BossTek's OdorBoss Fusion offers waterless, self-contained mobile odor control
BossTek has developed a new autonomous mobile system that uses no water to reduce site odors from soil remediation, landfills, food processing, composting facilities, wastewater operations and other large-scale applications. Unlike conventional water-based odor control equipment, the OdorBoss Fusion takes a different approach, with a patent-pending delivery system that eliminates the need for water dilution. The unique nozzle technology and powerful ducted fan distribute the company's highly effective odor control chemicals over a wide area, and the fully contained, self-powered unit can run for more than a week without operator intervention.
The new design is a fully customizable chemical flow and dispersion method. Operators are able to adjust chemical output by determining run time intervals and duty cycles to suit specific application needs. Powered by an industrial generator in a deluxe enclosure, the OdorBoss Fusion provides a continuous run time of up to 10 straight days without refueling and as much as two months of operation from a standard 275 gallon tote. The fully biodegradable family of chemicals is effective on a wide range of odor sources, including VOCs, sulfides, mercaptans, amines and even ammonia. The unit features a heated enclosure and nozzle with heat tracing to allow operation in virtually any weather.
Mounted on a rugged agricultural trailer with foam-filled tires, the entire system is engineered with industrial-strength components to withstand difficult operating environments. It can also be ordered on a street-legal roadworthy trailer for customers who may want to transport the equipment between facilities.
With a fuel capacity of 200 gallons, the generator employs an EPA Tier 4 compliant engine, which also meets EU Stage IIIB emissions standards. The control panel is housed in a protective NEMA 3R cabinet, and the touchscreen controls allow adjustment of duty cycle and output time. Electrical components are NFPA 110 compliant.
"This design incorporates the features and benefits that have been identified as most important by our customers and others in a wide range of odor-producing industries," commented BossTek Project Engineer Jason Lesch. "It's highly mobile and operates for extended periods without operator intervention, with the ability to adjust chemical usage rates to suit the needs of specific applications. And the unique nozzle technology delivers unmatched versatility, allowing operators to customize operation to best suit their individual conditions."
The nozzle produces chemical droplets in a specific size range, and the powerful 7.5-hp fan delivers an air flow of 9,200 CFM (260.50 CMM) to further atomize the liquid for wide area dispersion. Precise aiming is provided by user-defined oscillation of 0 degrees to 359 degrees, with a vertical adjustment of -18 degrees to 51 degrees. The odor control chemicals can be specified as unscented or with a variety of natural tracer scents to help confirm the unit's efficacy, including cinnamon and fresh-cut grass.
"We've evolved over the years from a well-respected equipment supplier to a custom solutions provider," Lesch continued. "Our new and emerging technologies are developed to meet stated industry needs, with input from a broad spectrum of odor-producing operations.
"After a number of years in the odor control industry, we've received valuable customer feedback from a wide range of different applications," he added. "That input has helped us to continue the evolution of the OdorBoss into the latest generation, with features such as onboard power and eliminating the need for water dilution.
Like all of the company's equipment designs, the OdorBoss Fusion is backed by a 3-year/3,000 hour warranty, with a 2-year/2,000 hour warranty on gensets.
