Kruger Inc. Provides Odor Monitoring To Over 14 Million Residents Across The U.S
Kruger Inc., a leading water and wastewater technology company, has been implementing odor monitoring for U.S. municipalities since 2010. Since then, over 14 million residents have benefitted from Kruger’s unique OdoWatch real-time odor monitoring system, made by Odotech of Montreal, Quebec.
Kruger’s OdoWatch by Odotech is the world’s first odor monitoring system that takes actual data from emission sources and combines it with real-time weather data to create odor plumes that operators can see to fine-tune plant equipment to reduce off-site odors. Municipalities that have been using OdoWatch over the last several years are located in Florida, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada, Washington, Arizona and California.
In addition to the benefits of being able to proactively manage odors from their facilities, municipal wastewater treatment plants have shown documented savings in operations and capital investment by using OdoWatch. Other benefits include:
- Prioritize odor control projects according to maximum odor reduction benefit
- Know with precision the degree of each monitored process’ contribution to odors
- Optimize plant operations and staff time by quickly diagnosing odor complaints
- Extend the useful life of biofilter media
- Integrate real-time data to ramp up/down odor control equipment, saving energy
- Use objective rather than subjective data to evaluate off-site odors
- Distinguish between monitored sources and outside sources for off-site odors
- Avoid spending capital where it will provide less benefit
