Case Studies

Performance test of odour abatement

On behalf of United Utilities, KMI commissioned Plasticon Ltd to manufacture and install an odour abatement plant at Burnley Wastewater Treatment Works. As part of the contractual requirements, Plasticon were required to demonstrate the equipment’s ability to conform to the original equipment specifications, as specified by KMI.

SES was commissioned to complete the odour performance test, which included measurements across the abatement equipment of the following key odorous parameters:

  • Odour Concentration (ouE/m3)
  • Hydrogen Sulphide
  • Ammonia
  • Dimethyl Sulphide
  • Total Mercaptans
  • Total Volatile Organic Compounds
  • Air Flows
  • Differential Pressures

Over the course of 28 days, SES were able to fulfil the monitoring requirements and demonstrate that the abatement equipment was performing to specification. In turn, Plasticon were able to hand over the asset to KMI and complete the project.
