Scentroid launches an annual re-calibration service for SM100 and SM100i olfactometers

on .

scentroid sm100 kit   The SM100i uses fixed orifice dilution control and therefore requires minimal re-calibration. However standard, annual re calibration should be performed. As a new service for their clients, the company Scentroid offers their new maintenance Service that includes disassemble and ultrasonic cleaning, re-assembly and replacement of all tubing and seals and a final re-calibration.

   The parts that should be sent for calibration are the dilution System of SM100 (or the retrofit Kit for SM100i), the Face Mask, the carbon filter with the tank valve and all the plates. The annual service and recalibration includes the following:

Control of Odor Episodes at the Chemical Parks and Port of Tarragona

on .

sesion06 ramos05   The aim of this work is to present a system to monitor odour incidents to detect odour sources in industrial areas that can cause an odour impact in residential neighbourhoods.

   The area of this study is located between two very important spots of chemical Industrial areas in the port of Tarragona, in the northeast of Spain. Nearby these two industrial areas there are 3 fire stations. In this study, the firemen were trained to perform odour field inspections by means of an android app. In addition, the odour performance of the odour inspectors was also evaluated.
