Awareness of the impact airborne contaminants have on human health and the environment has led to a multitude of regulations in today’s industrial workplace. In order to maintain regulatory compliance, businesses are in need of effective and affordable air pollution control solutions. Unfortunately, most business owners and facility managers do not fully understand what measures they need to take or how to go about implementing a system. All too often, the wrong equipment is used leading to systems that are inadequate or inefficient.
Due to the diverse range of industries, facilities, and conditions involved, air pollution control systems do not typically conform to a standard solution that meets all needs. Air pollution control technologies vary greatly, depending on a number of site-specific factors such as the types of processes used and what target contaminants need to be removed. Air pollutants can include:
- Particulate Matter
- Mercury Emissions
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
- Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs)
- Odor Pollutants
- Oil Mist
- Acid Gas
Since industrial workplace air pollution involves so many varying factors, identifying and implementing an air pollution control system can be a complicated process. Especially when considering the wide range of technologies that can be employed, such as activated carbon systems, baghouses, wet scrubbers, and oxidizer systems. The key to finding an effective and affordable air pollution control solution is working with a qualified partner who can develop a customized solution for you.
Air pollution control typically involves more than a single piece of equipment, so it is important that your air pollution control partner be qualified to develop your system to effectively and efficiently meet your specific needs. It is extremely important to partner with a highly knowledgeable and experienced air pollution control expert. They should not only have expertise in air contaminant removal but also related elements such as air contaminant capture systems, including hoods, enclosures, and ductwork.
Your air pollution control company should work with you to find the custom solution that best fits your facility and processes. They should offer you a variety of options, instead of pushing you toward a particular brand of equipment that may not meet your needs or be most cost-effective for your budget.
