PureAir Filtration’s Packed Bed System (PBS) is a complete self contained, horizontal airflow unit. This deep bed system provides continuous high efficiency air purification for contaminated air streams ranging in volume from 150 to 8,000 CFM. The PureAir PBS comes in either blow-through or draw-through configurations. Standard construction is from stainless steel.
While time and preparation go into design for a particular type of odor, more odors may present themselves during production. Furthermore, it is important to know the surrounding geography.
For this project, the deep tunneling was near the La Brea Tar pits, which presented a serious concern because the H2S levels were expected to be very high. Once drilling began, they experienced other unpleasant odors that needed to be removed from the air.
In 2016, a secondary location was opened in Asheville, North Carolina and began receiving complaints from plant workers and neighbors of smells from plant operation. The fermentation process of brewing beer produces extremely odorous airstreams, and as the brewery has continued to grow, the problem naturally has grown as well.
New Belgium looked to industry leaders to assist in providing a reliable and long term solution for removing the odorous by-products.
