Radical Odor Control Technology
Vapex’s Radical Odor Control Technology is a vapor phase treatment that treats odors, remediates surface fats, oils, and grease and mitigates microbial induced corrosion.
The centerpiece of the Vapex technology is the patented three-fluid nozzle that produces less than 5 micron-sized water particles. The water particles combine with ozone, a strong oxidant, to produce the second most powerful oxidant known – the hydroxyl radical.
The high oxidation potential of hydroxyl radicals lessens the need to generate a large amount of ozone, consequently, the units are small in size, energy-efficient, and highly effective in oxidizing odorous compounds including sulfur compounds (Hydrogen sulfide, dimethyl sulfide, Methyl mercaptan, etc.), nitrogen compounds (Ammonia, Methylamine, Indole, Skatole, etc.), and aldehydes (Acetaldehyde, Butryaldehyde, etc.)
The unit treats odors in the space where the odors are generated. Consequently, there is no need to transport, treat, and positively expel air into the atmosphere. Furthermore, since Radical Odor Control Technology needs only air, electricity and water to generate the oxidants there is no need for costly chemical addition or replenishment.
