatement equipment was not performing satisfactorily. Cooking odours and animal products are some of the most common issues dealt with at Parsons, so the client was certainly in good hands.
This particular site produces cooked chicken products and as a result has the additional complication of having to deal with high temperatures and cooking fats associated with the cooking processes. Burning or heated fats and oils often produce fumes and odours, and along with the cooking process of the poultry products themselves, Parsons had to find a solution that covered all areas.
A rental odour abatement package was settled on as the ideal option for resolving the issues. The odour abatement package included a Vane-Pack separator on the inlet to the scrubber, which helped remove and isolate the cooking fats. At a temperature between 20 to 45 degrees (Celsius), the scrubber water/liquor rarely reached over 20 degrees.
To assist in the removal of the products of odour, there is a constant bleed to drain which is topped up with fresh cold water on a cyclical basis. The remaining odours were absorbed through the scrubber column and discharged cleanly into the atmosphere.
The working conditions for the staff was greatly improved and the odour was non-existent along the boundary limits, this meant the Environment Agency were satisfied. Parsons are pleased to be able to support our clients in handling these issues, and as with all of our rental plant, we will continue to provide support and maintenance on the facility as necessary.
Parsons offers a range of odour abatement and wet chemical fume scrubbing solutions to suit any problems that may be arising from any industry. We offer a range of plant to buy, but our rental service is recommended as one of the best in the UK.
With our rental plant, we can source and install the right solution much faster than if you were to buy, and we provide maintenance throughout the rental period, which can be long or short term.
