    Odour nuisance due to the addition of odorants and flavourings

    Client request

    During the production process of breakfast cereals fragrances and flavours are added for better taste. These additives are also partially in the air flow which leaves the building. Furthermore the air flow contains residues from vegetable oils. The production site is located near the centre of a large European city. Both the odour emission as the vegetable oils are a nuisance to the environment and have led to a series of complaints.

    What is the most reliable technique to filter and clean the air?

    geur- en smaakstoffen

    solution AEC SYSTEMS

    After various tests we developed a multi stage wet scrubber including pre-treatment in order to filter the air from vegetable oils. A heat exchanger takes advantage of the residual heat from the airflow to use it elsewhere in the production process. The scrubber is seamlessly integrated into the existing and unique situation of the production site.


    The project contains:

    • a multi stage scrubber
    • a double walled storage tank
    • air ducts
    • an air collect room
    • complet control automation (Siemens) of all components


    Advantages of the AEC Multi Stage Scrubber

    The water packages of the multi stage scrubber have an extra large surface and offer a low air resistance at the filter during the cleaning of the air flow.

    A unique pump technology enables a continuous irrigation of the unit so that it keeps the complete system clean.

    The system, like all products of AEC Systems, is easily accessible and therefore maintenance friendly. These are all advantages why the owner of the sludge treatment plant chose AEC Systems.


    Technical data:

    Air flow: 60.000 m3/h

    Temperature:  50-70˚C

    Why choose AEC Systems?

    All our wet scrubbers are made out of sustainable, fully recyclable material.

    As there are no moving parts used, AEC scrubbers are maintenance-friendly and easy accessible. With the right choice of materials, the system is also corrosion-free and can be used at various temperatures.
